Upper Montclair Basin Stormwater Meeting

A 15-month, community-based study of flood-prone areas in the Upper Montclair Basin will culminate with a public meeting to discuss the study’s findings and next steps on Tuesday, April 10 from 5:30-7 pm at Montview Presbyterian Church in the Fellowship Hall at 1980 Dahlia Street in Park Hill. The Upper Montclair Basin includes the neighborhoods of Congress Park, South City Park, the southern portion of Park Hill, Bellevue-Hale, Montclair, Mayfair, Hilltop, and Crestmoor. The team worked with area stakeholders, community leaders, business owners, and the greater public to first identify and then investigate solutions for several highly impacted, flood-prone areas in the basin. This final public meeting will offer opportunities for the community to learn more about study results and next steps.

Topics for discussion include:

·         Hale Parkway and the area around the intersection of Severn and Jersey Streets, including results of a traffic study and next steps in developing a hybrid solution of pipes and greenway.

  • 16th Avenue in Park Hill between Colorado Boulevard and Glencoe Street, including information on current City efforts to bring larger storm pipes and green infrastructure to improve drainage
  • 14th and Krameria Street and nearby areas along Colfax Avenue, including updates on challenges and opportunities in these flood-prone, business and residential areas.

·         Resources and information on how individuals and neighborhood blocks can work to implement localized interventions to minimize the impact of nuisance flooding.

The public meeting will include a check-in and orientation from 5:30- 6 p.m. and an open house from 6 - 7 p.m. Background information, maps, meeting minutes, and meeting materials are available here. The City and County of Denver and the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District are jointly sponsoring this study of flood and stormwater management in the Upper Montclair Basin.
