Posted

In lieu of a council workshop, the City Council met with representatives from Arvada’s 12 boards and commissions to discuss the progress of the year’s projects, events and possible improvements, Oct. 14.

“We appreciate each and every one of you on the committees for all your work you do; we couldn’t do it without you,” said Mayor Marc Williams to the committee representatives in the meeting.

Issues such as the upcoming RTD Gold Line, city sidewalk projects, park safety, improving access to Arvada Ridge and Arvada’s Comprehensive Plan were discussed. Many of the representatives also highlighted their satisfaction with the city staff and the ease of working with them to make many accomplishments through their terms.

Overall, the council was satisfied with the progress of the boards and commissions, but they agreed there should be more collaboration between the individual boards and also more collaboration with each board on Arvada’s comprehensive plan.

The next City Council meeting workshop will be 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28, in the Council Chambers at 8101 Ralston Road.
