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 Amazing Poudre River Lovers!
We have a once-in-100 years opportunity to help restore the Poudre River, and your voice can help do that — don’t miss out!!
On January 28th, the Larimer County Commissioners will be making a decision on the Thornton Pipeline. Save The Poudre and many homeowners north of Fort Collins have been working with Larimer County for over a year to support the County Commissioners in saying “NO” to the Thornton Pipeline and “YES” to the Poudre River.
Thornton can send their water down the Poudre River and remove that water from the river near Windsor, instead of putting the water in a massively damaging pipeline across northern Larimer County. This is a “win-win” for Thornton, Larimer County, and the Poudre River.
