Time to meet your precinct neighbors

Do you know Colorado is only one of 10 states that still has a local precinct committee meeting every two years (caucus)? It is a social venue where you can meet your neighbors and engage in supporting our Constitution and exercising you rights both nationally and locally.

The next meeting is at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 7. Every precinct in Colorado will meet for about two hours. To find the location of your neighborhood meeting, go to: http://www.caucus.cologop.com

Please spread the word.

Preserve the views

On Feb. 10 and 11, 42 concerned citizens testified at a public hearing for amendments to the Comprehensive Plan for the development of the open land between 84th and 88th Avenues and Federal and Lowell boulevards and several outlying parcels of land.

One parcel, Parcel B, is located generally between 84th and 82nd Aves. and from Lowell Blvd. west to the Shaw Heights boundary. Many of the citizens who testified were very concerned about the loss of the incredible views from the top of the hill near the new water tanks. The developer offered to save a portion of Parcel B at the corner of Lowell and Bradburn Dr., and another small area at the corner of La Place Ct. and Bradburn Dr. to preserve the views which are not available from these two locations.

The developer and the City Council seemed to have the idea that the people testifying for the preservation of the south part of Parcel B for Open Space for everyone to enjoy were only interested in saving their own views.

NO! The people who were testifying have views, but they are totally not affected by the proposed development on Parcel B. Their desire is truly to conserve this land for the public to be able to walk, or play, or meditate in a natural setting that is inspiring in its beauty and once put into housing will never be replaced.

This land is part of Westminster’s legacy.

Laura Nokes Lang,

Westminster
