On February 22, 2002, The Denver Post featured a report that "stung by criticism of limits on worship space at Stapleton, the Interfaith Council at Stapleton will draw up a list of restrictions so religious leaders can at least know the ground rules from the beginning... Letters will be sent soon to hundreds of religious organizations that may want to build worship centers, said Landri Taylor, a spokesman for Forest City Inc., which is developing the former Stapleton airport... The amount of land churches, synagogues, mosques or temples can buy has been stated at various times as anywhere from 3 to 10 acres. Buildings would share a parking lot... An interfaith center will open in Stapleton's Town Center complex, rather than in a neighborhood. It will be a place of dialogue, meetings and seminars, not a place of worship."
