County Offices, Courts and the Landfill will be closed Monday, May 25 in observance of Memorial Day. Critical services at Larimer County will not be disrupted by this closure.
Each fall, the Larimer County Environmental Advisory Board and the Larimer County Commissioners recognize environmental efforts of county residents, businesses, organizations and/or agencies by awarding the Environmental Stewardship Awards.
The board looks for individual or group activities that are innovative and proactive, and that demonstrate exceptional effort and concern for the stewardship of the environment. Projects can be either completed one-time efforts or ongoing activities. Both types will be judged on their degree of difficulty and the results they achieve. The Environmental Advisory Board solicits nominations in the summer, reviews them and makes recommendations for awards to the Larimer County Commissioners. A field visit or interview by the advisory board or county commissioners may be conducted prior to making the final awards decision.
Nomination can come from those familiar with the nominee, but self nominations will also be accepted. To be eligible, a project or activity should be completed in 2014, or be a multi-year and on-going project. Nominations must be received no later than September 19, 2014 in the Larimer County Commissioners' Office, 200 W. Oak St., Fort Collins. Only one entry per nominee will be accepted.
