As Colorado plans for a future with more people and less water, some in the world of water are turning to the problem of lawns.
In the 2014 legislative session, state senator Ellen Roberts (R-Durango) introduced a bill [.pdf] that would limit lawns in new developments if they took water from farms. Although the bill was changed dramatically before it passed, that proposal opened up a statewide conservation about how water from agriculture and the Western Slope is used – particularly when it is growing Front Range grass.
As Colorado’s population steadily rises, many are quick to sport their “native” bumper stickers. The older the Subaru and rattier the bumper sticker, the better the bragging rights. It turns out though that Colorado is one of the most diverse when it comes to domestic migration.
Denver’s Regional Transportation District wants to know what you think about RTD fares. The agency is turning to the public for input as it begins a study of how people use the current fare system in preparation for future Front Range expansions.
