Haworth Annexation

Haworth Annexation

I am particularly disappointed in the Town’s process that led to the annexation of the Haworth property west of County Road 19. This property was outside of Berthoud’s Comprehensive Plan for growth when the Town Board enticed the owners to apply for annexation. The issue that I have with this annexation has nothing to do with the family who owns that land. To me, it is ... Full Story

Town Board doesn’t get it

Town Board doesn’t get it

Dear Editor: The Berthoud Town Board does not get it. They just voted to sell the town property where the BMX track is located, once the site of a future rec center. They did not ask the taxpayers who own the property what they would like to see built there. It was purchased in 2000, but now the Town has other land for a rec center. The profit from selling the old property will be put in the rec center fund. The property is zoned for multi family (R-3), which makes sense close to the shopping ... Full Story

Next Tuesday they have an opportunity to correct their mistake. Here is a thumbnail history of how the Town has handled this issue, despite a clear consensus in 2007 that the Town should not expand west into rural Larimer County. First, on October 23rd, 2012, at the urging of Town staff, the Town Trustees opposed a Larimer County Rural Land ... Full Story
