Edgewater City Weekly: January 5, 2018

From the City of Edgewater:

Edgewater Civic Center

Construction Video: Every few weeks an employee from the Library District has been making a video from drone pictures taken at the construction site. We have uploaded the latest video (or link to the video) on our web site for viewing. He has told us that he will continue to do these videos and we will work to get them posted as the project progresses.

Code Enforcement

Graffiti Removal Program: In an effort to fast track the clean-up of graffiti in Edgewater, the City provides a cleanup program. The City of Edgewater will remove the graffiti through our Graffiti Removal Program. Please visit our web site for the form and return to the City of Edgewater for graffiti removal on your property. For graffiti on other properties in the City, please contact Code Enforcement at 720-459-3297 or codeenforcement@edgewaterco.com. A special thanks to Ace Hardware of Edgewater for providing paint and supplies for this program.

Parks and Recreation

Recreation Programs: Youth Sports and Dance programs are now online starting with our Edgewater Youth Jr. Saints Basketball programs starting in March of 2018. Age groups are for 5-6, 7-9, and 10-12. Please register at www.playedgewater.com.

Volunteer Programs: Edgewater has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities from coaching youth sports, working an event, to be a part of our snow angel program and helping a neighbor to shovel snow. Each volunteer must pass a background screening. Please register at www.playedgewater.com under the “Volunteers” tab.

Senior Activities: Along with Jewish Family Services, we already have senior activities up for 2018. Trips are scheduled through June already. Be sure to hold your spot as trips are filling up quickly. Register at www.playedgewater.com, or please stop into City Hall (2401 Sheridan) to fill out a form.

Snow Angels: Currently the City of Edgewater is in need of snow shoveling help, VOLUNTEERS. Volunteers must submit an application and clear a basic background screen before they can be assigned to a senior. The City of Edgewater works to assign the approved volunteer to a senior within the same block, or as close to the volunteer’s residence as possible. Volunteers, once assigned, are given 24 hours after a storm to clear the sidewalks around the senior’s home. We encourage volunteers to do this as soon as possible as we want to make sure seniors can get in and out of their homes, after a storm. City staff works to fill in for volunteers that are out of town during a storm. Volunteers tend to not only provide the snow shoveling but also help engage seniors in the community. Many times, we learn about other needs seniors may have through volunteers that have this connection. If you are looking for a rewarding way to give back to your community and become a Snow Angel please contact Patrick Martinez at 720-763-3010 or find us on-line at www.playedgewater.com under “volunteer opportunities” and “snow angel program”.

Public Works and Utilities

Holiday Tree Recycle: The City of Edgewater will be providing a tree drop off on Saturday, January 6 from 9am – 1pm at 22nd Ave. and Benton St. for Edgewater residents. Trees will be loaded into roll off containers and taken off location for mulching. If you are unable to transport your tree, are a City trash customer, and would like to dispose of it, please cut it in half and place it with your republic trash receptacle for pick-up.

Eaton / Depew Storm Drain Project: Our contractors have completed the installation of the new storm drain in the 2000 block alley between Depew St. and Eaton St. We expect to have an asphalt crew within the next two weeks (weather dependent) to overlay the alley with new asphalt. We also have some remediation work that will be on-going for the remainder of this month.
