DENVER -- People who live near Crestmoor Park in Denver are going to court to fight City Hall. They're trying to stop a huge apartment complex from going up across the from the park.

They also say it's happening as a result of back-room deals between the developer and Denver City Council. A church previously sat on the two-acre property near South Monaco Parkway and East Cedar Street.

A developer bought the plot last summer. The City Council approved a zoning change allowing construction of the three-story, 75-unit complex despite overwhelming opposition from neighborhood residents.

Julie Hayden has more details about why people in the neighborhood are so upset.
