The Larimer County Open Lands Advisory Board will meet Jan. 24 to make its recommendation to the Larimer County Commissioners regarding accepting the donation of the Roberts Ranch, a 16,500-acre cattle ranch near Livermore.

In making the decision, the Board will consider information about potential management options and costs, as well as a waste tire site on the property. An opportunity for public comment follows the county staff’s presentation.

The meeting is 5 to 8 p.m. at the Loveland Municipal Building’s City Council Chambers, 500 E. 3rd Street in Loveland. The board will begin at 5 p.m. in Executive Session and then the meeting will be opened to the public at 5:45 p.m.

The Larimer County Commissioners will hold a public hearing regarding the Roberts Ranch donation on Feb. 4, at 6:30 p.m. in the first floor Hearing Room of the County Courthouse Offices at 200 W. Oak St. in Fort Collins. After the public hearing, the Commissioners will make a final decision of whether the county will accept the gift of the Roberts Ranch.
