Xcel has filed a complaint with the Weld County District Court in reference to the denial of the Special Use Permit by the Board of Trustees during the March 17 meeting. Since the meeting, Xcel has been evaluating paths forward on the project and is proceeding with litigation.
Interim Town Manager Wesley LaVanchy stated, “After the Board of Trustee’s decision, we anticipated Xcel would regroup to discuss options. We knew that legal action was one of those options.” The Town of Eaton is examining the merits of the claim and looking for viable paths forward.
The Town of Eaton will continue to work on behalf of residents, business owners, and community members as we work through this process.
