Denver: The Colorado Court of Appeals affirms that Montrose County followed the rules for issuing a conditional-use permit for the proposed Piñon Ridge uranium mill


From the Associated Press via The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel via The Colorado Springs Gazette:

The Telluride-based Sheep Mountain Alliance challenged the county’s process, saying the state’s open meetings law was violated and the county had abused its discretion in approving a permit.

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel ( ), the court on Thursday also upheld the ability of the mill to process an average 500 tons of ore per day.

The alliance has another lawsuit pending against the state Health Department, which the alliance says will address broader issues than the zoning case in Montrose County.
