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!

Erie Police Department



Erie PD celebrated their 18 dedicated Volunteers in Policing Services (VIPS) on Monday evening, April 8, 2019, during National Volunteer Appreciation Week.   Dinner was provided at the Colorado National Golf Course.  VIPS conduct a wide variety of duties for the Erie PD to include:

  • Data entry, filing
  • Preparing court dockets
  • Chaplaincy
  • Viewing surveillance videos for detectives
  • Annual case file retention
  • Evidence destruction
  • Staffing booths at special events
  • Role playing for police training

  • many, many, more assignments!

McGruff Spotted

Sources spotted McGruff at the grand opening of Serene Park in Collier’s Hill on Friday. Rather than work his many assigned cases, McGruff chose to spend the afternoon making new friends. 

Public Works

Public Works

Public Works has swept 38 tons of debris so far this year.
The Board of Trustees adopted the North Water Reclamation Facility Master Plan which lays the road map for the facility for the next 20 years. 

Erie Parkway Bridge work continues full steam. The girders (cross-beams) will be placed April 22-24. 

Citizen Survey

Please help us shape the future of Erie! The first wave of surveys will be sent mid-April to a randomized sample of residents. If you don't receive the survey in the mail, you'll still have an opportunity to send your submission in May.
It won't take much of your time to make a big difference! Thank you in advance for helping create a better Town!
