The Colorado Northwestern Community College Board allowed a proposal to transfer land to the Craig Rural Fire Protection District for a new training facility to fail during a special meeting tonight.

A motion was made to accept a resolution, which would have granted the fire district a nearly 15-acre parcel upon which it would have built a training tower and live fire simulator, or the first phase of a second station.

However, college board members declined to second the motion after about 15 people turned out to the meeting to oppose the land transfer.



“I’m not against the facility,” said Pete Pleasant, a longtime Moffat County resident. “I’m against the location proposed for the facility.”
