Park County changed our laws in 2008 allowing us 2 horses up to 10 acres, we can change this law back to what we had which was 1 horse per acre with no buildings on it. The way you do this is to go to Fairplay on Thursday morning and stand before the commissioner's, tell them why you are unhappy about the change and give them a solution to the problem.

I have done this already, they are re-writing the LUR's right now and we can get it changed back. THey deminished the value of my home with this change and I was un-able to sell my home because everyone that looked at my home wanted 3 or 4 horses. We must work fast and get as many people up there as we can.

it is every Thursday, sooner is better as they are writing the LUR's over as we speak. Please notify as many people as you can to go before the commissioner's. 10 am has been the time's that I have gone up.

Good Luck

Thank you for the info! For those of us who must be at work, are there any alternative times or is it possible to call or write them?

Check your zoning - there are areas in Park County where more horses are allowed...make sure your corral makes the setbacks, do you have a domestic well - is it registered in your name....or are you going to have water hauled in or haul in water yourself?

If you have recently purchased a home - even though horses lived on the property prior - horses may not be allowed on that property now (due to setbacks, zoning changes, etc., etc.).

Always do your research!

Great point -it would be nice to see how these read before the changes...I'm drafting my letter and was going to refer back to the prior laws and then realized I don't know exactly what they were!

I noticed that the Park Co website has their proposed revisions posted. I don't see this change incorporated into the proposals. It says they are pending BOCC approval today!

Get your letters/faxes/bodies down there pronto. I'm faxing mine in right now.

From the regs for residential:

C. Residential (R) Zone District.
1. Horses and 4-H project animals are the only type of Large Livestock permitted in the Residential zone district. The maximum number of horses allowed on a lot in the Residential zone district is two. The lot must have one acre of open space for each horse. Any lot smaller than ten acres created after August 23 2003 may not contain horses.
1.
Each lot may have ten Small Livestock animals for each acre of open space.
2.
Lots smaller than ten acres may have up to six Domesticated Animals. Lots that are ten acres or more may have up to ten Domesticated Animals.

Here's the link that get you to the current regulations and proposed regulations in pdf:

http://www.parkco.us/index.aspx?nid=189

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't see how the current regs for Residential zone are different than the proposed ones. The OP stated that this changed in 2008. I was not able to find the regs prior to 2008.

Only in Park County do we approve only 2 horses but 4 yaks.

Does anyone have a yak, or know somebody who does?

That being said, I don't see any difference either, between the existing and proposed regs as they apply to horses in areas zoned residential. OP, are we missing something? a notice or something that you ran across?
