We will update you on all of our work, tell you what happened this year, and what's going to happen next year with our almost-15 year fight against the Northern Integrated Supply Project. In addition, our guest speaker will be former Fort Collins City Councilmember and Sierra Club Raconteur Alan Apt who has a new book out. Published by the Colorado Mountain Club and titled, Ski and Snowshoe Routes on Colorado's Front Range, the book describes and maps the best routes all along the Front Range mountains all within easy driving distance of Larimer County. Alan will also generously donate a portion of book sales to Save The Poudre at the event! Alan has a great slideshow, and his book might make a perfect holiday gift for a snow-loving friend or family member. WHAT: SAVE THE POUDRE YEAR-END PARTY WHERE: AVOGADRO'S NUMBER, 605 S.

For Immediate Release March 29, 2018 Save The Poudre, Gary Wockner: 970-218-8310 Larimer County Must Use "1041" for NISP, not IGA Cache la Poudre River, USA: Today, Save The Poudre sent a legal letter to the Larimer County Commissioners notifying them that they must use a "1041" permit process for evaluating and regulating the Northern Integrated Supply Project ("NISP") rather than an Intergovernmental Agreement ("IGA"). The letter (posted here) states that Larimer County's IGA provisions "are unconstitutionally vague and violate due process". Further, the letter cites numerous legal precedents where other Colorado counties have used 1041 regulations for projects exactly like NISP. "Larimer County's IGA provisions are unconstitutionally vague and violate due process," said Gary Wockner of Save The Poudre. "The County must use a 1041 permit process -- just as other Colorado counties have done -- to give the people of Larimer County their legal due process to evaluate and speak out about this important issue facing the county's future." ***END
