Join the Clear Creek Watershed Foundation in Adams County where Adams County Parks & Open Space will be holding a community meeting coupled with a family fun kite flying outing (weather permitting) at Rotella Park, 1824 Coronado Pkwy. South, Thornton. You'll have the opportunity to review the Clear Creek corridor master plan and tell them what you think.
Clear Creek runs approximately seven miles through southwest Adams County from Sheridan Blvd. to the South Platte River Confluence. A regional trail and several trail access points have been developed through this corridor, but currently few other amenities are located along the corridor.
The Clear Creek Corridor Plan will provide a basis for future improvement projects that will provide a variety of recreational amenities while protecting and enhancing the natural systems in the Clear Creek corridor. The goals of the plan include improving safety, making trail connections to surrounding neighborhoods and new transit areas, providing amenities that are lacking in the surrounding neighborhoods, improving habitat and ecological systems, and identifying locations for bank stabilization and restoration projects.
The Clear Creek Watershed Foundation will be presenting water quality data information and comparing stream quality to applicable water-quality standards and beneficial-use criteria. For an overview of the data analysis to date, upload the CCWF April 2017 Clear Creek Water Quality Presentation.
