I wanted to let you know that your Franktown Citizen’s Coalition II has a new Vision Statement and to give all of you a quick update.
“FAITHFULLY SAFEGUARD FRANKTOWN’S RURAL CHARACTER AND NATURAL RESOURCES.”
I know this is a little later in the month than my usual monthly updates, but I’ve been waiting on information from Douglas County Planning to confirm when the new FVPD application will be filed. Instead of waiting any longer, thought I’d just send you all a quick email. As you should all be aware from my last two emails, the information originally was that the new FVPD application would be filed this month. Nothing has been filed yet so I have reached out to Joe Fowler at Douglas County Planning to find out if there is new confirmed information/dates on the developers’ timeline. So far I don’t have the final word. I will send out a second email as soon as I get that information.
I am getting information that some people in Franktown still aren’t aware of this development proposal so we want to “ramp up” getting the word out. We are going to start up a Marketing and Communications Committee so there is a concerted effort to get out the word to the public to newspapers, radio and TV news more. Sara Scott (member of the FCC II Steering Committee will be heading up the Marketing and Communications Committee). Please let me know if you can volunteer for this very important committee. We had a huge turnout at the last Planning Commission. It was definitely noted by the commissioners. We want to make sure that communications are clear and widespread so we can get an even bigger crowd for the next hearings and get more news on TV and radio and in newspapers.
For now we have planned to send a postcard in the mail at the end of this month to all of Franktown with a quick outline of information. Later there will be a two page flyer to be distributed that will have more detailed information.
We still plan on large meetings at the Franktown fire station to bring everyone up to speed as soon as the new application is filed. We will also be asking at these meetings for volunteers to help with the above noted Marketing and Communications Committee. Get involved and help “safeguard” Franktown! Lots of work to be done that needs all of you.
This development is still in the works. It has not gone away. It’s just taking longer for the new filing than anyone expected. Please be assured, as soon as I hear, you will get the update.
