and the Evergreen Legacy Fund – Dedicated to preserving the Legacy of Greater Evergreen

Some Website Adjustments June 17, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — Greater DEED @ 8:03 am

As we continue in our efforts to share information about the Evergreen LID with the community, we will be making some adjustments to our website while we build an entirely new site that will host Frequently Asked Questions, Videos and other great content. In the meantime, Evergreenlegacyfund.org, Evergreenlegacyfund.com and Evergreenlegacyfund.net will all redirect to this site: greaterdeed.wordpress.com.

We apologize for anyone being directed to the old WordPress site if you have an old link from a previous post or you had saved it in your “favorites” or “history” folders for quick access – it will say that the authors took the site down. We didn’t…we just changed the URL. Thanks for your patience while we get all the technical stuff worked out!

Lake Trail Ribbon Cutting June 3rd! May 22, 2015

Filed under: Uncategorized — Greater DEED @ 3:27 am

Join us for the Connector Trail Celebration!

Almost done. Come celebrate June 3!

The long-awaited Evergreen Lake Connector Trail is almost finished, and Evergreen Park & Recreation District (EPRD) And the Downtown Evergreen Economic District (DEED) would like you to join us in celebrating with a Community Walk from downtown to Evergreen Lake House on Wednesday, June 3, 2015. We’ll finish up by cutting the ribbon during the season’s first Evergreen Lake Summer Concert.

Parents, bring your kids and strollers! Wheelchair and walker users, join the fun! This is our chance to celebrate that Evergreen finally has an accessible lake trail!

Start Walking at Beau Jo’s
The walk starts at 5:30 PM in the parking lot in front of Beau Jo’s Pizza in downtown Evergreen. Following a short ceremony recognizing the people and organizations that made the project a reality, we will take to the trail, crossing the new 200-foot sloped bridge on our newly accessible way to Evergreen Lake House. The walk is about three-quarters of a mile long.

Cut the Ribbon at Evergreen Lake House
Officials will cut the ribbon for the new Connector Trail at the Summer Concert at Evergreen Lake House at 6:15 PM. Please stay and enjoy the concert, featuring the rock band Egg Planet, which ends at 9 PM. Shuttle buses will be available to return walkers to their cars downtown, or they can walk back on the accessible trail.

Lake Trail Invite

The Connector Trail project was funded by a $250,000 grant from Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) and a $30,000 contribution from the Evergreen Legacy Fund (ELF), plus in-kind donations of services and material. The Legacy Fund is derived from a voluntary 1 percent donation on sales of products and services at businesses to support infrastructure.

Work Session For Mountain Area Master Plan Update (Revised 3/24/15) at 6:00 at Bergen Fire Station March 14, 2015

This coming Tuesday 3/24/15 at 6:00 PM at the Bergen fire station, Jefferson County is hosting a working session for the Downtown Evergreen Activity Center as a part of their rewrite of the Evergreen Area Master Plan. They update the master plan roughly every 10 years and it is informed directly by this public process. This is a rare and critical opportunity to have our voices heard and we should try to encourage as many people as possible who have a vested interest in downtown to attend and participate in this important public process. I have attended other activity center working sessions and they are well attended, but not necessarily representative of the full spectrum of needs in our comnunity.  We need to make sure we have representation so we can make our interests known. Issues that we specifically have to face in downtown is CDOT right-of-way issues, problematic building setbacks, and an overall zoning that is inconsistent with the size and shape of parcels that we have downtown (which have existed long before the Jefferson County planning and zoning department existed). Encouraging better vehicular and pedestrian access (sidewalks) and parking are obviously significant objectives. This process does not create a plan to construct anything per se but it does create a guideline that heavily influences all future development applications in the area. It would be great if we could have as many folks from downtown attend as possible. Please help spread this information to the downtown community so they can attend and participate. The workshop is well organized and you don’t need to be an expert, or even vaguely knowledgeable in planning or development to participate. Jeffco has outlined the objectives for these workshops such that the average citizen can provide meaningful input to the Master Plan. Thanks!!
