Timnath Community Park
If the Town of Timnath makes the news, you’ll find it here!
CLOSE Up-and-coming Timnath took another step forward Tuesday when it welcomed its quickly growing community to their new Town Center. The new Town Center, located at 4750 Signal Tree Drive in Timnath, opened to the public Tuesday. The town, home to approximately 4,500 people, outgrew its former facilities and expects to continue to grow.
CLOSE Eldon Malmstrom stood behind a podium Friday, looking out at a crowd of adults packed into Riffenburgh Elementary School’s library. A sea of faces – some former students, some former colleagues – looked back at him. “I taught here for 40 years,” Malmstrom said. “I have no regrets.”
CLOSE For those wondering when the Harmony Road headache commute east of Interstate 25 will end, there is good news and bad news. The good news is Timnath is scheduled to wrap up its portion of expansion work on the busy road by mid-August. The bad news is Windsor just started its portion of the road.
Teddy Parker-Renga, Department of Natural Resources LOVELAND, Colo. – The Larimer County Parks Advisory Board will meet May 8, 2018, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. in the Lake Loveland Room of the Larimer County Courthouse, 200 W. […]
CLOSE Cellular service in Timnath – provided by Verizon Wireless in particular – has residents fed up. And the town council has taken notice. The town is gathering residents’ experiences following complaints of dropped calls and poor coverage. As the petition website notes, cell phones have moved from luxury to standard items, making spotty service into a bigger issue than just inconvenience.
CLOSE Fresh and artisan foods are coming to Timnath. A new farmers market will be hosted from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday outside the Colorado Feed & Grain building at 4138 Main St. More than 30 vendors are scheduled to set up shop.
The supply drive will go until Friday.
Last month in this space we identified three potential answers to the burning question of how much-needed housing inventory will be generated for Northern Colorado in the year ahead.
TIMNATH – Fort Collins-based The Neenan Co. is set to break ground in April on The Plaza at Riverbend, a mixed-use retail center in Timnath. Neenan, the project’s developer and design-builder, will sell the retail and office condos instead of leasing them as commercial space. The cost of the project was not disclosed.
CLOSE Timnath voters will get the opportunity to weigh in on their local candidates for office this month. The town will mail registered voters ballots this week for the April 3 election to fill two Town Council seats. The League of Women Voters will be hosting a candidate forum from 7-9 p.m.
CLOSE If there is one thing that seemingly everyone can and does agree upon, it’s that Interstate 25 in Northern Colorado is a mess. Aging infrastructure, constant congestion and sketchy driver behavior combine to make for one unpleasant experience. Things are about to change for the better.
CLOSE Some might think Timnath officials are sending a message to town voters in response to their rejection of a proposed sales tax increase in the November election: If you don’t pay, you can’t play.
CLOSE Chick-fil-A, Timnath’s newest fast-food restaurant, will open Jan. 11 across from Costco on Harmony Road. This will be the second Chick-fil-A in the Fort Collins area. The other is at the southwest corner of Horsetooth Road and South College Avenue. Chick-fil-A will give out free food for a year to 100 people during the opening.
CLOSE For the second time in two years, Timnath residents said no to higher sales taxes to help pay for large infrastructure improvements. Had it passed, the sales tax would have increased from 3 percent to 4.3 percent and the sales tax on food purchased for home consumption would have jumped from 2.25 percent to 3.45 percent.
CLOSE Timnath will try again to raise its sales tax to help pay for $84 million in infrastructure improvements, including widening Harmony Road and for parks, trails and a new town hall. If passed during the Nov.
It’s going to be a busy day on Saturday, October 7, in Timnath. In the morning, at 9am, runners, joggers, and walkers will follow a scenic trail run through the rolling hills of the Timnath country side. The event finishes at the Taste in Timnath Fall Festival.
CLOSE Timnath Community Park Series 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Timnath Community Park, 5500 Summerfields Parkway, Timnath. The Timnath Community Park Concert Series will feature live old school funk and R&B music from Denver-based The Jakarta Band. There will also be delicious options from local food trucks.
CLOSE Timnath will be joining the craft beer party this fall. Craig Miller, a resident of the growing town just east of Fort Collins, is planning to open Timnath Beerwerks in November out of the Colorado Feed & Grain Building at 4138 Main St. It will be the 135-year-old town’s first brewery.
CLOSE In the heat of summer, there’s nothing like settling on a picnic blanket and watching fireworks light up the night sky. With the Fourth of July quickly approaching, it’s time to plan your Independence Day. Do you want to spend your day hitting golf balls, running a race, watching a parade or enjoying an old-fashioned afternoon on the lawn of a historic home?
CLOSE If Rocky Mountain Sports Park opens next year, sports fans and athletes will be joining commuters driving an increasingly busy Harmony Road north of Windsor. Developers for the project announced plans Tuesday for the $225 million park on a 413-acre Windsor site at the intersection of Colorado Highway 257 and Weld County Road 74 (Harmony Road in Fort Collins).
TIMNATH – A memorial plaque in honor of Glen E. Bryant was presented to officials in the Marine’s birth town on Tuesday, 99 years after he died in the final battle of World War I.
CLOSE Before acquiring its name, the town of Timnath was variously labeled Wheatland and the Sherwood District. Not formally established until 1882, the small community east of Fort Collins had a patchwork of settlements in the area, including the Sherwood brothers’ ranch and the Strauss homestead.
It’s a step up from that temporary modular trailer. Poudre Fire Authority’s Station No. 8 is a mansion compared to the aged brick building that once served as the staging area for firefighters whose coverage area centered on Timnath and stretched to east Fort Collins.
CLOSE A squabble over disputed territory is sending Severance and Timnath into court and back to dusty archives from the 1800s. It may sound like a feud from the Old West where property owners tangled over range rights and fence lines. But this is a 21st-century problem between two towns hoping to stake their claim to the same land.
CLOSE A fire near Timnath Reservoir burned about 17 acres and threatened two homes Friday afternoon. Someone reported the grass fire shortly after 1 p.m., Poudre Fire Authority spokeswoman Madeline Noblett said. The fire was in an open grassy field with pockets of cottonwood and evergreen trees.
CLOSE Editor’s note: This story has been corrected to reflect PSD’s receipt of marijuana tax revenues. Education for students in grades K-12 comes with a significant price tag in Colorado. Across the state on Nov. 8, voters will be asked to decide on roughly $4 billion in mills and bonds for everything from new schools to raises for teachers.
CLOSE SEVERANCE – Timnath officials are weighing their options after the Severance Town Board on Monday annexed 270 acres that Timnath has had in its sights for nearly a decade. Buffalo Creek, part of Timnath’s growth management area for nine years, lies just east of the divide between Larimer and Weld counties at the southeast corner of Weld County roads 13 and 78.
CLOSE UPDATE 1:45 p.m.: Citing lack of property damage, hazmat incident or injuries, “this went as best as a train derailment could go,” Madeline Noblett, PFA PIO, said. UPDATE 1:28 p.m.: A neighbor (seemingly the only one who heard anything) said train derailment was a series of loud bangs that lasted 5 seconds.
Home of the week: Historic Timnath hotel
CLOSE Timnath voters stuck with their current town council Tuesday during the town’s municipal election. Jill Grossman-Belisle coasted to victory Tuesday in the uncontested race for mayor. Wins for incumbent councilmen Bill Neal and Paul Steinway were more of an upstream battle. Four candidates faced off Tuesday for two open seats on the Timnath Town Council.
CLOSE The rapidly growing town of Timnath is one step closer to getting a new fire station after Poudre Fire Authority broke ground Tuesday on Station No. 8. The 15,449-square-foot station is expected to open in December. Overall construction is estimated to cost $5.6 million, PFA battalion chief Holger Durre said Tuesday.
