Northern Colorado

Northern Colorado Community Rights Network (NOCOCRN) is dedicated to raising political awareness of the need for community rights to defend our communities from harms coming from corporations acting against us, and changing the law to get community rights recognized as legitimate legal concepts.

About

Northern Colorado Community Rights Network was created August 30, 2016. We were formally Windsor Community Rights but we felt we needed to expand . We cover Weld and Larimer Counties, in particular Windsor, Fort Collins, Loveland, Timnath, Severance and Greeley.  Our mission is to liberate communities from unsustainable practices by enacting local bills of rights. We work to revoke the authority of the corporate minority to impose political, legal, and economic systems that endanger our human and natural communities.  Since our name change , we have sponsored a three day film festival at CSU, Trinity Lutheran and Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Collins. We have hosted several speaker forums. We have arranged tours of the Greeley Water facility, the Ethanol facility in Windsor and we are making positive connections with several agency heads. We will be meeting with the head of the National Hemp Association. . We have recruited the media to do stories regarding the ill effects of oil/gas development within our communities. We supported Loveland in their ballot initiative effort regarding oil/gas development. We have supported Greeley in multiple efforts regarding oil/gas development within residential zoning. We have supported Severance community rights with their effort to stop a refinery (gas station) from being developed within city limits. We support the town of Timnath as a land developer has recruited the town of Severance to annex property within Timnath’s growth boundary for the sole purpose of achieving higher density – that development is not within the standards of Timnath’s PUD (planed urban development). We supported and we are part of the Colorado campaign to establish state wide community bills of rights.
