Phones along C-470 will be ringing July 31, August 1 and August 2 as the C-470 Corridor Coalition hosts a series of telephone town hall meetings to provide information on efforts to expand and improve the highway and to get input on how to pay for these upgrades.
Jefferson County is a part of the C-470 Coalition, which is dedicated to improving the safety and mobility along the C-470 Corridor from I-25 to I-70. The C-470 Coalition is made up of elected officials and representatives from three counties along the route -- Jefferson, Arapahoe and Douglas – and several cities including Lone Tree and Centennial; the Highlands Ranch Metro District and business groups. Commissioner Donald Rosier represents Jefferson County on the coalition.
Over the course of three days, 200,000 calls will be placed at random to people living near the C-470 corridor. Although each telephone town hall will include representatives from specific jurisdictions, you do not need to live in that particular area to participate. Any residents who don’t receive a call can still participate by calling 877-229-8493 and entering PIN number 110302.
The schedule for these hour-long telephone town halls and the panelists for each is as follows:
Tuesday, July 31
6:15 p.m. – Jefferson County Commissioner Donald Rosier and Colorado Department of Transportation Commissioner Ed Peterson
7:30 p.m. – Centennial Mayor Cathy Noon and Arapahoe County Commissioner Nancy Sharpe
