Commissioners Allow Special Use for Southfork Property

Written by on June 5, 2019

Some South Fork residents are concerned that a new use for an existing property could have a negative impact.

Park County Commissioners held a public hearing two weeks ago regarding a Special Use Permit application on the South Fork.   Mark and Sarah Squire bought the property on Davis Draw Road with plans to use the 3-bedroom house as a base for their Will’s Hope mentor program for young adults with special needs.

Yesterday, the commissioners voted 3-to-1 to approve a limited Special Use Permit.  Attorney Colin Simpson represented some of the residents.

The Park County Commissioners approved the permit with a limitation of no more than nine occupants at the facility at a time, and with no approval for any new construction to be done.
