COMPLETE STREETS :: Take Back the Boulevard - Eagle Rock
Many of you know, last year I worked with TERA to launch the "Take Back the Boulevard" initiative in Eagle Rock in order to bring about changes to Colorado Boulevard that seek to make it a safer, calmer, and a more vibrant corridor in the community.
The better part of the past year has been spent assembling a steering committee that spans the various active organizations in Eagle Rock, putting together a strategic plan for the next year, garnering support from the Council District, raising preliminary funds, and contracting with an urban planning firm to assist in the initiative.
Now that all of these are in place, we have scheduled our first community outreach meeting. At this meeting we would like to gather as much input from the community as possible before any design work is done. I have attached an invite for the first community meeting and a general information brochure about the initiative.
Please send this along to all of your friends and colleagues in Eagle Rock. It is important that we hear from the community about their concerns and desires for Colorado Boulevard, and so we are hoping to reach as many people as possible.
Thank you for your help, and let me know if you have any questions.
