Huge Thank You to all of the Volunteers and Donors for the Downtown Cleanup Effort! September 26, 2013
DEED would like to extend a huge THANK YOU!! to all of the amazing volunteers and donors that went into cleaning up our Downtown Evergreen on Wednesday morning and getting things looking back to normal…actually better than normal!
The Evergreen Chamber, EDBA and DEED sent the word out to their respective memberships and the local community for a “restore downtown” effort in the wake of the flood. The time to meet was this past Wednesday morning at 9:00 and we were amazed at the number of people who showed up! The challenges we were facing ran the gamut from flood debris on sidewalks to figuring out what we do with all of these sandbags? The community responded.
In addition, The Home Depot generously donated cleanup supplies, without which the cleanup effort would not have been possible. Additionally, they gave these supplies to downtown for use in future regular cleanup efforts. And for all the hard work, Baskin Robbins graciously gave free ice cream to all the workers as well! Other snacks and drinks were also provided as well.
While the water level and volume is still high, we had to stay safely out of the river at this time, but hope that we can join forces again with Trout Unlimited to do a proper stream cleanup once the water level is safely at it’s normal seasonal flow for this time of year.
We’re so fortunate to live in such a wonderful community that cares so much about their downtown. The generosity has been amazing and we’re still working on how to thank everyone who have helped out throughout the flooding.
DEED to Look Into Providing Public Restrooms Downtown August 21, 2013
It has been a strong priority for many of the downtown businesses and Evergreen Legacy Fund Members. Until we can identify a property (and a willing property owner) to install permanent restrooms, temporary facilities are being proposed. These would be ADA accessible temporary toilets, concealed behind a tasteful barrier with universal signage. These facilities will not only provide an essential amenity for our Downtown, but also serve to relieve (no pun intended) the needs of our many events in downtown Evergreen. Stay tuned as we zero in on specific locations and designs!
DEED is re-writing the Grant Application for the August submittal of the GOCO Master Planning Grant in partnership with Jefferson County Highways and Transportation as a partner and additional support from our own Evergreen Parks and Rec District. We feel confident that we are able to address the concerns of GOCO in a convincing way and hopefully be successful in this round!
Below is an image of the scope of this Master Plan and the connectivity it is intended to create or improve:
