Windsor Seeking Public Feedback on the Future of Jacoby Farm September 14

Halfway House

The Town of Windsor Parks, Recreation & Culture Department will hold an open house to discuss the future of Jacoby Farm from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14, at the Art & Heritage Center.

Jacoby Farm is located on 15th Street, north of the Greeley No. 2 Canal, and is home to Windsor’s oldest building, the Halfway House. Built in 1873, the Halfway House served as a resting place for travelers between Greeley and Fort Collins.

The property is set to be conveyed to the Town of Windsor, and the town is beginning plans for the site.  Town staff is seeking input from the community on the site’s future in order to develop a vision and identify desired amenities and improvements.

“Our staff will be at the open house to share more information about Jacoby Farm and to answer questions,” said Parks and Open Space Manager Wade Willis. “Most importantly, we want to find out what our community envisions for this space.”

Community members are also encouraged to take a brief online survey on the site’s future. The survey will be available from August 31 to September 30 at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/jacobyfarm.

The Jacoby Farm site is currently private property and does not belong to the Town of Windsor. The town asks that individuals interested in the park master planning process be respectful of the current landowners and stay off of the private property.

The Art & Heritage Center is located at 116 5th Street.
