Linking Lookout Logo
Linking Lookout (US 6 & 19th St. Interchange)
Weather has slowed progress recently. Excavation on the mainline of US 6 on the south side of the lid continues this week if the weather cooperates. If excavation is completed, concrete curb pouring will begin.
The rock facing on the north bridge monuments has been installed. This week and next the large monuments on the south side will receive rock facing (see picture below). Installation of the bridge rail arch on the south end is complete.
Construction of the water quality pond near the hang gliding landing field continues weather permitting. Park only in designated areas if you are accessing the landing field or Chimney Gulch Trail.
Irrigation and lighting work continues on the lid, as well as lighting under the bridge.

Watch the Linking Lookout web page for more information.
There is a construction viewing area in the northwest corner that can be accessed from Parfet Estates Drive, and will be an excellent location to view ongoing work. Please park legally.

CSM Neighborhoods Open House & Online Survey
Join the Community and Economic Development Department for a community planning process and public input opportunity for the Colorado School of Mines Neighborhoods on Wednesday, April 12, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Golden Community Center. This City-driven process is not intended to address the arrangement of various university uses within the campus boundaries, but rather focus on the relationship of campus as a whole to the community, and the interface of campus edges with nearby residential, commercial, cultural, and recreational uses.

City Council and staff are seeking specific input and recommendations as to how the relationship of the buildings and uses along the edges of campus can meet the university's needs while respecting and enhancing the physical and social relationship with adjacent neighbors. Give us your thoughts with our  quick survey.

For more information contact the Community and Economic Development Department at 303-384-8097.
Xeriscaping Water-Wise Landscape Seminar TONIGHT!

One of the most exciting aspects of creating a water-wise garden is selecting the plants that will thrive in your yard and provide your landscape with glorious color and vibrancy. This seminar will teach you about hardy, low water, and climate appropriate perennials that will provide lasting, and often, year-round beauty and dimension to your landscape. If you want to know how to add layers of endless color and life to your landscape, then this is the presentation for you. Learn about planning, designing, and maintaining a water-wise garden that's not only pollinator-friendly but also incredibly rich in color and beauty.

Around Town
Golden Drops Fire Restrictions
Due to changes in weather patterns, the Golden Fire Department lifted the Stage 1 fire restrictions within the city limits of Golden, which were put into effect back on February 17.  This status change became effective at noon on April 3.  This does not apply to areas in Unincorporated Jefferson County, just within city limits.
Golden Fire will continue to monitor the weather and make adjustments as necessary.  We still ask that citizens take precautions and be smart about extinguishing fires and cigarettes.
