Sustainable Infrastructure Plan Prioritized Projects

You are invited to the 6th in a series of Shooks Run Plan Public Workshops:

Tues., Aug. 8, 2017 | 5 – 7 p.m. | Presentation at 5:30 p.m.
First Presbyterian Church Weber Street Center, 105 N. Weber, Colorado Springs, 80903
(Free parking lot just north of the building)

During the last public meeting, the community reviewed the draft Facilities Master Plan (FMP) for the 4-mile Shooks Run corridor detailing improvements and changes to streets, bridges, drainage infrastructure, stream/trail, and various destination elements along the corridor, to name a few.  The Mayor, City Council , and City Staff subsequently endorsed the FMP.  A draft of the companion Sustainable Infrastructure Plan (SIP), a prioritized grouping of projects and associated cost estimates, is now ready for public review.  You are invited to provide feedback to the Draft SIP during Public Meeting #6.

The long-term prioritized Shooks Run Plan will enable the City to make strategic decisions on allocation of funds in a fiscally responsible manner to maximize improvements and provide the City input on the funding needed to fulfill the community-desired vision for Shooks Run over the next 50 years.

City Council Comments about Envision Shooks Run:

"Shooks Run is a City asset and a critical part of our community. This is critical for rebuilding our infrastructure especially in this part of town. We need to treat it right.  This is exactly the kind of thing we should be doing to help bring the City together. The ‘Envision Shooks Run’ plan is exciting and forward thinking with tremendous potential for the City. It addresses critical improvements to an aging infrastructure, redevelopment plans, and greenway improvements."

"The Facilities Master Plan is practical and the most visionary document the City has ever produced. It's comprehensive, detailed, and inclusive through an impressive public process. It includes all relevant City departments and compliments other planning efforts. It addresses a lot of the issues brought up by the public."

"It took a lot of work from a lot of people to produce the ‘Envision Shooks Run’ Facilities Master Plan. It will provide direction and help define the City for many years to come."

"The plan affects the core of our downtown area.  Every successful city will say that a strong core is critically important to overall vibrancy of a City. This plan supports the mission of improving our downtown area."

"The only thing that would make this plan even better is if we were in a position to move up the timeline and get it implemented sooner."
