Clear Creek Greenway Design Effort
In 2013 The Greenway Foundation (TGF) was approached by Clear Creek County to help develop a new non-profit organization, now known as the Clear Creek Greenway Authority (CCGA). The purpose of the CCGA is to help develop and maintain a multi-use greenway throughout the County.
In 2014 the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) agreed to provide Clear Creek County with $2,000,000 of state funds to design the section of the future Clear Creek Greenway Trail from Hidden Valley to Empire Junction. Clear Creek County matched this commitment from CDOT with an additional $500,000.
In partnership with the County, the CCGA has contracted with TGF and its design and facilitation team to oversee the initial design of this significant amenity so that the project can create “shovel-ready” projects, the design of which maximize the opportunity to obtain the needed funding to allow this vision to become a reality in the foreseeable future.
