Updates on the 5th and 20th

Hi All, Sorry for the delay, however, I felt it was important to provide accurate information, regarding the Board of County Commissioner’s decision regarding the application of PM et al, LLC for various Park Co marijuana licenses.  Below are the conclusions and order for denial of the licenses, resolved by the Commissioners:

1.    Based on the evidence adduced at the public hearing the Board concludes   that there is
sufficient evidence to allow it to conclude that the reasonable requirements of the neighborhood
are not met by existing retail marijuana establishments. There are no licensed marijuana
establishments in the designated neighborhood.

2. The Board concludes, however, that there was persuasive evidence that the desires of the adult
inhabitants of the neighborhood oppose issuance of the license. All of the petition signatures were
against the issuance of the licenses.

3.         Moreover, all the testimony from persons in interest at the public  hearing,
i.e. persons residing in the designated neighborhood, opposed the issuance of the licenses. Even if
the Board were to discount these signatures and testimony, the Applicant failed to present any
evidence that the desires of the adult inhabitants of the neighborhood favor issuance of the
licenses. Under these circumstances the Board must conclude that the requirements for the issuance
of a retail marijuana cultivation facility and retail marijuana infused products manufacturing
licenses for this location have not been met. Ordinance No. 16-01 § 7(h).
Based on the Findings and Conclusions set forth above, the application for retail marijuana
cultivation facility  and  retail  marijuana  infused  products  manufacturing
licenses is DENIED.

In addition to this information, I would like to post a link to some information on the upcoming Ranch Christmas Party:

I am delaying the update on the 20th so that I can include information from Board of County Commissioner’s meeting on the marijuana license.

Marijuana app update Public Hearing September 22, 2016

Posted By: Suzan : September 24, 2016 10:43 AM

Per Ron Rose; 9/22/2016-Just a quick update on today’s Public Hearing.

Both Tom and I were there along with many other residences of RORA.  Standing room only, around 45 people give or take.

Good thing this was the first topic on the public hearing section.  We did not get out of there until 2:30pm.

All spoke in opposition to the request except for one person that was in support of it.

The County Commissioners opted to not make a decision at this time and have set and agenda on the October 20th BOCC meeting to do that.

Fire Mitigation Assistance (Chipper)

Posted By: Tom : September 22, 2016 8:34 AM


What: Hartsel Fire Protection District (HFPD) will be providing wood chipping service for Ranch of the Rockies (RORA) property owners.

When: For approximately one month at the HFPD’s schedule.

How: To arrange a schedule, you will need to contact the assistant fire chief (Chris) at 719-836-3500 and arrange a date and time for them to bring the chipper by.

Where: You will need to stack the slash in an area accessible from the road. The material must be wood only, no larger in diameter than 14 inches.  Do not place where traffic will be obstructed.

The wood chips will not be removed from the site, that will be up to the property owner to decide what they want to do with the chips.
