Wheat Ridge News in a Hurry
Trail work at Crown Hill Park, 9307 W. 26th Ave., is nearing completion, but all other construction at the park has been put on hold.
The other elements planned to be constructed this year are restroom and fitness station replacements, a shade structure and nature play areas. These projects are postponed pending additional citizen input.
To gather additional citizen input, Jefferson County Open Space is providing interested residents with information on the projects and a survey.
To receive information and a survey, residents need to email email@example.com and provide open space with their contact information. Surveys will be sent a week to 10 days after the email is received.
Surveys will be available until the end of February.
Once the surveys are compiled, the feedback will be incorporated into a final plan and presented during a community meeting in March.
