Bills from the people
of Fort Collins,
Prime Sponsored by Jeni Arndt

The Farm Stand Bill -
This bill allows for farm stands to operate on principal use sites of any sized land area regardless of whether the site has been zoned by a local government for agricultural operations. This benefits the agricultural community as well as the consumer by providing an alternative method for agricultural producers to sell their products while supplying quality agricultural products at reasonable prices. The direct marketing of agricultural products benefits the agriculture industry by bringing producers of agricultural goods face-to-face with consumers.

Augmentation Of Instream Flows Act -This act authorizes the Colorado water conservation board to augment stream flows to preserve or improve the natural environment to a reasonable degree by the use of an acquired water right that has been previously quantified and changed to include any augmentation use, without a further change of the water right being required.

School Psych Bill -
This bill grants parity for Fort Collins school psychologists with the NCSP credential to receive the equivalent stipends that teachers, principals, and counselors are eligible for with their national board certifications.

Water/Land Master Plan Bill -
This bill requires that if a local government’s comprehensive plan includes a water supply element, it must also include conservation policies so that communities can make sure that when they are planning for the future, they consider water.

Reimburse Expenses Restorative Justice Council Bill -
Concerns allowing reimbursement for expenses for members of the restorative justice coordinating council.
