Pueblo West Metro District will host a community meeting seeking input from residents on future planning for street and road maintenance. The meeting will take place on Saturday, April 22 at 9:30 a.m. at the Pueblo Shrine Club, located at 1501 W. McCulloch Blvd. All pueblo west residents and stakeholders are encouraged to attend and engage with Metro District and Pueblo County staff and officials on the topic of roads in Pueblo West.
In 2016, the Metro District conducted a survey asking residents what District service they felt should be the priority for 2017-2018, as well as their level of satisfaction with current services. Street and road maintenance was named top priority, and had the lowest satisfaction level for current services provided.
At the meeting, Metro District officials will provide a snapshot of the Public Works department, the 2017 department budget, and potential solutions to address the public’s concerns. “We hope residents and landowners in Pueblo West will attend and provide their ideas, opinions, and constructive feedback. Public engagement on tough issues facing the community is an important way of informing the elected board of what the community thinks is important,” said Communications and Engagement Director, Jay-Michael Baker. Pueblo West Public Works staff will present and County Commissioner Garrison Ortiz and County Streets and Roads officials have been invited to participate. Come out and learn, engage, and let your voice be heard on this important topic.
