Dana and Sheryl Glasgow have a long history of conflict with their neighbors on Chaparral Road and El Paso County because they moved their Turf Master Industries landscaping and snow removal business to their home in defiance of zoning rules.
Here is a look at the neighborhood. In the center is the Glasgows’ 5-acre ranchette on Chaparral Road. They have a home, a horse barn, a long shed and another large building.
This is a close-up look at their property:
The fight has been going on more than 10 years. It has resulted in them being cited for contempt of court when they did not move their business from their home as ordered by the court. They appealed that contempt finding and lost again.

Here’s a link to a 2006 story with more detail about the battle between the Glasgows, El Paso County and their neighbors including Emerson Bowman, below in a 2006 file photo, on Chaparral Road.
Behind Bowman is the Glasgows’ home and a pink portable toilet they place in their front yard, illuminated by a spotlight at night, as a response to their neighbors’ complaints.
Here is a link to an appeal Glasgow filed trying to prevent another neighbor from being allowed to keep a barn where it was built 30 years ago even though it was too close to the property line.
Now, about the Barrett Road dispute between the LeVecks and the Hystads. Here is a look at the neighbors’ properties.
The LeVecks lost their bid to have Garth Hystad’s property declared a golf course, a recreational camp or an amusement center by El Paso County. A judge also tossed out the LeVecks’ request for a permanent restraining order. However, the judge called Hystad’s behavior “brutish” and admonished both sides for not working things out.
