Board Approves 80 Acre “Allan Farms”
Open Space Annexation
Correction - Yesterday’s Board of Trustees Action Items contained an inaccurate description of the Allan Farms Open Space Annexation. Here is the correct description of the property and the Board’s determination:
During Tuesday night’s meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the Allan Farms Open Space Annexation. The property is approximately 80 acres in size and located on the east side of 119th Street north of Jasper Road. In a separate action, the Board approved the Zoning of the property as Agricultural/Open Space.
With the recent purchase and annexation of Allan Farms, the Town of Erie’s Open Space portfolio currently consists of approximately 1,200 acres of which, approximately 85% of those acres have been purchased by the Town and are uniquely Erie. Approximately 15% are held in a conservation easement with Boulder County.
