What’s your vision of Colorado Springs? What direction should it take over the next decade or so? When people think of Colorado Springs, what images do you want them to conjour?
The Dream City Vision 2020 initiative is designed to answer those questions by probing the imaginations of people across the Pikes Peak region.
For the past few months, Dream City promoters _ its four primary parters include The Gazette, Leadership Pikes Peak, the Pikes Peak Library District and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPeR) _ have been sponsoring conversations to generate ideas.
Those conversations now are coming to the neighborhood level and organizers want you to get involved. The first is 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 17, with the Old North End Neighborhood. It’s scheduled at the First Lutheran Church in its Fellowship Hall, 1515 N. Cascade Ave.
It is for Old North End residents only.
A ”Come One, Come All” meeting is being planned by the Council of Neighborhoods & Organizations for its April 7 meeting.
If you prefer, the organizers will help you plan one for your own neighborhood. Simply contact Becci Ruder at firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll find trained facilitators to lead the discussion and gather ideas that will be plugged into a database to guide more in-depth discussions in the next phase of the Dream City project.
Or you could attend one of the upcoming “Come One _ Come All” sessions. The first is at 6 p.m., Wednesday, March 11 at the Rockrimmon Branch Library near the Safeway at 832 Village Center Drive, near the intersection of Vindicator Drive and Rockrimmon Boulevard.
Another session with an open invitation is for 6 p.m., Thursday, March 12, at the Penrose Public Library downtown, 20 N. Cascade Ave.
