Streetscaping Workshop for Hwy. 285 through Town

With the increase in population and tourism in Colorado, Saguache is experiencing a steady increase in traffic along the Highway 285 corridor in town. Semi-trucks, travel trailers, and tourists are pouring through this 35-mph section of highway through town. Unfortunately, this section of road experiences loud truck noise and many believe it is unsafe for pedestrians, cyclist, and motorist alike. The shoulder is arched and littered with gravel. This stretch of road is also unsightly with no sidewalks, bike paths, or attractive landscaping.

Fortunately, this is not uncommon for many of Colorado’s small rural communities and there are resources available to help communities address these issues. As such, two Saguache County non-profits; ScSEED and the Saguache Chamber of Commerce have united to bring Community Builders, a non-profit rural consulting firm, to town on May 10th to conduct a FREE half-day workshop to learn how we can strike a balance among the many demands for Hwy. 285 through town. This workshop is for anyone who is interesting in making this stretch of roadway through our town better. Attendance is limited, so please, sign up now. Register at https://tinyurl.com/y2bcna7g. RSVP by May1st.

 The workshop is on Friday, May 10th, from 9:30 to 2PM. Located at the Saguache County Road & Bridge Building, 305 3rd. St., Saguache, CO. Call 719-322-7298 if you have any questions.
