7 Dec

There is a very important meeting December 14th on the 3rd floor of the Boulder County Courthouse at 1:30 pm.

The meeting is regarding the “Potential Land Use Code Text Amendments Related to Agricultural Uses”.

Even though this meeting isn’t directly related to residental building codes, there are a lot of very important things the county wants to change/address that will have a huge impact on residents of unincorporated Boulder County. Here are just a few:

  • If you have a horse in Boulder County, pay attention: many of the proposed recommendations will limit the rights of people to keep horses throughout Boulder County. For additional information, go to http://www.boulderhorse.org or contact them at info@boulderhorse.org.
  • Community Gardens are now limited in size: when Niwot applied for a park across from Whistle Stop park (park with the caboose), Niwot could only include a very small community garden because if it were too large, it would be a “2nd principal use and you can’t have two principal uses” – park and ag.
  • Limiting Christmas tree sales or other farm stands to 90% grown on the site – silly.

There are many other issues such as these – the meeting is worth attending!
