Pueblo Representative Daneya Esgar says, "This is a proud day for all of Colorado, not just for Pueblo and the Lower Arkansas Valley, where the Pueblo chiles are grown." "Our local growers deserve recognition of their outstanding chiles. I'm just sorry they were out planting today and couldn't come to the signing." 

The plate is part of a statewide branding campaign to support the 16 family farms that make up the Pueblo Chile Growers Association.

    Another land swap is on the agenda for Colorado Springs City Council. Under the deal, the City would trade parcels with developer David Jenkins for land located just west of the train tracks near America the Beautiful Park. Swapping the land would allow C-DOT to put in a better design for new storm water infrastructure that is building as part of the I-25 Cimarron Interchange project.
