Crime Alert:

 

On May 27th we’ve had 3 reports of outgoing mail being stolen out mailboxes in South Woodmoor.  The thefts occurred between 8 pm on Monday and 6 am Tuesday.  All mail that was taken was placed in their mailbox for pick up and remnants of the mail were found open and discarded along the roadways.  The three incidents reported were near Caribou Drive and Smugglers Road, Early Star Drive, and Caribou Drive West.  These incidents were reported to the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. 

Please do not place any outgoing mail in your mailbox.  Take to the post office or place in a locked mail receptacle.  Please retrieve delivered mail as soon as possible to avoid having delivered mail stolen.  

 

Thank you,

Kevin Nielsen

Chief, Woodmoor Public Safety

Subject: RE: El Paso County Changes to regulations regarding group living arrangements in a residential setting for handicapped and disabled persons

I had previously sent you this email regarding proposed changes to the Land Development Code.  The El Paso County Planning Commission recommended several changes, including reducing the number of residents from 12 down to 8, as the threshold over which a special use would be required.  The proposed code changes will be scheduled for action by the Board of County Commissioners on June 17, 2014 at 9 am in Centennial Hall, at 200 S. Cascade.  The staff report for that hearing will be available June 13.

County staff is available to meet with interested people, preferably in a group format, between May 28th and the Board of County Commissioners hearing date of June 17.
