Huh, a Ft Collins firm? There wasn't anyone local?

Yeah there was a team lead by a great local Boulder landscape firm that sent in a proposal and it was judged closely with the other two applications. In the end the team lead by BHA (of Ft collins) won, but 5 of the consultants on that team are local boulder companies (IMBA, OZ, JVA, DREXEL BARREL, BOULDER ENGINEERING).
and really, Ft. Collins is "local."
