Gregory Canyon Creek Flood Mitigation
The City is working on flood mitigation improvements for Gregory Canyon Creek.
Flood Mitigation Plan
The city's Flood Mitigation Plan for Gregory Canyon Creek includes habitat improvements, culvert replacements to convey a 10-year storm, channel improvements, sediment traps, roadway improvements and other features. The Flood Mitigation Plan was accepted by City Council in December 2015 and is available via the links on the right side of this page.
Capital Improvement Projects
744 University: In October 2017, the city purchased the property at 744 University to remove the house from the high hazard flood zone and provide for better opportunities for flood mitigation. This property was one of several highlighted in the Gregory Canyon Creek Flood Mitigation Plan as a priority for acquisition. The city is currently exploring options to relocate the structure to another site and issued an RFP Announcement for relocation proposals. Two proposals were received. The Landmarks Board recommended the issuance of a relocation permit on Jan. 3, 2018.
Highland Bridge: In June 2017, the city completed construction of a new bridge to access the Highland Club property.
Design of Future Improvements: Capital improvement funds have been allocated for 2018 to begin design work for culvert and channel improvements beginning at Arapahoe Ave. and working upstream. An engineering consulting firm will be selected to help with the design and analysis.
