Nine Mile Update
While there are still no visible changes on the site, there is lots of activity taking place to break ground on the Nine Mile development at the SE corner of SH 287 and Arapahoe Road.  The developer engaged by the Town, Evergreen Devco, has secured a commitment from Lowe’s and is targeting a November 2020 opening. To make that possible, Evergreen is finalizing the engineering plans for the development. Two weeks ago, staff held a pre-application meeting with representatives of the design team working on plans for the residential portion of the development (on the east side of the property). We will have similar meeting with the commercial design team when they are ready. On August 12, the Town of Erie Urban Renewal Authority (TOEURA) will consider updates to the development agreement under which the Town engaged Evergreen, and on August 13, the Board of Trustees will consider both the development agreement and a Metro District Service Plan to facilitate financing for the project.

If, like me, you wondered where the name “Nine Mile” came from, Evergreen’s Principal, Tyler Carlson, proposed the name to honor the history of the site. According to an article written by Silvia Pettem for the Boulder Daily Camera on December 23, 2007, "After World War I, the veterans' group, the American Legion, came up with the idea of beautifying Arapahoe as a "Road of Remembrance," complete with a stone gateway. Today, all that's left are the two stone pillars at Nine-Mile Corner, the intersection of Arapahoe Road and U.S. 287."  The intersection is roughly nine miles from downtown Boulder.

Cone Zone - Crack Sealing

Beginning August 5, 2019 through the end of October, a Department of Public Works contractor will begin applying a hot poured crack seal material to arterial and collector streets as well as streets within Vista Point, Vista Ridge, Grandview, Erie Commons, and Arapahoe Ridge neighborhoods.
Work will be performed Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., weather permitting. Traffic may be reduced to single-lane use. The Town will advise affected residents with a door hanger and ‘No Parking’ signage.
The Town of Erie requests that residents, pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists:

  • Avoid the construction area; alternate routes are advised
  • Reduce speeds and pay close attention to flaggers and traffic control signs
  • Keep parked vehicles in driveways until work has been completed

For more information on this project, please contact Town of Erie Streets Department, Cory Weiner at 303-926-2883, or Mike Dallas at 303-926-2894.
