The South Platte River is getting a makeover in the form of three infrastructure projects. The renovation will be a stretch just south of Mile High Stadium to about 8th Avenue. The first project is a floodplain and bank improvement to the South Platte and Lakewood Gulch. The River will be widened by about 40 feet and the riverbed will be lowered about 5 feet. This will make a huge difference and actually remove most of the areas west of Downtown from the 100-year floodplain. The second project is RTD’s West Corridor Light Rail. This will be running through the Lakewood Gulch project. The improvements will remove the light rail station currently under construction from the floodplain. The final project is the reconstruction of the Federal Boulevard Bridge over Lakewood Gulch. This bridge is in poor condition and is in desperate need of repair. With the reconstruction will also accommodate the RTD tracks. These projects will make a big difference to the downtown and Riverfront residnects that run and bike this path daily.

Colorado Gives Day was an unbelievable success this past Wednesday. Community First Foundation and FirstBank have partnered to help increase donations to the states nonprofit sector. Colorado Gives Day was formed to help over 450 Colorado nonprofit organizations through a one-day online giving program. Surprisingly, Colorado ranks among the lowest states in charitable contributions even though it has higher average incomes. The goal this year was to raise one million in one day. After the 24 hours were over, everyone was stunned that over 8 million was raised! The incredible outpouring of support for those in need is amazing! I hope this is sign for positive things to come in 2011!
