DPZ CoDesign

What is a Design Charette?
In August, the Board approved a contract with DPZ CoDesign to develop a Master Plan for Erie's Four Corners/Town Center, the area around the intersection of Erie Parkway and County Line Road.

DPZ's staff came to Erie last week and met with land owners, developers, Town engineers, and planners.  They were reviewing participants’ current plans and stakeholders perspectives on the area, market demand and existing regulations. DPZ used these meetings to help prepare for their design charrette planned for Wednesday, November 6th through Tuesday, November 12. The charrette is intended to engage all interested parties in collaboratively creating the Master Plan for a thriving Town Center with a unique sense of place, including the right mix of retail, office, residential, civic, park and open space uses that will thrive in Erie. DPZ will give an Opening Presentation at 6:30PM on Wednesday, November 6th (location TBD). Please attend that session and learn about DPZ’s approach. Also, please download the charrette schedule to see which sessions might be of most interest to you and then come to those sessions to listen and share your perspective. Everyone is welcome!

Erie PD Soccer Team


Members of the Erie Police Department challenged the 'Blue Lightning Fish', a very talented 5-6 year old co-ed soccer team, on Monday. Despite a valiant effort by the EPD, the 'Blue Lightning Fish' took home the victory on a last-second goal.
A panel comprised of human resources, a civilian and EPD staff conducted oral boards for two open police officer vacancies.

Economic Development

The Town Economic Development staff attended the annual Denver Metro Economic Development’s Site Selection Recap breakfast. The event provides valuable insight to regional and national trends of the site selection community. 

Some key insights the panelists shared:
• Colorado’s labor shed is well educated with many educational institutions contributing to the labor pipeline
• Colorado’s innovative hybrid labor union policies remain competitive
•Development incentives require review and revision to properly address the changing market and employer needs
• Investment in transportation infrastructure is imperative to improve the ease of doing business in the state
