Take a Minute a community effort

Take A Minute/Slow Down in Town wishes to thank all who looked down the road, and helped craft a campaign to envision and work to deliver a community united not divided by traffic.

In May, our elected city councilors unanimously passed a resolution for this effort, and a grant was awarded to fund continuing efforts. We thank Tanya Allen for coining the slogan.

RFSD included information in their newsletter, and the Post Independent posted a column written by Lindsay DeFrates.

Funding provided by Alpine Bank, One Of A Kind, VVH, and **Shugart and Schachter allowed for the creativity of Dylan Lewis for the logo/signage posted by residents and businesses along our most impacted community streets. CDOT posts our slogan above our highways, and our local police joined in spreading the message.

We thank all of the motorists who take this message to heart and invest a minute in Glenwood’s well-being by easing off the gas and driving legally.

We are grateful to the donations of Microplastics, Gran Farnum, Sandy’s Office supply, Big Sids, KMTS, KDNK, Suzanne Stewart and Debbie Wilde. We ask that you Take A Minute and thank the residents and shop with the businesses that continue to post and support this community message.
