Youth, Equine and Ag Working Group

On February 25, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners gave direction to staff to explore ways to preserve youth, equine and agricultural activities in Jefferson County.  

Staff immediately started working on putting together plans to create a community-based group of people interested in Jeffco’s youth, equine and agricultural activities. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 those plans were put on hold.  

As of June 2020, staff resumed efforts and have finalized plans regarding establishing, defining duties and responsibilities of the community-based working group.
