Shooks Run Planning Kicks Off With Meeting

The City of Colorado Springs is looking at the future of Shooks Run, a corridor located east of downtown between Fountain Creek and Patty Jewett Golf Course. 

The first of several public workshops takes place on Thursday, kicking off a 16-month collaborative planning process called Envision Shooks Run. 

The project will create a plan to address issues like drainage, multi-modal transportation, and urban planning to help improve infrastructure and enhance the corridor.

Residents are encouraged to attend the meetings to discuss the goals of the project. In addition a survey is available at

The city will seek funding for the project once a plan is in place.  

Thursday's meeting takes place at North Middle School on Yampa at 4:30, with a presentation at 5:30.
