Reader: Union Station light-rail plaza isn't the only one that could spur development

Last week, Chris Utterback took readers on a photo tour of Union Station -- one that focused on the facility's future and the just-opened Light Rail Plaza.

The subject of light rail inspired one reader to argue that this particular station isn't the only one on the line that offers opportunities.

Too bad RTD doesn't have the sense to encourage development surrounding the REST of the light-rail stations...ridiculous, underused, islands in the middle of nowhere. How did transit-oriented development in Denver get so left behind?
