Comments Sought on Restoration Project in Denver
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking comments on the recently released draft feasibility report and integrated environmental assessment which outlines a proposed plan to restore approximately 2.4 miles of degraded ecosystem along the South Platte River, from West Mississippi Avenue upstream to West Yale Avenue, in Denver, Colorado.
The draft report, developed in coordination with the local sponsor (City and County of Denver), provides information on the need for the project, current conditions of the project area, identification of opportunities for restoration, development of various restoration alternatives and selection of the proposed plan.
The plan also includes recreation features that complement the ecosystem restoration components of the project including a viewing platform, boardwalk connecting the Regional Trail to restored areas of Grant Frontier Park and interpretive educational signage.
Deadline for sending comments on the draft feasibility report is July 6, 2018.
Comments can also be provided during an open house scheduled on Monday, June 18, 2018 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Decker Branch Library in Denver.
There will be a formal presentation around 6 p.m. followed by an open house where people will have an opportunity to learn more about the project and provide comments on the proposed plan.
