Goals Met for Dickson Memorial

dickson memorial A respectful silence filled the atmosphere at the Chamber's February Business After Hours where there was a short video about the Dickson Memorial Project.  The BAH was hosted Park State Bank.

Thanks to generous donations from event attendees and its hosts, The Greater Woodland Park Chamber of Commerce and Park State Bank & Trust, the evening's fundraising goals were not only met but abundantly exceeded.

Although significant funds of $56,000 had previously been allocated, Tuesday's event was established to reach the completion of funding goals totaling $75,000 to build a memorial in Woodland Park's Memorial Park.

The inspiration to create another memorial on Dickson's behalf began with two of his closest childhood friends, Steve Plutt and Steve Storrs. Both actively heading this project and present at Tuesday night's event, they arranged a centerpiece table with visible memorabilia and a printed brochure highlighting the story of Eric's life which was made readily available for those attending.  Click HERE to see full story.

Transportation Survey Input Needed

Regional Transporation Plan Between now and 2045, the Pikes Peak Region will experience significant growth, as well as social, demographic, and technological changes that will impact our daily lives. The region's population is forecast to increase from 712,000 to over 1.1 million in the next 25 years, and PPACG is considering how this growth and changes like the introduction of automated vehicles and the lifestyle preferences of future generations will impact transportation.
 
PPACG just released a survey to request public input on transportation needs in the Pikes Peak region, now and in the future. The survey is available HERE until March 23, 2018 on the PPACG website.  The survey and may be converted into alternative formats or languages upon request.  Survey results will be made available and posted online.
 
As the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization for the Pikes Peak Region, PPACG must maintain a long-range regional transportation plan that describes transportation needs and investment priorities. This plan provides the foundation for all aspects of decision-making by establishing the vision and goals for transportation within our region. The plan also identifies existing and future transportation needs for the region along with both long- and short-range strategies to address these needs.
