Local residents have discovered a plan by a private landowner to build two 1/3 mile fences across Jefferson County open space in the hogback area. Jefferson County has to date made no public notice about their position on allowing the fence. The private landowner has a driveway easement across the open space, known as "Parcel A", which is to the North of the Ken Caryl Valley neighborhood and on the west side of the hogback.
The local residents organized a website at www.stopthefence.com and an online petition at https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/no-fence
The petition was submitted to the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners and the Jefferson County Open Space Advisory Committee on September 8th, urging them to oppose the fence and to notify the public of the proposed private fence cutting through the middle of public-owned open space property.
