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
Hi Poudre River Lovers!
After 15 years, it appears the “Final Environmental Impact Statement” for NISP will be released in May or June. We have word from the City of Fort Collins that the timeline is likely, and so we need to gear up!
We have a team of scientists and attorneys who standing by to sink their teeth into the documents. We’ve been at it for 15 years, and we’re just getting warmed up! We also ask all of you — our AMAZING supporters — to also gear up! We will need volunteers to help review the document, and we will need funding to help pay scientific experts.
Stay tuned for more updates!
Director, Save The Poudre
