8th St. Riverwalk

Exciting Plans for Glenwood Springs

6th Street 'Gateway to Glenwood'


After extensive public input including a survey of registered voters in the community asking opinions about the tax and potential uses, the following bonding projects have been identified. Voters will be asked to approve this bonding in November:

  1. Improve safety and traffic congestion by constructing bridge and road improvements that may include South Bridge, South Midland Ave. and the 27th St. Sunlight Bridge.
  2. Construction of a Riverwalk to include river access, parks and other infrastructure at the confluence of the Roaring Fork & Colorado Rivers.
  3. Construction of the “Gateway to Glenwood Springs” by making street-scaping and other improvements to the 6th St. corridor.

All this will be done without an increase in the current tax and….70% of the tax is paid by Glenwood Springs’ visitors.

Surveyed registered voters showed support for extending the current tax for 30 years. Tax collections will result in $4 million per year and because of extremely low interest rates we can bond for and begin to construct $53 million worth of projects now.
