OURAY  -  If the Colorado Reappointment Commission’s new House district plan receives final approval from Colorado Supreme Court later this year, San Miguel County will be split in half, with the east end and Ouray County joining Durango in House District 59. At the same time, the west end of San Miguel County and Cortez will join the city of Montrose in District 58. According to The Watch this proposed change is combining mountain communities in one district rural farming towns in the other.  Meanwhile both District Reps. Don Coram and  J. Paul Brown  said that the plan had taken them by surprise and both suggested that the citizens affected by the changes didn’t have time enough to voice their concerns on the plan.
