Boulder County Court Finds in Erie’s Favor

Today the Boulder County Court issued an Order granting the Town of Erie’s Motion to Dismiss the City of Lafayette’s Petition in condemnation of 22 acres of Town-owned property at Nine Mile Corner.

The Court found that: “…Lafayette does not have a public purpose in bringing the Petition in condemnation. The articulated need of acquiring open space for the purpose of creating a community buffer between Lafayette and Erie is inconsistent with Lafayette’s actions in development of Hwy. 287 corridor. Instead, Lafayette’s actions are more closely aligned with a previously articulated goal to ensure that Erie does not engage in commercial development on Nine Mile Corner.”

“The testimony about how Petitioner arrived at this size designation is near ludicrous.”

“The absence of good faith bars Petitioner’s power to acquire Respondents’ property.”

The Town of Erie appreciates the Court’s thoughtful and careful consideration of the facts and believe the correct decision was made.
