Friends of Falcon

Friends of Falcon met last month with Falcon Highlands homeowners who are concerned about drainage issues for which neither the county nor the metropolitan district are assuming responsibility. Residents were also concerned that the developer’s application to increase residential density in the next filing would exacerbate the issues and potentially have a negative impact on the health and safety of both current and future residents. That potential stress on infrastructure is an example of why Friends of Falcon advocates for including proper infrastructure as part of “responsible development.” To put that advocacy into action, Friends of Falcon representatives advised the residents on how to frame their concerns for the El Paso County Planning Commission in terms of the established decision criteria. The Planning Commission sided with residents and voted 5-2 to recommend denial of the Falcon Highlands South application. It next goes to the El Paso County Board of County Commissioners on Dec. 14 for a final decision. In the end, the planning commission vote is proof that citizen input matters.
