FORT COLLINS, Colorado -- The grim tone improved Thursday, Feb. 19 at the second of two feedback sessions regarding new potential land use regulations for horse business owners as common themes emerged: Unify, simplify and loosen.
By evening’s end, horse businesses owners realized the need to unify. “This is really important. We have to, on this one, band together,” said Jenny McGraw, real estate broker, horse owner and former mayor of Timnath.
McGraw called it “a great one,” acknowledging a comment Tuesday at the first feedback session by Linda Hoffman, facilitator of the land use rules study, who noted the diverse interests of local horse enthusiasts, and quipped, “You all don’t even trust each other.”
