Come and comment on the confluence

Ideas and concepts for the future of the Glenwood Springs “confluence area” will be put to the public this evening.

Preliminary sketches for the outlook of the land located on the east bank of the Roaring Fork River where it drains into the Colorado River – now occupied by the city’s wastewater treatment plant and a railroad wye – will be presented to the public in City Council Chambers from 5-7:30 p.m. tonight.

“The consultants will share some of the ideas that have been generated in the first round of meetings,” Glenwood Springs Community Development Department director Andrew McGregor said.

“The public will look at the work and make some comments.”

Some ideas for the area, which is slated to be developed if and when the treatment plant is moved, include retail space, residential and office space.

Clarion Associates consultant Leslie Bethel, Otak Rock Creek Studio’s Roger Millar and Arnie Ray, a market consultant, will be on hand to unveil the plans and answer questions.

“All input is encouraged,” McGregor said. He particularly encouraged downtown residents, landowners and business owners to attend.
