Another step in the right direction
As many of you know, San Isabel Land Protection Trust has been working since 2014 exploring every possible option to keep the CB ranch irrigated and in agricultural production following its sale to Security Water District. One of those options is connected to the Maverick Ranch in Wellsville (upstream about 12 miles) which also is for sale. It's a bit complex (aren't all things these days, sheesh?!) but the article by San Isabel linked below does a fine job explaining the vision, potential partnerships and possible outcomes that would result in a win-win for all.
While this may be a long shot, we must continue to exhaust every opportunity before us! And it seems that important funders such as the Gates Family Foundation believe the same and clearly understand the importance and urgency of developing and implementing creative water solutions to preserve important ranchlands and communities like ours.
