Public Hearings

Published by at 6:24 am under General Information

Huerfano County is currently faced with a number of issues that are creating  concern regarding impact in our Scenic Corridor.  In addition to the recent Gas Well Exploration activity, there is also concern over a new proposed  Electric Transmission Line and a new Wind Farm.  While this may constitute progress to some, there are a great number of impact issues that will adversely effect not only property owners but also our tourism, scenic vistas and recreational resources. 

Public Hearings are scheduled for Monday, Nov. 9  for the proposed Southern Colorado Transmission Line and for Tuesday, Nov. 17  for the Silver Mountain Wind Farm. Hearings will be held at the Huerfano County Community Center in Walsenburg.
