We had a fantastic turnout yesterday for the critical round one hearing in front of the Planning & Zoning Commission. It was a win last night - by the narrowest of margins possible (a tie) – but a win. The application was denied in front of the Commission. It still has to be reviewed by the Board of County Commissioners and they can ignore the P&Z Commission decision. We can win this fight outright and defeat the WOLF II proposal. But we cannot stop fighting; nor rest long. It has been over a yearlong battle which has been stressful and taxing on all. Attending an evening meeting in the middle of the week some 40 miles from home is a personal sacrifice and is greatly appreciated. This process has not been conducted in a balanced, honest or fair manner and we will be addressing that again moving forward.
I want to thank everyone who has been part of this fight – success simply could not happen without an entire community effort as we have had here. Thank you all!
I am hesitant to mention individual names for the fear of neglecting someone very important to this fight. However, there simply have been a few folks that warrant mention. A special thanks to Ed Hansen and Cheri Dent for speaking and rallying the Larimer County Stock Growers association and their members. Thank you very much to all the neighbors in the Red Feather Highlands, Glacier View Meadows and the Weeks family that have pitched in, contributed, spoke, put their names and faces out there and attended the various meetings. We simply would not be where we are today without Rob Niedenzu and John Rehberg.
As an attorney who has tackled matters before where, frankly, the rules and processes are stacked against us I truly appreciate having clients who are so willing to work hard together and contribute their time and efforts for the overall cause. Thank you everyone. A couple days off and then round two!
