We just got word that the decision to approve or deny our grant money request regarding augmentation water for our ECHPOA pond by the Park County Board of County Commissioners scheduled for this week on Thursday, December 14th, in Fairplay, has been “cancelled until a later date.” We will let you know as soon as we hear of a reschedule date. Meanwhile, we are still accepting money donations to help with augmentation costs, letters of support to help influence grant decisions, and partners willing to give us additional grant money so that we may be able to reach the total amount needed to save our pond. Checks can be made out and sent to ECHPOA, 86 Elk Creek Drive, Bailey, CO 80421.
Call or send an email to the 3 commissioners listed below that are deciding whether or not to approve our grant. DO IT TODAY! Let them know how important our pond is to our community! Topics to discuss with the commissioners could include:
- Compliance with state water law
- Fire safety for community members and firefighters
- Wildlife and habitat benefits
- Preserve open space and property values
Their decision will be made on December 14th! COME SHOW YOUR SUPPORT! Meeting begins at 9:30 am, 501 Main Street, in Fairplay, CO.
