Here’s the release from the High Line Canal Conservancy:

The High Line Canal Conservancy, which is dedicated to preserving the recreational and environmental future of the High Line Canal, announced the dates and locations in Denver and Aurora for “Chapter Two: A Fork in the Road,” a series of community open houses dedicated to shaping the future of the High Line Canal. The goal of the open houses is to develop a shared vision for what the Canal could become. We have come to a fork in the road: what are the risks for the Canal’s current trajectory? What can be done to better preserve, protect, and enhance the Canal’s future?

“We believe the future of the Canal should be shaped by the 11 distinct communities through which it travels,” said Harriet Crittenden LaMair, executive director of the High Line Canal Conservancy. “We developed these open houses so that anyone can drop in at any point during the scheduled time frame to share ideas and better understand the current issues facing the Canal.”

The High Line Canal Conservancy team will share feedback based on what they’ve heard so far and will be looking for feedback on potential ideas to preserve, protect and enhance the Canal. Friends and neighbors are welcome!

The dates and locations of the interactive open houses are:

  • Wednesday, July 20, from 11am-1:30 p.m. at the Expo Recreation Center
    10955 E. Exposition Ave., Aurora CO 80012
  • Wednesday, July 20, from 4-8 p.m. at Eloise May Library
    1471 S. Parker Rd., Denver CO 80231
  • Thursday, July 21, from 4-8 p.m. at Eisenhower Recreation Center
    4300 E. Dartmouth Ave., Denver CO 80222

All three sessions will be identical, so guests are invited to attend the event most convenient to them and stop by for as long as they would like.
