Let’s Get Colfax Improvements Built: Speak Up Now!
You recently helped the Colfax Collaborative secure $500,000 in 2017 city funding to design streetscape and safety improvements along the corridor. However, this is only the beginning. General obligation (GO) bond funding is needed to get the improvements built. There are many more projects than dollars to fund them and we need your support now more than ever.
You can help get Colfax on the 2017 bond list by providing input at upcoming meetings to discuss GO Bond priorities. Here’s why we believe Colfax deserves funding: Great Cities have Great Main Streets: We should too! Please speak up and support your main street at one of the following meetings:
Tuesday, November 15, 6-7:30 p.m: Montbello Campus, 5000 Crown Blvd.
Thursday, November 17, 6-7:30 p.m: Teller Elementary School, 1150 Garfield St.
Tuesday, November 29, 6-7:30 p.m.: Corky Gonzales Library, 1498 Irving St.
Thursday, December 1, 6-7:30 p.m.: Lincoln High School, 2285 S. Federal Blvd.
Tuesday, December 6, 6-7:30 p.m.: Bruce Randolph School, 3955 Steele St.
Thursday, December 8, 6-7:30 p.m.: South High School, 1700 E. Louisiana Ave.
In addition to the community meetings, you can show your support with comment cards at Denver Public Libraries and recreation centers across the city until December 21, 2016. Or email your thoughts to 2017GOBond@denvergov.org.
