April 10-16 National Crime Victims' Rights Week
Each year 20 million Americans are victims of crime.  To reaffirm Jefferson County's commitment to respect and enforce victims' rights, the Board of County Commissioners, at its April 12 hearing, proclaimed April 10-16 as National Crime Victims' Rights Week in Jefferson County.


According to the proclamation, National Crime Victims' Week provides an opportunity for all of us to help reshape the future for victims by honoring the past and reflecting on hard-won victories. It is important to join together to find better treatment for victims and help them overcome the harm caused by crime.

Airport Master Plan Approved

At its April 12 public hearing, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport's Master Plan update and the Airport Layout Plan.Airplane


In 2008, the airport began the process of updating its Master Plan.  The existing plan was from 2000 and used data from 1999.  Both the Master Plan and the Layout Plan describe the infrastructure needs to meet projected future aviation demands and provides the framework needed to guide development at the airport.  The plans consider the potential environmental, financial and socioeconomic impacts, while meeting all the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) facility requirements.


Also, the Airport Layout Plan provides a guideline for the airport to assure that development maintains airport design standards and safety requirements and is necessary to receive federal and state financial assistance.


Funding for the Master Plan update comes from three sources. In May 2008, the BCC approved a grant for $250,000 from the Colorado Department of Transportation - Aeronautics Division (CDOT), $212,800 was provided by the FAA restricted funds the airport acquired from CDOT's condemnation of airport land for a right-of-way, which left $62,500 to be provided by the county.
