Windsor seeking public input on future of Jacoby Farm

The town of Windsor Parks, Recreation and Culture Department will host an open house to discuss the future of Jacoby Farm from 6-8 p.m. Sept. 14, at the Art and Heritage Center, 116 5th St.

Jacoby Farm is on 15th Street, north of the Greeley No. 2 Canal, and is home to Windsor's oldest building, the Halfway House, according to a news release from the town of Windsor. The Halfway House, built in 1873, served as a resting place for travelers between Greeley and Fort Collins, according to the release.

According to the release, the property is set to be conveyed to the town of Windsor, and the town is beginning plans for the site. Town staff is seeking input from the community on the site's future in order to develop a vision and identify desired amenities and improvements.

"Our staff will be at the open house to share more information about Jacoby Farm and to answer questions," Parks and Open Space manager Wade Willis said in the release. "Most importantly, we want to find out what our community envisions for this space."

Community members are also encouraged to take a brief online survey on the site's future. The survey will be available from Aug. 31 to Sept. 30 at http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/jacobyfarm.
