The Surface Development Notification Act (CRS §§ 24-65.5-103 et seq.)

In addition, as the local government considering the application for development, Xcel Energy (the applicant) is providing notice to you pursuant to the Act confirming that Xcel Energy sent notice of the public hearing on the 1041 Application to the identified mineral estate owners under the proposed location of the new Canal Crossing Substation (a property which is a subject of the 1041 Application). The location of the property for the Canal Crossing Substation that is a subject of the hearing on the 1041 Application is shown on the enclosed map and the and legal description is as follows:
A list containing the names and addresses of the mineral estate owners or lessees to whom notices were sent pursuant to the Act is provided as Attachment 1. Per Section 2-206(1)(c) of the Morgan County Guidelines and Regulations for Areas and Activities of State Interest, the Board of County Commissioners may refer the 1041 Application to mineral interest holders for comment in the case of projects to be constructed more than ten feet below the surface, excluding foundation structures for aboveground transmission lines. Xcel Energy hopes these materials and information assist the County’s review of the 1041 Application.
