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.

Nmican writes:

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?
