Public Hearing – RIVERSIDE NEEDS YOU!

April 30, 2017 – 8:19 am

RTD and BNSF railway have filed a petition with the state of Colorado to move the current entrance to Riverside Cemetery.  

 

The proposed new location of the entrance, at the north end of the cemetery on York street, impacts not only the accessibility of the office to visitors and the safety and security of the cemetery, but also it will greatly alter this historic landmark.

 

RIVERSIDE CEMETERY NEEDS YOU!

 

There will be a hearing to discuss this change and collect public comment.  Please make time in your schedule to attend in person and make your thoughts known about this change.

 

The hearing will be:

Thursday, May 11th, 2017 at 4:00 PM

1560 Broadway, 2nd floor

Commission hearing room A

 

Please attend and oppose the York street entrance.  Alternative entrances (such as one on Race Street), while more expensive, are viable and preferred.

 

More information but the filing and hearing may be found on the PUC web site.  Click here to view.
