Mounument Creek Master Plan Open House

Thanks to a collaborative effort among several groups working to restore one of the Pikes Peak Region’s most expansive waterways, the Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District has been awarded a $300,000 matching grant to develop a master plan for the restoration of Monument Creek and its tributaries.
Representatives from Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District, the City of Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado Springs Utilities and the United States Air Force Academy will be hosting two open houses to give interested citizens a chance to give input on a restoration master plan.  The goal of the restoration plan is to identify and set priorities for critical restoration projects along the waterway.
Many Trail Advocates want to go beyond “Complete Streets” and embrace “Complete Creeks” – more access to the water. Share your vision for the creek by participating in Monument Creek master planning open houses Nov. 18.
Tuesday, Nov. 17–this meeting has been cancelled.
Wednesday, Nov. 18
5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Discovery Canyon Campus
1810 North Gate Blvd.
The Monument Creek waterway extends from the northern reaches of El Paso County in Palmer Lake south to where it meets Fountain Creek. Monument Creek tributaries including Kettle Creek, Squirrel Creek, North and South Douglas creeks, Jacks Valley and others will be studied in the development of the restoration plan.
