Boulder County recently began construction on an underpass that will enable cyclists and pedestrians to avoid vehicle traffic as they cross Northbound Highway 119 at Airport Road. Tim Swope, Boulder County transportation capital projects coordinator, said, “This completes a bike and pedestrian link that we’ve wanted to put in for a long time.”

Auction House May Be Replaced By MJ Grow Operation June 2014

It is possible that a marijuana grow operation is coming to Niwot, according to business owner Tim Wise. The building in question is located at 6924 N. 79th Street and currently houses Elysian Fields’ auction house. 

When asked about a possible sale of the property, or if a marijuana operation is being planned, the building’s owner, Charles Stewart, said that he wouldn’t comment on the sale of private property.

One major concern for the Niwot community is whether or not public comment will be allowed in any county approved process. Typically, public comment would be allowed during a Site Plan review. 

According to Senior Planner for Boulder County Land Use Hannah Hippely, having a marijuana growing facility would not necessarily trigger a site review. “The Land Use Code exempts some land use from site review,” Hippely said. “From retail use to that of MMJ does not go through a site review process.”

The weather is getting warmer, and Niwot residents and Boulder County officials are ramping up efforts to prepare for spring runoff.

Boulder County Commissioners took steps in March and April to get property owners to sign “right-of-entry” permission forms allowing county contractors access to private property to do stream-channel repairs and debris cleanup. If the cleanup is done by county contractors, most of the cost will be covered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the state of Colorado.
