One Way to Fight a Porn Shop


Donate TodaySUPPORT LOCAL MEDIA-DONATE NOW!

Margie Patterson didn’t want a porn store in her beloved Allenspark. But Jeff and Vicky Mead owned an ATV shop and were looking into transforming the two-story lodge-style building into a pornography gallery when county officials told them they could no longer rent the four-wheelers. What resulted was a fight between Patterson and the Meads with all sorts of nasty name-calling funny enough to be mentioned in Locally Incorrect last issue. Instead of continuing the fight, Patterson formed a nonprofit and bought the building from the Meads for $428,000. It will be turned into a community center.

[What’s Next] Patterson’s group has some serious fundraising to do. She’s raised more than $60,000 already but will need up to $700,000 to transform
the property.
