Colorado is a past, present and future source of uranium. Developer Dan Banner hopes that the state will become a bigger consumer of the fuel to generate electricity. Here’s a report from Peter Strescino writing for The Pueblo Chieftain. From the article:

After a passionate almost seven-hour meeting which included an executive session, the commission lodged identical 5-3 votes to change a 24,000 acre site south of Grape Road and east of Huerfano Road from agrucultural zoning to that of a planned unit development and give developer Don Banner some leeway in variances and waivers for the initial part of the process. The commissioners will hear Banner’s plans on March 15. He will make a presentation to the Pueblo Area Council of Governments on Thursday. Before a packed house at the Pueblo County Conference Room, Banner laid plans to find a developer for a “clean energy park,” he said will include solar, wind and geothermal energy producing outlets as well as a nuclear plant.
