Colorado Elected Officials Offer Views on President Trump’s State of the Union Address

“Everywhere I go in Colorado, people tell me they can’t afford some combination of housing, health care, child care, or higher education – in other words, a middle-class life.

Chaffee Planning Commission Delays decision on Ag Subdivision Text Amendment

“My recollection of why this comes forward – is not what staff is saying – it was to be available to ranchers that if they have a need to chip off a piece [of land] they would be able to do that. They still have to prove agricultural use. When you restrict it to residential – you can’t put a fruit stand out there. This is to compliment an existing operation. To me when we remove ‘residential’ and call it just ‘a lot’ and it’s in the zone that already exists…the whole effort has been to keep ranchers ranching.”
