The second of two public open house meetings hosted by Larimer County on the Thornton Water Pipeline Project and related Northern Integrated water delivery alternatives takes place next Thursday, and is the final public meeting being offered on the project.

The open house is an opportunity for anyone interested to learn more and provide feedback on multiple alternative alignments to the proposed water project, the 1041 process, and associated impacts or benefits. Community input will assist the Board of Larimer County Commissioners in their decisionmaking process on the project.

When: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Nov. 15, 2018, with a short presentation at 6:15 p.m.

Where: Block One Events, 428 Linden St., Fort Collins, Colorado

Larimer County has also formed a working group and hired an independent outside facilitator to help manage public engagement on the project.

At a land use hearing on August 1, 2018, the Board of Larimer County Commissioners voted to table their decision on the project until December 17, 2018, citing failure by the city of Thornton to meet all 12 requirements for a 1041 permit, possible alternative routes, mitigation on the effects of the project to residents in the area, and the need for extensive public outreach on the project.
