Despite initial agreement, town board considers dealership at Colo. 392, Interstate 25 interchange

After "Dealin'" Doug Moreland bought two pieces of land near Colo. 392 and Interstate 25 totaling 113 acres earlier this year, the automobile dealer made it clear that he would ideally like to develop dealerships and commercial business at the location.

He bought 53 acres from the Poudre Valley Health System and 60 acres from Mutual Omaha Loan Pro, LLC.

An agreement made between Windsor and Fort Collins when the 392 and I-25 interchange was improved in 2011 directly mentioned auto dealerships as an undesirable use of land.

However, during Monday night's town board work session, board members sounded more open to the idea.

Since the work done on the interchange, the town has seen two applications for use: Moreland's hope for a dealership and another land owner's hope for detached, single family homes. Both of which were outlined as undesirable in the original agreement.

While the town doesn't have a formal position on allowing the project or not, they're waiting to see if Fort Collins would also be open to amending the Corridor Activity Center agreement.

If Fort Collins officials are willing to discuss a possible amendment, then Windsor's town board will meet jointly in the future to further discuss the possibility.
