Preservation of Dinosaur Ridge and Surrounding Open Spaces and Park Land.
PETITION OBJECTING TO REZONING & COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT We, the undersigned, object to the forthcoming application to rezone the parcels of land located along C-470 in the Rooney Valley, particularly at the Northwest and Southeast corners of W. Alameda Parkway and C-470 for the reason that this land should be preserved in its natural state for the benefit, education and enjoyment of current and future generations. This land of historic and geologic significance is home to the Dinosaur Ridge Museum and Visitors Center, and lies in the Rooney Valley surrounded by the natural beauty of the Foothills, Dinosaur Ridge, the Dakota Hogback, Green Mountain, Bear Creek Lake, parks and open spaces. The proposed rezoning and commercial development is not compatible with and will forever negatively change the fundamental nature of the area surrounding one of the world's most famous dinosaur fossil localities found in the Morrison Fossil Area National Natural Landmark. Consequently, the rezoning application must also be denied because the proposed development will not promote the health and welfare of the current and future residents and landowners of the surrounding area.
