Statutory Authority 43-1-210.5 C.R.S.
Description of Subjects/Issues Rules govern the permitting process which allows private individuals to harvest native grassees on state highway rights-of-way
Purpose/Objective of Rule The specific authority to promulgate these Rules is provided to the Department of Transportation by § 43-1-210.5, C.R.S. (2011). These Rules allow persons, firms or corporations that own land adjacent to State Highway Rights-of-Way to obtain a Permit from the Department so that such persons may use Rights-of-Way for Harvesting of native grasses and hay. The Rules Governing Harvesting of Native Grasses within State Highway Rights-of-Way were adopted in April 2003. The rationale for amending the Rules is based on the fact that very few permits were requested since the time the Rules went into effect. The Department, in keeping with the Governor’s initiative to lessen regulations where possible, is amending the Rules to provide greater opportunity for Harvesting on Colorado’s Rights-of-Way, by making the requirements less restrictive, and by expanding the area that may be harvested with a single Permit.
