Support La Plata County Comp Plan & Dismissal of Planning Commission Members

    1. Petition by

      Andrew Kayner

      Durango, CO

A great number of informed, sincere La Plata county residents, representing all sectors of our community, came to every public meeting on the comp plan and gave hours of input. Now, despite all that effort by so many, the process is being derailed by a very vocal, adversarial minority who have entered the process at his late date, and give comments like: “delete any reference to sustainability”. We feel that the Planning Commission is now summarily disregarding the informed work of the community and gutting the plan. This is not true public process.

The document sent to Planning Commission by the Community Working Group was a good document based on sound and extensive public process. It includes a lot of compromise by all sides.

The undersigned strongly encourage the Planning Commission and the Board of County Commissioners to not destroy the hard work of the dedicated reasonable community members who want to move the County into the 21st Century.

      La Plata County Commissioners,

      As a small business owner in La Plata County, I am most concerned with quality of life issues. We live in a isolated area of the country and we must depend upon the resources found within the Four Corners. Economic decisions and quality of life issues go hand-in-hand. Sustainable growth is much more important than fast growth and collapse. It would be foolish not to accept concepts of slow growth and sustainability in a multi-year, county-wide Comprehensive Plan.

      Thank you for your consideration.

      I am one of the many people who put time and energy into many meetings concerning the Land Use Plan. We voted and discussed our options. The people have decided what we want for our future, and these few zealots have no business negating that process.

      As a 75 year old true believer in the democratic process I know what works is a cooperative, collaborative process which honors input from all the citizens. Regardless of what word you use, sustainability has to the hallmark of how we process as a citizens of the Earth, the United States, Colorado, Durango, and as a viable way for each of us to survive and thrive. Listen to the public!
