[ARCHIVED] City Awarded $200,000 EPA Brownfield Area-Wide Planning Grant

The City of Glenwood Springs is pleased to announce that the City is one of 19 recipients of an EPA Brownfield Area-Wide Planning Grant, announced by the EPA on Jan. 5, 2017.

The $200,000 grant will allow the City to create 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.

The work will include an assessment of existing infrastructure assets and needed infrastructure upgrades to support intended reuses at the sites, including new mixed-use development, parking, and housing.

The City will be working with the Downtown Development Authority (DDA), Chamber Resort Association, Community Builders, Colorado Brownfields Partnership, Colorado Mountain College, GlenX and Super School, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, and other stakeholders during the planning process.
