Four years ago, Montrose County re-platted Redvale without the knowledge of the owners of the lands that were re-platted, they moved everybody’s property lines. Jennifer found out when someone bought land next door to them and it was surveyed to be 20 feet onto her property and in the middle of her kitchen. So the new land owner, took his right and put in a new mobile home and wanted to fence his yard. So, they moved their home 20 feet back to avoid the fine. Right after they moved the house, Montrose County came and said they need a foundation under the house and pulled the power box so they no longer have power, right before winter. She lost 20 feet in, the length of her property line, of land with no explanation or recourse and then they do this!
Jennifer still has rabbits, pigs, horses, cows and chickens on her property and was working on getting the foundation, but cannot live on the property during the winter, even a mild one. She is going to have to now pay rent in Nucla and drive to Redvale to feed and water, but cannot watch them at night to keep them protected. Whereas their home is paid for and she planned to use the money she is earning to put in a foundation, now she has to pay rent and try to save money to put in the foundation.
This latest event has Jennifer ready to throw in the towel. She needs our help to get her survey completed and her foundation poured. She needs our help so she can get back on her feet to help the 4H kids and raise her animals and help the community again.
She needs to survey the property to find out her new property line, move her trailer, pour a foundation, move the trailer back on to the foundation and tie it down, and reset the electrical and plumbing plus permitting. This has been estimated at $10,000.
