LETTER: Follow rules already in place

By The Staff

I am extremely interested in the issue of drilling for oil and gas now before us in Mora County.

This, truly, is the time for our Mora County commissioners and the planning and zoning officials to stand behind the excellent Development Guidance System and Comprehensive Land Use Guidelines. These documents are well articulated and should remain in their original design.

These documents were wisely created by our elders in 1995 to protect Mora as an agricultural county. They were rendered with great foresight. They have become model plans for other counties. These DGSs are what we want to support, not weaken with changes. I count on our Mora County officials also to support these model DGS and Comprehensive Land Use Guideline documents. This is crucial to sustain the health and well-being of Mora residents, friends, families and visitors.

This is with gratitude for our beautiful homeland of Mora
