We are thrilled to announce our second successful grant application with Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO)! Our government sponsor, Jefferson County Transportation and Engineering, continued working with DEED after a first attempt and a combination refining the scope, raising the stakes and an expert rewriting of the application, we were awarded $49,000 in grant funds to prepare a master plan for safe non-vehicular connectivity in and throughout the Downtown Evergreen district. With $10,000 in matching funds and another $10,800 of in-kind contributions from EVstudio and EPRD, the total project funding comes to $69,800. Our own Evergreen Legacy Fund is providing the matching resources and this award would not have been possible without the generosity of all of the members of the application team.

This master plan is a critical pre-requisite to the funding of each component of the trail system that will be outlined in the master plan. It will involve a culmination of all previous planning work done over the years, a tremendous amount of mapping and GIS work and a significant community outreach effort to ensure that all of the Evergreen Community has a voice. We will be working not only with our sponsor, Jefferson County Transportation and Engineering, but other agencies as well, including Jefferson County Open Space and Evergreen Park and Recreation District.

The work now begins and we plan to kick off the process with all stakeholders before Christmas so we can hit the ground running in the new year!
