Development Agreement


The Board of Adjustment and Board of Commissioners strongly suggest wind companies register wind farm latitutude/longitude sites on both the county website and the Colorado Agriculture Aviation Association (CAAA) website. Aviation buoys are required on the upper 1/3 portion of the towers in order for conditional use applications to be approved. Reflection tape is suggested.

Below is a list of locations (as of February 2009) for temporary meteorological towers in Cheyenne County:
