Needed Daycare Center in Fort Collins Angers Adjacent Residents
It's a tough situation. This isn't what residents signed up for, but the city needs the center. Oh, boy.
If you've visited the Artisan Village of Jessup Farm -- maybe the new restaurant The Farmhouse, or the new brewery Jessup Farm Barrel House (I'm a big fan), you're familiar with the Bucking Horse subdivision in which the village resides.
There are a lot of homes in that area too. Homes that those folks paid a lot of money for. Homes that came with a 'promise' of how the development would go.
The Coloradoan has the story on how now that they're building a daycare center within Bucking Horse, many of those homeowners are pretty upset. When they purchased their homes, the developers said there would be a farm, not a commercial daycare center.
According to the Coloradoan, the developer did have plans for a farm, but those plans fell through. That's when Sunshine House Early Learning Center happened. They will be helping up to 175 kids at a time. The Coloradoan states that daycare is one of the critical for the city, though not many parents within Bucking Horse are all smiles about the new facility.
'Bait and Switch' is the term many of the residents are using.
You gotta feel for both the residents and for the people who'll benefit from the daycare.
