From The Pueblo Chieftain (Chris Woodka):

The board is concerned that the Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District is contemplating diverting money from the Corridor Master Plan and concentrating more on land-use review rather than completing projects to improve Fountain Creek. “If you aren’t seeing any progress, you won’t have people going forward with you,” said Leroy Mauch, the Lower Ark board member who also sits on the Fountain Creek board…

Under an intergovernmental agreement, the district is using $100,000 annually from Colorado Springs Utilities and the Lower Ark district to fund its activities. Those two sources are also funding the master plan at $200,000 annually. Funding ends this year. The district has no other source of funding until at least 2016, when Colorado Springs would pay the balance of $50 million pledged to the district under conditions of the Pueblo County 1041 permit for the Southern Delivery System…

The district board will look at the Lower Ark’s response at its next meeting, 1 p.m. Jan. 28 at Fountain City Hall, said Pueblo County Commissioner Jeff Chostner, chairman of the Fountain Creek board.
