Put it on your calendar: Tuesday, November 28! The Board of County Commissioners will hear an appeal from the Gail Willey Colorock company to overturn the Board of Adjustment decision to deny their plan to move the operation into the Pleasant/Steamboat Valley area. This is a travesty! It has been denied by the CAB, the Planning Commission, the appeal to the Planning Commission, and the Board of Adjustment. Now, they will appeal the Board of Adjustment decision to the Board of County Commissioners. It is terrible for the neighbors and a scary precedent that any zoning rule can be overturned by the corrupt board. It’s not that different than getting a freeway in your backyard. Those masters-of-malfeasance (the county commissioners) will be led by our own Bob Lucey who reportedly supports this move. I know we’re all exhausted from the unrelenting county scandals, but please attend the meeting and support your neighbors. You may find it satisfying to assert yourself against the corrupt machine. I’ll update you with the time when we have that detail.
