Fort Collins: Citizens Fight Silo Decision

In late April Woodward received permission to dismantle two old silos on its new corporate campus after much discussion and debate. But an appeal has been filed by a group of residents (Save Our Silos) who want the silos designated as landmarks even though they’ve already been removed. The Non-consensual Landmark Designation of the Coy Farmstead will be heard by the City Council on July 5.
Under Fort Collins’s historic preservation ordinance, the City Council can designate a property as historic over the objections of a property owner. Any resident can apply for a designation on any property in the City, which is absurd and creates delays and expense for property owners.
