Lone Tree's Tall Tales Ranch project moves on

Living facility for people with disabilities gets OK on site plan


Lone Tree City Council has approved a site improvement plan for a living and care facility for those with special needs.

Tall Tales Ranch received approval from council for its site improvement plan July 7. The milestone comes exactly six years since Tall Tales Ranch obtained nonprofit status, according to a news release sent July 11.

Founder Susan Mooney thanked the building committee board members and the group’s site improvement plan team.

“We have many things to celebrate and to be grateful for, in spite of these strange times we are all living in,” Mooney stated. “Like any devoted family member, you have been there to change diapers, dry tears, cheerlead and offer your hand as our baby learned to walk.”

Tall Tales Ranch is poised to be a safe, comfortable and independent place for people with disabilities to live, learn and interact with each other, supporters said.

Mooney began a fundraising campaign in January to raise $12 million for the project. Mooney hopes the project will break ground by 2022.
