History of Visual Impact Part I: 1971-1986

by Beecher Threatt

beecher@ouraynews.com
This is the first in a three-part series examining the history of visual impact. This part summarizes 1971-1986.
As the county gears up for another in its infinite list of hearings on visual impact regulations, the Plaindealer looks back at the history of visual impact in Ouray County. We have studied Plaindealer electronic and hard copy story files, minutes of past Board of County Commissioners and Ouray County Planning Commission meetings, BOCC resolutions and Land Use Department files. The BOCC has land use jurisdiction in the entire county, outside the municipal boundaries of Ouray and Ridgway.

1971-82

Western Slope Food and Farm Forum focuses on adapting to climate change and working together

by Mary Pat Haddock
marypat@ouraynews.com

Last week’s Western Slope Food and Farm Forum, held in Montrose, opened with Jerri Omernik, of Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, 4H Club and Edward Jones, describing the Continental Divide as being “a barrier in being able to participate in educational opportunities.” She explained the forum was intended to remove that barrier for Western Slope farmers and ranchers. She went on to say, “what fits guys on the Front Range and Eastern Plains doesn’t fit on our side of the hill” and promised the forum would focus on locally relevant information.

How appropriate that a festival that comes together each year supported by the volunteer spirit of giving was capped off in that same spirit. Ines Papert, who won first place in the mixed climbing and speed climbing female divisions, turned around and gave her winnings from the speed competition back to Ouray Ice Park, Inc. (OIPI).
