Statement Regarding Fencing Within Easement on Parcel A
We wanted to provide some clarification on the information being shared about a fence that is being constructed on a private easement within an area of the public open space located at the north end of the North Hogback. This area is commonly referred to as Parcel A and is owned by Jefferson County. Long before Jefferson County took ownership of Parcel A, a court order imposed a permanent, non-exclusive easement across Parcel A for a private landowner to access the landowner’s property. While KCRMD leases Parcel A from Jefferson County, and it is managed by the Master Association’s Open Space Rangers, KCRMD has no say as to what the landowner can do within the easement. That is between Jefferson County and the landowner. That said, KCRMD’s staff has confirmed that the fence will not prohibit or impede use of Parcel A by residents or the Rangers for management purposes as access points through the fence will be provided. If you have questions, please contact Melissa Daruna with KCRMD at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-979-1876, ext. 136.
