Public hearing: 'Next door' becoming part of the city

FORT COLLINS, Colorado -- Who would have thought more than 20 years ago when we came here, that the city would ever come to us? 

The city's Planning and Zoning Board will conduct a public hearing regarding the annexation of the trailer park property on our stable's east border, approximately 1/4 mile east of N. Shields St. on the Poudre River, at 6 p.m.Thursday, City Hall, 300 LaPorte Ave., Fort Collins. 

Developer Gino Campana bought the trailer park property last year with plans to build new homes on the 17.3 acre site, each priced at approximately $450,000. Trailer park residents moved out last month.

Meanwhile, the Fort Collins-Larimer County $5-million project to widen Shields Street and replace the Poudre River bridge on our west border continues. We have a mystery on our hands, as a hand-written document created more than 100 years ago, 1896 to be exact, calls into question who owns extra footage for the widening -- residents or the county?
