PTSD Monument Unveiling Rescheduled to November 1, 2019 at Noon

The contractors building the block wall with the fundraising bricks have been doing an incredible job. Unfortunately, this type of work is new to them, and they didn’t realize it was going to be such a painstakingly slow process. It would have come in right under the wire if not for that crazy snow! Who knows what November 1st will bring in the way of weather, but the PTSD Monument will be a wonderful addition to Garden City regardless of the weather. We hope to see you there.

Land Use Hearing on February 5, 2019

There will be a Land Use Hearing on February 5, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Garden City Town Hall. The purpose of the hearing is for the Board of Trustees to hear the public’s opinion on Section 16-4-190. – Hours of operation (for a medical marijuana facility). The current Municipal Code states that  “A medical marijuana facility may operate between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and may operate during such hours seven days per week. (Ord. No. 06-2010, § 1, 7-20-2010; Ord. No. 03-2016, § 1, 3-29-2016)”

Currently, retail marijuana facilities can stay open until 8:00 p.m. It has been requested that medical marijuana facilities may keep the same business hours as retail marijuana, which means staying open until 8:00 p.m. rather than 7:00 p.m.

The Town Hall is located at 621 27th Street Road. If you have any questions, please call the Town Hall at 970-351-0041.

8th Avenue Paving

Paving is underway and will be completed on Saturday, October 20th. This is as bad as it will get! The end of construction is in sight. There are a few areas of concrete left to pour, and the street amenities (benches, trash cans, lighting and trees) are in their final stages. Please hang in there. You can get to businesses on the east side of 8th Avenue from 7th Avenue. You can get to 7th Avenue from 25th Street or Business 85. Thank you for taking your time and ensuring the safety of the workers during this difficult time.

Two Vacancies on the Board of Trustees

There are two vacancies on the Town of Garden City Board of Trustees. To be appointed to a trustee position, you must be a resident of the Town of Garden City for at least the last twelve consecutive months, must be at least eighteen years of age and be a registered voter. The position of Trustee is part-time, and this is reflected in the compensation paid to those elected.

Board members are expected to attend two regular meetings, usually on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 P.M. In addition, there are occasional special meetings, which are normally of short duration.

If you are interested in being appointed as a Trustee, please send or bring a letter of interest to the Town Hall on or before August 15, 2018.

If you are interested or have questions, please call Cheryl Campbell at the Town Hall: 970-351-0041.

8th Avenue Construction Starting May 29th

After years in the planning stages, Garden City’s dream of a friendlier landscape is becoming a reality. On May 29, 2018, Naranjo Civil Constructors will start work on the 8th Avenue Realignment Project. Garden City is shifting their portion of 8th Avenue to the west to allow for safer and more convenient parking, sidewalks, signaled crosswalks, trees, pedestrian lighting and more. Businesses will be open and accessible to customers during construction, which is expected to be complete in mid-November.

In the first phase, which will last approximately six weeks, 26th Street will be closed at the Everyday Store on 8th Avenue. Please keep that in mind when planning your travel in the area.

Traffic Plan – Phase 1

Traffic Plan – Phase 2

If you have any questions, please call the Town Hall at 970-351-0041. If you’d like to come by the Town Hall, the address is 621 27th Street Rd.

After five years of service to the community, the Garden City Outreach Center is now closed. We appreciate Lonelle Archuleta’s hard work to help those struggling to make ends meet. She is a blessing to many families and individuals in the community.
