Well, actually, there are dozens, but the one that boggles my mind the most is this: In 1996, CU knowingly purchased 220 acres of unincorporated, open space-designated land on the South Boulder Creek floodplain. (They also purchased 88 adjacent acres designated low- and medium-density.) CU knew very well that this land was prone to flooding, rich in wildlife, and zoned for rural/open space uses. They bought it anyway.
