Chair Rennels stated that she, several other county employees and elected representatives visited Bend, OR to review their pilot program regarding the juvenile justice system. The community, Chair Rennels continued, focuses on the children and making sure they don't "fall through the cracks" of the justice system. Chair Rennels also noted that she and Mr. Lancaster toured the Deschutes County fairgrounds and gathered information for a "win win" situation for the fairground project/ the management of the facility/ and the citizens so as not to reinvent the wheel with the Larimer County fairgrounds.

Chair Rennels stated that letters have been received from the State regarding designation of the North Poudre Natural Area and Sandcreek area, and asked if public hearings are required. Mr. Lancaster stated that he would review these letters and bring them back to the Board next week.
