Volunteers Needed August 16th for Re-imagine West Colfax!

by Jill Locantore

Re-imagine West Colfax is a one-day community celebration and demonstration that will test out creative redesigns that make Colfax more pedestrian and bicycle friendly, including enhanced crosswalks, median refuges, wider sidewalks, small pop-up parks along Colfax, and several types of bike lanes that allow riders to test what it feels like to ride on each. All of these features will be paired with food, music, art and beer. In addition to helping with set-up and tear-down of the event, we need volunteers to host various activity stations throughout the day, including parklets and “Tour de Donut” bike stations. All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and refreshments!

    I don’t know if you guys found enough volunteers for the event but it turned out great! We were only able to stop by for a shorter period of time but all the vendors and community goers alike seemed happy! The flamenco music that was featured was perfect for the atmosphere and there was a good variety of local vendors! Cheers!

    We went to the event.
    Very difficult to imagine that stretch of Colfax becoming “nice”.
    This will be long, uphill struggle.
