The BOCC has postponed the work session on the Marijuana licensing until next week.

FYI-New Marijuana Grow license application

Posted By: Suzan : August 22, 2016 7:58 AM

The RORA Board of Directors have been informed of a new marijuana grow license being requested for a location that is about 3 miles to the east of some parts of the ranch.

This license request is on the agenda of this weeks Park County Board of County Commissions Working Session on Wednesday August 24th.

Some of the RORA Board of Directors plan to attend this Working Session to gain more information on the license request.  Once we learn more we will communicate it here.

Our expectation is that the Park County Commissioners will have a Public Hearing sometime in September or October where all residences can formally voice their opinion on the license request.  We will post when the Public Hearing will be as soon as learn.

Here are the details on this topic from this weeks BOCC Working Session Agenda posted on the Park County Website.


Address: At the SW ¼ of Section 17, Township 14 South, Range 75 West of the 6th P.M., addressed as 1667 Butterfield Road, Hartsel, CO, 80449.  Applicant: Philip Phelps

On August 13th we had our annual picnic at the RORA Pavilion.  The weather was great this year, unlike last year no wind to speak of this year.  We had over 150 in attendance that enjoyed a nice Colorado blue sky before some high clouds rolled in later in the day.

The Board of Directors conducted their monthly meeting that was followed by several speakers that included our County Commissioner, Mark Dowaliby, and representatives from Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Park County Sheriff Department and Hartsel Fire Protection District.

Ed Hart, Member at Large

This was the end of Mike Brown’s term on the Board of Directors.  All of us would like to thank Mike for service on the board.  We had an election to fill Mike’s position on the Board and had two members running for the position.  Ed Hart was elected to the three year term.

After the speakers were done we all enjoyed a traditional picnic of hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst and a ton of side dishes and desserts.  No one should have left hungry.

I would like to thank Jeff Deardorff, John Adams and all of their volunteers that planned and organized the picnic.  This could not be done without everyone’s help.
