Brighton, Adams County preserve nearly 80 acres of farmland from development


For those yearn­ing for a bit more undis­turbed acreage in a fast-grow­ing metro area, look to the north.

Brighton and Adams Coun­ty teamed up with The Con­ser­va­tion Fund this week to pre­serve 79 acres of farm­land along 144th Avenue and Sable Boule­vard, just south of Brighton, in a tra­di­tion­al­ly agri­cul­tur­al area recent­ly des­ig­nat­ed as His­toric Splen­did Val­ley.

The city and coun­ty used $2.5 mil­lion in Adams Coun­ty open space sales tax rev­enue and Great Out­doors Col­orado mon­ey to place a con­ser­va­tion ease­ment on the land, ensur­ing it remains agri­cul­tur­al and free from devel­op­ment.

“The preser­va­tion of this area fur­thers the mis­sion of His­toric Splen­did Val­ley to pro­tect one of the state’s last remain­ing areas of urban agri­cul­tur­al land with avail­able water rights to ensure that food pro­duc­tion can con­tin­ue for the ben­e­fit of the local com­mu­ni­ty and the region,” Adams Coun­ty said in a press release this week.

The farm is locat­ed in Denver’s north­ern sub­urbs and is sur­round­ed on all sides by an explo­sion in sin­gle-fam­i­ly sub­di­vi­sions and retail out­lets to serve a grow­ing pop­u­la­tion.

The farm had been owned by the Morim­it­su fam­i­ly since 1939. Petroc­co Farms leased it from the fam­i­ly before recent­ly pur­chas­ing it. Petroc­co grows cab­bage, onions, leafy greens and sweet corn at the farm.

This week’s deal brings the total acreage pre­served in the His­toric Splen­did Val­ley so far to 444 acres. That includes both pri­vate­ly owned land oper­at­ing under agri­cul­tur­al con­ser­va­tion ease­ments and land direct­ly owned by Adams Coun­ty or Brighton, which places it under agri­cul­tur­al preser­va­tion.
