The High Line Canal Conservancy (HLCC), in partnership with Denver Water and local governments, has been working on a Framework Plan to preserve and enhance this treasured 71-mile greenway. The draft Framework Plan is packed with ideas, strategies and plans for revitalizing and transitioning the High Line Canal as a regional greenway. The voice of the community is critical as the Framework Plan progresses to its final form.
Show Up for the Canal – public open houses
There will be two community open houses that will have identical information for review. Pick one that works best for you and drop in to share your thoughts and ideas.
Wednesday, Jan. 23, 5-7 p.m. at Euclid Middle School, 777 W. Euclid Ave., Littleton
Thursday, Jan. 24, 5-7 p.m. at Eloise May Library, 1471 S. Parker Road, Denver
The Framework Plan will highlight the opportunities and challenges that accompany the historic canal system, while laying out inspiring and practical guidance for improvements that honor and enhance its unique attributes according to the Community Vision Plan. At these upcoming community open houses, attendees can explore and help guide future investment in key opportunity areas on the canal. Those who attend will also be able to learn about the design guidelines, including signage and wayfinding and how stormwater can be used in the canal.
Both open houses will seek vital input from the community and canal users to:
Prioritize key areas on the canal as opportunities for future improvement.
Identify landscape guidelines that promote protection and restoration of the natural environment.
Improve signage and wayfinding to meet your needs.
Finalize canal-wide big ideas to drive implementation in the near future.
Advance stormwater approaches in the canal.
For those unable to attend an open house, there will be an online community survey to collect feedback following the public meetings (visit highlinecanal.org/framework).
The various components of the Framework Plan were introduced to the public at two community open houses in April. Public comment collected from the open houses was used to shape this near-final version of the Framework Plan.
