Help Plan the Long-term Future
of Shooks Run Corridor

You are Invited to the 2nd  Session in a Series of Public Workshops to Identify Needed Improvements and Opportunities for this Important Community Asset.
DATE: Thurs., October 29, 2015
TIME: 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Palmer High School Gymnasium
325 N. Wahsatch Avenue, Colorado Springs, 80903

During this citizen-involved, collaborative workshop,
corridor theme options will be explored based on the challenges and opportunities identified by you, community participants, at the June workshop. As citizens with an interest in the corridor, your first-hand knowledge and ideas are important to us. Please plan to attend and provide your input.

Building upon the historic vision for the Shooks Run corridor, this study will lead to a prioritized plan for future construction of much needed multi-modal transportation and drainage improvements to the aging infrastructure. In addition, enhancement opportunities that maximize community benefits for all who use the corridor will be evaluated.

 Keypad Polling Results
from June 18 Public Meeting Workshop

While the results are not statistically representative, they provide a snapshot of the opinions and viewpoints of the approximate 155 citizens who participated in the first Envision Shooks Run public workshop held June 18.

Overall, participants in the keypad polling session in particular favored enhancing connections (of various types) from Shooks Run to other destinations and assets in the area and between different parts of the corridor. They would like Shooks Run to better connect them to the water, and they largely support the ideas and the vision of the Legacy Loop, the City's Parks Plan, and Imagine Downtown. Participants also expressed concern about the safety and overall appearance or aesthetics of Shooks Run currently, and they support efforts to enhance parks and open spaces, public spaces, natural areas, and streetscapes and other places along the corridor.

Overall, the group supported a "connected" Shooks Run corridor, a different look and feel in different segments, and a secluded and natural, open channel. CLICK HERE to view the results from each question.
Shooks Run Community Values

LEARN MORE about the community values established from citizens participation during the June public workshop.

The Envision Shooks Run study focuses on one of the more important stream corridors in the central part of the City of Colorado Springs. The project area is generally located to the east of Downtown Colorado Springs, between the Patty Jewett Golf Course area to the north, and the Fountain Creek corridor, to the south. It encompasses the southeastern quadrant of the Legacy Loop trail.
