Town Administrator April 15, 2019
ULI Technical Advisory Panel
Thanks to our Economic Development Director, Ben Pratt’s quick and thorough work in preparing the Town’s application, Urban Land Institute and Denver Regional Council of Governments selected the Town of Erie to receive a $5,000 match for a Technical Advisory Panel (TAP). We expect to convene the TAP on July 11th and 12th. The TAP will help the Town and the four different private developers working on plans in the Four Corners area (Erie Parkway and East County Line Road) create thriving and attractive development in that location.
Meeting with Mountain View Fire Rescue
I had a good meeting with Fire Chief David Beebe. In response to my question about their annual report showing that Mountain View Fire and Rescue (MVFR) response times are longer than their goal in the Nine Mile area, the Chief explained the illustration shows only MVFR's response, and in that area their mutual aid with Lafayette Fire Department and “closest available unit” policy results in Lafayette usually being first on the scene. Because the response time statistics show only MVFR response, it overstates the time to first response, while the actual response time is less. Thanks for working collaboratively to keep Erie covered!
Serene Park Opening
Mayor Carroll, Trustees and I all thank the Parks and Recreation and other Town staff, and the Town’s partner CDG Development, for all of their hard work to get the Town’s most recent park designed and built. Town staff also provided a truly fun grand opening last Friday. Thank you!
