Be involved with community planningDear Editor, Originally addressed to the citizens of Glenwood Springs:The Glenwood Springs Department of Parks and Recreation has engaged the services of GreenPlay LLC, a nationally renowned park and recreation consulting firm, to help conduct a community needs assessment as part of the development of a Parks and Recreation Comprehensive Master Plan. The intent of this portion of the study is to identify our community’s park, recreation, trials and open space needs so we can pro-actively plan for the future. In order to identify these needs, we are asking for your help.As a component of the planning process, GreenPlay is conducting a series of focus group meetings with community leaders and residents. Because we value your opinion, we invite you to participate in one of these focus groups. GreenPlay will ask participants a variety of questions to assess customer satisfaction, parks, recreation and service needs of the community, and issues that should be addressed in the feasibility study. With a focus group, there are never wrong answers, so everybody is encouraged to be open and freely express their thoughts. Meetings usually last about 90 minutes.The open public meetings will take place on April 4 through 6 at the Community Center on days and times as follows: Tuesday, April 4, at 3:30 and 6 p.m.; Wednesday, April 5, at 4 and 6 p.m.; and Thursday, April 6, at 6 p.m.To accommodate your busy schedule, a variety of meeting times will also be available by request on a first-come, first-served basis.Please call Shanelle with the Glenwood Springs Parks and Recreation Department at 384-6310 to reserve your time slot today.

Your input will help guide the future of your Glenwood Springs Parks and Recreation Department – improving the quality of life in our community for generations to come. Leon Kuhn, Director Glenwood Springs Parks and Recreation DepartmentWitnessing a good deedDear Editor,This morning, on my way to work, I noticed a state trooper’s vehicle in a ditch just before the Old Snowmass Conoco station. After crawling in traffic for a few minutes, a white van pulled to the side of the road in front of the state trooper. Six or more young men got out of the van, walked over to the trooper’s car and pushed him out of the ditch. With a wave, the men returned to the van and went on their way. It made my day!Thank you, you know who you are, for helping an officer in need.Astrid B. JanuszGlenwood Springs
