FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – Larimer County officials approved new campsites at Horsetooth Reservoir west of Fort Collins over objections from nearby residents worried about increased noise and blocked views.

Larimer County commissioners gave the go-ahead to nine new campsites Tuesday. The Loveland Reporter-Herald reports that the commissioners acknowledged residents’ concerns but said officials will plant trees and landscaping to provide a buffer between the new sites and the residents.

The campground where the new sites will be built currently has 72 campsites.

Residents objecting to the plan gathered 100 signatures opposing the project.
