Green Mountain Falls trustees vote to remove planning commission chairman, citing bullying and records violations

Pikes Peak Courier: In Green Mountain Falls, a place with a system of trails that attracts hikers from all over the region, the outdoor experience has become a source of conflict.

Last month, Mayor Jane Newberry and the board of trustees voted to disband the trails committee whose chair is Rocco Blasi. The termination was a result of the board’s temporary closing of the Mt. Dewey Trail after a resident, Clay Gafford, threatened a lawsuit against the town.

Gafford blamed the trails committee for building a section of the trail that crosses his 62-acre property near the summit. Newberry acknowledged that the board was unaware of the issue.
