Moving Forward Together

The Glenwood Springs City Council approved the “Glenwood: Moving Forward Together” Project – U.S. EPA Brownfields Area-Wide Plan on February 21, 2019.

Using funding from an EPA grant, the City developed the Area Wide Plan 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 developed 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 included 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.
