The City of Glenwood Springs is excited to announce that the “Glenwood: Moving Forward Together” Project – the U.S. EPA Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Effort is underway.
Using funding from an EPA grant, the City is creating a strategy to tie together the Confluence Redevelopment, 6th Street Corridor Master Plan, 7th Street Beautification project and Two Rivers Park. Together with expert consultants and community stakeholders, the City will use this grant to develop an implementation plan to revitalize the brownfields located along the Colorado and Roaring Fork Rivers in the City’s core, including a 5-acre site where the City’s decommissioned wastewater treatment plant is located. The planning area covered by the grant also includes the 5-acre CDOT Engineering and Maintenance site across Devereux Road from Two Rivers Park and the 27.4-acre Holly Quarry site near the Iron Mountain Hot Springs/Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.
