Vote No on 241

Dear Editor, I am a fifth generation Larimer County native, one generation removed from the cattle business. I am concerned about Berthoud’s unneeded Growth Management Area (GMA) expansions and annexations outside of existing GMA boundaries. Berthoud’s current GMA is over 24,000 acres in size. Berthoud currently has 10,712 lots in some type of planning review (enough for a population of well over 30,000 people). The current GMA is large enough to make Berthoud similar in population ...

Haworth Annexation

To the Editor, As a citizen of the Berthoud community, I am increasingly concerned about the issues arising in our town.

Boom town Berthoud?

Boom town Berthoud?

Berthoud on the verge of real estate boom? According to a recent article in the Norther Colorado Business Report and a corresponding interview on KUNC radio that is the case. The article says, among other things, that construction will begin on the Safeway store next year, with an opening in 2012. That was certainly news to Mayor Tom Patterson. He has seen no change in conditions that would warrant a change in Safeway's plans and he has certainly not been informed by the company or their ... Full Story
