LITTLETON, Colo. -- A group of residents is fighting City Hall and a big developer, protesting a project that's going in at West Littleton Boulevard and South Bemis Street.

Residents say it will have a negative impact on their property values and the character of the historic neighborhood.

They say the city approved the development without any citizen input and declared it meets zoning code when it does not.

One resident calls it "an urban architecture that's getting dropped like a bomb into this historic neighborhood."

Neighbors have filed a lawsuit to try to stop the development.

They plan to march to Littleton City Hall on Tuesday and urge city council members to halt construction, at least until a court can rule.
