Energize Open House in West End Neighborhood
Monday, April 15, 6pm – 8pm
Lowell Elementary (1507 N 28th St)

After gathering Visioning feedback from people who live, work, and have children who attend school in West End throughout 2018, we are ready for the next step in the Visioning process. You helped identify ways to improve your neighborhood, now come learn about potential projects and vote for your top choice! We will also provide updates on current projects and plans for the neighborhood, as well as information about City programs and resources.

The top project(s) will be selected for development and implementation, and residents will be able to join the working group(s) formed for the project focus area(s). Click here to be notified of Energize updates and opportunities to be involved in projects.

At the Open House, you will be able to vote for one of the following projects:

  1. Crane Creek Project. Enhancement of the dirt road along Crane Creek (southeast of Whitewater Blvd) between State St. and Jordan St., along with beautification/landscaping.
  2. Enhanced greenbelt connection from Fletcher St. Improvements, paving, and beautification of the greenbelt connection from Fletcher St. (south of Fairview Ave., north of the connector/overpass). 
  3. Water feature in Fairview Park. Water misters along the walkway in Fairview Park.
  4. Pedestrian/bicycle crossing on 23rd St. between Pleasanton Ave./Bannock St. A protected crossing on 23rd St. to enhance safe access to Fairview Park.
  5. Neighborhood events and community-building efforts. Neighborhood event(s) and activities to engage and connect residents and build/strengthen a sense of community.

If you aren’t able to attend the West End Open House, you can still vote on a project. Be on the lookout for a postcard in the mail that will include the list of projects. Vote for your top choice, and return the postcard (postage paid) to the Energize team. Be sure to mail in your vote by April 30th!
