The weather <br />station is planned for construction at the Lucky Jack project site within the Crested Butte <br />Municipal Watershed. Please find enclosed a copy of the NOI and a letter of final approval from <br />DBMS. <br />We write to inquire if the Lucky Jack Project has also received a municipal watershed permit <br />from the Town of Crested Butte pursuant to the Crested Butte Municipal Watershed Ordinance <br />(Ordinance No. 6, Series 2008) and Section 31-15-707(1)(b) Colorado Revised Statutes?

If the Lucky <br />Jack Project has not, in fact, applied for a watershed permit High Country Citizens' Alliance <br />requests that the Town of Crested Butte initiate discussions with the Lucky Jack Project to assure <br />that this project is in compliance with the Crested Butte Municipal Watershed Ordinance. <br />We appreciate your time and attention on this matter.
