Hostetter served Lower Blue well

Karn Stiegelmeier
executive director
Friends of the Lower Blue River

We extend our thanks to Joe Hostetter for his many years of steadfast commitment to the Lower Blue River Valley.

As chairman of the Lower Blue Planning Commission and as an individual, Joe worked diligently to preserve the rural and agricultural character of the Lower Blue River Valley.

Yet, he worked with equal diligence to protect private property rights of landowners.

Joe often found himself involved in controversial issues in the Lower Blue. He did not waiver, sidestep or retreat. He faced controversial issues with fortitude and resolve to find an equitable solution for all.

The Lower Blue River Valley has the benefits of the successful plans, projects and preservation due to Joe’s relentless efforts and leadership on various committees, projects and planning sessions.
