  • Thanksgiving DUI Enforcement to Crack Down on Impaired DriversThanksgiving DUI Enforcement to Crack Down on Impaired Drivers

    10-Day Enforcement Stretch Begins Friday STATEWIDE — As Thanksgiving motorists flock to Colorado roads to celebrate with friends and family, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Colorado State Patrol (CSP) and statewide law enforcement agencies will ramp up DUI enforcement efforts to keep Colorado roads safe from impaired drivers. Starting Friday, Nov. 17 through Monday, Nov. 27, 111 agencies will participate in the campaign, which could include checkpoints, saturation patrols or an increased number of patrols. During the Thanksgiving long weekend in 2016, there were six fatalities on Colorado roads, one of which involved an impaired driver. The effort is part of CDOT’s ongoing The Heat Is On campaign to enforce Colorado DUI and DWAI laws to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities caused by impaired drivers in Colorado. Last year, 101 law enforcement agencies arrested 522 impaired drivers during the same 10-day enforcement period. “We know Thanksgiving is a time for friends, family and celebration, but we want Colorado’s residents and holiday guests to understand that impaired driving will not be tolerated,” said Darrell Lingk, Director of the Office of Transportation Safety at CDOT. “Make a plan. If you’re going to drink at all, arrange a sober ride home. Otherwise, you put yourself and others at risk.” There are several options available for those you need to find a sober ride home. Ride-hailing services like Lyft, Uber and zTrip connect users directly with a nearby driver. Public transportation is also available across the state. For the first time, the Sawaya Law Firm is offering its “Free Cab Ride Program” on Thanksgiving Day. Good for a one-way ride home on Thursday, Nov. 23 in the Denver metro area, cab users can send their receipts to the Sawaya Law Firm for reimbursement up to $35. For more info, visit: http://bit.ly/2e7kVxF “CSP and local agencies will be active in tracking down as many impaired drivers as possible during this enforcement period,” said Col. Scott Hernandez, Chief of the Colorado State Patrol. “We urge people to wear seat belts, travel safely and consume responsibly. Many people don’t understand that even small amounts of alcohol or marijuana can be dangerous. One irresponsible decision can impact the lives of many.” CDOT recommends personal breathalyzers as a resource for checking your blood alcohol content (BAC) to confirm you are sober before you drive. CDOT’s R-U-Buzzed app is another useful DUI-prevention resource. The app allows users to track their blood alcohol content (BAC) level based on information they enter — weight, gender and the number and type of drinks consumed in a given time. The app compares the user’s estimated BAC with Colorado’s DUI and DWAI laws, and includes a “Back to Zero” estimate, which approximates when the user will be completely sober after they stop drinking. Download the free R-U-Buzzed app for iPhone and Android: onelink.to/r-u-buzzed. The CDOT Highway Safety Office provides funding to Colorado law enforcement for impaired driving enforcement, education and awareness campaigns. The Heat Is On campaign runs throughout the year with 14 specific, high-visibility impaired driving enforcement periods centered on national holidays and large public events. Enforcement periods can include sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols and additional law enforcement on duty dedicated to impaired driving enforcement. More details about the campaign, including impaired driving enforcement plans, arrest totals and safety tips can be found at HeatIsOnColorado.com.

    LOUISVILLE – Marijuana plants and products from Starbuds, whose official name is Citi-Med LLC, has had a health and safety advisory filed against them by several Colorado agencies. The Colorado Department of Revenue, the Colorado Department of Agriculture and the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment have issued the safety advisory due to potentially unsafe pesticide residue on the retail marijuana.

  • Negotiations start for I-25 improvements between Johnstown, Fort CollinsNegotiations start for I-25 improvements between Johnstown, Fort Collins

    DENVER — The Colorado Department of Transportation on Friday said it will begin negotiating with Kraemer North America and Interstate Highway Construction to add an express lane in both directions on Interstate 25 between Johnstown and Fort Collins. Kraemer North America’s headquarters is in Plain, Wis., with a regional office in Castle Rock, and IHC is based in Englewood. The Kraemer/IHC joint venture was on a short list that included Graham-Parsons Transportation Group Joint Venture and Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction Co. LLC. The project includes replacing aging bridges and widening others, creating new pedestrian and bicycle access under I-25 at Kendall Parkway, and connecting the Cache la Poudre River Regional Trail under I-25. “We’ve made a commitment to the community to address the congestion along this stretch of I-25, which will only increase as the population and economy in Northern Colorado continues to boom,” said Johnny Olson, CDOT’s Region 4 Transportation director. “We look forward to getting negotiations behind us to begin delivering on that commitment.” Work is scheduled to begin in 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in late 2021. During construction, motorists can expect two lanes of travel in each direction to remain open during the daytime, with lane closures at night when traffic volumes are lower. Partners in the project include Larimer and Weld counties, the cities of Fort Collins and Loveland, the towns of Berthoud, Johnstown,  Windsor and Timnath, and McWhinney, a Loveland-based real estate development company.   The post Negotiations start for I-25 improvements between Johnstown, Fort Collins appeared first on BizWest.

  • Greeley, Windsor conduct joint study on municipal broadbandGreeley, Windsor conduct joint study on municipal broadband

    GREELEY and WINDSOR — The city of Greeley and the town of Windsor are entering into a joint agreement with NEO Connect to conduct a feasibility study of municipal broadband for the two communities. The study will look at the need, feasibility and market recommendations for providing broadband to residents and businesses in Greeley and Windsor. In the fall of 2016, the Greeley City Council identified broadband as an issue that needed attention. Windsor put the issue in its 2016-18 strategic plan. Earlier this month, Greeley voters overwhelmingly supported the ballot measure that allows Greeley to restore its authority over network infrastructure and provides the opportunity to look into public and private partnerships to improve service. The two municipalities contracted with NEO Connect, based in Glenwood Springs, to identify recommendations for improving broadband availability and speed, as well as what investment is needed to deliver on those improvements. Greeley, Windsor and NEO Connect will also gather community feedback on existing connectivity. There are community outreach meetings scheduled on Nov. 29 throughout the day at Greeley City Hall, as well as a public outreach meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 29 at the Greeley Recreation Center. Windsor is having its public meetings the day before, on Nov. 28. There will be a public meeting at 6 p.m. at the Community Recreation Center. Throughout the day, Windsor officials will meet with the medical community, educators, businesses and entrepreneurs. The feasibility study is expected to be completed May 2018.   The post Greeley, Windsor conduct joint study on municipal broadband appeared first on BizWest.

  • N.Y.-based firm plans flex buildings in Creekside Business ParkN.Y.-based firm plans flex buildings in Creekside Business Park

    LONGMONT — A New York-based development company has submitted plans to the city of Longmont to construct two office/warehouse buildings and a PODs regional facility in the Creekside Business Park in the southeast part of the city. LMO Creekside District LLC, registered to Gary Krupnick, president of WestRac Contracting Corp. in Hauppauge, N.Y., has the vacant land at 2005 and 2025 Pike Road under contract to purchase from WGG Longmont Development LLC, registered to John H. Birkeland, Charles P. Woods, Michael J. Gregoire and Robert C. Goltermann, all of Denver, according to public records. LMO elected to submit an application prior to owning the property because it wants to begin construction as soon as the site plan is approved, according to documents filed with the planning department. LMO wants to build two attached office/warehouse two-story buildings. One would be 23,500 square feet  — 17,500 square feet of warehouse space and 6,000 square feet of office — and the other would be 18,930 square feet — 12,930 square feet of first-floor warehouse space and 6,000 square feet of first and second-floor office space. Both buildings will be 35 feet tall. Both buildings feature loading and unloading docks at the rear. The exterior architecture is designed to incorporate local stone, rough-sawn heavy timber, rustic metal paneling and architectural glass. Two illuminated timber and metal roofed canopies will mark the building entrances. As is required by the city of Longmont, 20 percent of the site will be open space. The PODS facility would include a 45-foot tall industrial/office space building with a footprint of 106,300 square feet and 128,100 square feet of floor area space.  Within the building, there would be 23,075 square feet of Class A office space on the north end facing Pike Road.  The rest of the square footage would be used to store the portable storage units. Tetra Tech, an engineering consultant firm in Boulder, is shepherding the plans through the planning process on behalf of LMO.

  • Door to Door Organics abruptly shuts downDoor to Door Organics abruptly shuts down

    LOUISVILLE — Door to Door Organics is no longer in business, according to a letter to its customers posted to its website on Friday. The 20-year company cited funding and recent events as reasons it was abruptly shuttering. “In the end it’s hard to point to one thing that led us to this conclusion,” the letter states. “Ultimately timing of recent events in our industry and the impact that had on our funding prospects were not in our favor with the ultimate result being no path forward.” The news comes just a month-and-a-half after Door to Door launched a curated meal plan for customers. “We want to make it easy to discover and expand the breadth of our catalog,” CEO Mike Demko told BizWest at the time of the announcement. “So far, we’re seeing great growth.” Demko also attended BizWest’s natural product CEO roundtable on Tuesday. He did not mention the company’s impending closure. When Demko spoke to BizWest in October, he discussed plans to roll out the meal plan in markets beyond its initial launch on the East Coast. Colorado was one of the states the service was supposed to be in next. They were also looking at adding to its recipe database. The letter announcing the closure discusses Door to Door’s history as a solution for delivering organic produce and products to customers. It also acknowledges that many customers were counting on Door to Door for the holidays. “We are also very mindful of the timing of this announcement,” the letter says. “We know many of you had counted on next week’s deliveries for your Thanksgiving meal. We sincerely apologize that we are unable to meet your family’s needs on this occasion. So, as we shutter our doors we say thanks and wish you and yours Good Food shared with family and friends.” Door to Door Organics did not immediately respond to requests for more information.   The post Door to Door Organics abruptly shuts down appeared first on BizWest.

        LOVELAND, Colo. The first paved trail connecting Loveland and Fort Collins – and each city’s extensive trail network – is now open to the public. Today elected officials and staff from Larimer County, City of Loveland and City of Fort Collins gathered at a section of the new trail south of Carpenter Road to cut the ribbon and welcome people to the new trail. After the ribbon cutting, several of them hopped on bikes for a tour of the 2-mile, multi-use trail. “This is a great project that highlights how Fort Collins, Larimer County and Loveland have worked together to provide great recreational opportunities for citizens,” Larimer County Commissioner Tom Donnelly said. The Colorado Front Range Trail – Loveland to Fort Collins Connection runs between Lemay Avenue and Timberline Road on the east side of the cities. From south to north, it extends from Loveland’s Recreation Trail just west of Boyd Lake State Park to the City of Fort Collins’ Fossil Creek Trail at Carpenter Road. A partnership among Larimer County, Loveland and Fort Collins will manage the $1.2 million trail. By using this new trail connection, people can go from the 35 miles of paved trails in Fort Collins’ system to the 18 miles of trails in Loveland’s system without hopping off their bikes or getting in a vehicle. The trail is open to foot traffic and non-motorized bicycles. The two cities first conceived of the idea for the trail in 2002, identifying it as a possible segment of the larger Front Range Trail system, which will extend from New Mexico to Wyoming. The Colorado Front Range Trail Loveland to Fort Collins Connection remains a potential segment of this larger, statewide trail system, depending on that trail system’s final alignment.

  • What Colorado’s proposal for Amazon HQ2 means for Front RangeWhat Colorado’s proposal for Amazon HQ2 means for Front Range

    DENVER — The Colorado Office of Economic Development & International Trade and the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp. have released a redacted version of their response to Amazon’s request for proposals for potential sites for its second North American headquarters. The submitted proposal is on behalf of all of Colorado, and particularly highlights the nine-county region that Metro Denver EDC covers, which includes 70 communities. The 77-page document — which may be considered concise compared to what some cities submitted but was based on research that showed that Amazon valued brevity — breaks down place, talent, accessibility, business ethos and positioning for the future as reasons Amazon should select the Metro Denver region. When it comes to potential sites Amazon could select, were it to choose Colorado, no one site was emphasized over any other site. About 30 sites in the region are available, although eight are seen as particularly good fits for Amazon. “It’s not for us to say where Amazon should be,” Metro Denver EDC CEO J.J. Ament told stakeholders and reporters at a briefing Thursday morning. “We want to let Amazon choose.” Which sites Amazon may choose from is still a mystery, however. The information was redacted from the proposal because it’s proprietary information, Ament said. The idea is that to release which sites are being considered to the public would run the risk of Colorado showing its hand to competitors, exposing Amazon’s thought process to its competitors and would put the sites themselves in jeopardy against other development projects. Under the “Positioning Amazon HQ2 for the Future” section of the proposal, there are nearly 12 pages of redacted information. In the “Sites for Amazon HQ2 & Follow-On Investments” section there is a list of 15 redacted items. What the proposal does highlight in particular is place and talent. The area’s strong outdoor recreation scene, Denver Startup Week and 30 research labs and institutions are mentioned, as is the area’s 12 higher education institutions and more than 17 healthcare locations. FasTracks, the $7.4 billion comprehensive transit plan that added light and commuter rail, is mentioned as a strength. The report compares Denver International Airport, which has an economic impact of  $26 billion each year, to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, where Amazon’s original headquarters is located. There are more flights from Denver to New York and Washington, D.C., than there are from Seattle, and flights from Denver are cheaper to San Francisco and Washington, D.C. As to talent, the proposal mentions how Colorado has the second-largest aerospace economy in the U.S., more than 18,000 employees in the bioscience sector and is fourth in the nation for clean-tech employment and third in the nation for high-tech workers per capita. In fact, based on the jobs associated with what Amazon HQ2 would require, there are nearly 140,000 jobs already in the state in those skilled roles. The region is 54 percent above the national average.

  • Consumer Advisory: Watch out for flood-damaged used cars.Consumer Advisory: Watch out for flood-damaged used cars.

    Months after hurricanes, these autos are now likely hitting Colorado. DENVER – Remember Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma? Even though these storms hit U.S. shores months ago, here in Colorado we could start seeing one of the side effects of the storm – flood-damaged vehicles may now be rolling into the state. After this summer’s hurricanes, thousands of submerged vehicles were abandoned. According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), there have been numerous reports of flood-damaged vehicles from the Gulf Coast states being distributed across the country through car wholesalers. According to Skyler McKinley at AAA Colorado, that flood inventory of cars is probably just now reaching Colorado. While a car may look perfectly fine on the surface, there could be hidden defects. Long-term effects from flood damage can affect the vehicle for years, compromising a car’s computer and safety mechanisms, which pose significant safety hazards. Also, your insurance company may not insure or fully insure a vehicle previously determined to be a total loss. As November is Colorado Consumer Protection Month, the Colorado Division of Insurance, part of the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), offers these tips to help you spot a flood-damaged vehicle. Check the titleColorado requires a salvage title if a vehicle is totaled as a result of a flood. However, some wholesalers may intentionally transfer titles to avoid having the damage noted. Flooded vehicles are often declared a total loss by the insurer, at which point the vehicle should be issued a salvage title. A salvage title indicates the vehicle was deemed a total loss by an insurance company. These vehicles are usually sold at a salvage auction for parts. However, these vehicles can be legally resold if the flood damage is declared on the title. And if the seller says they’ve lost the title, do not purchase the vehicle. How to avoid purchasing a previously flooded vehicleThe National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS) was created to prevent the concealment of flood damage and other vehicle histories.  NMVTIS is overseen by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and offers information to help protect you from title fraud and unsafe vehicles. This is a nationwide database and the only one to which all junk and salvage yards, insurance carriers, salvage auctions and other businesses are required to report total loss and junk/salvage vehicles. The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) also maintains a database, VINCheck program, where consumers can enter a vehicle identification number to check for a salvage (or stolen) vehicle. It should be noted that these reports only monitor vehicles that were insured by participating companies. Do your own inspection Take the time to scrutinize the car. Check the engine for a high water mark on the block or radiator, which is a clear indication that the car has been flooded. Look for rust or corrosion on wires and other components under the hood. Be suspicious if the carpet smells damp or of mildew. Be leery of new carpet in older vehicles. Flooded vehicles often end up at car auctions. Shop at a reputable dealership or get a full inspection prior to purchasing a vehicle. Ask questionsBefore buying a car, ask the dealer for a report with a detailed history of the car. If you’re not purchasing the vehicle from a dealer, you can get a vehicle history report. Comprehensive vehicle history reports are produced with the vehicle identification number (VIN) and are available for a fee from a variety of sources, including the following.

  • Recruiting Cameron Pass Nordic Rangers for 2017/2018 SeasonRecruiting Cameron Pass Nordic Rangers for 2017/2018 Season

    Fort Collins, Colo. – The Canyon Lakes Ranger District is looking for volunteers to ski or snowshoe this winter in the busy Cameron Pass area, where 32 miles of trail can see over 300 skiers a day on a weekend. Volunteers ski or snowshoe “with a purpose,” helping the Forest Service educate winter visitors and provide winter use statistics. To volunteer, participants take part in a minimum of four days patrolling and attend Forest Service-provided training. The kick-off meeting is Nov. 15 at 6:30 p.m. at 2150 Centre Ave., Building E, in Fort Collins. The required classroom training is Nov. 29, 6-9 p.m. and the required field training is Dec. 2 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information or to RSVP, call Kristy Wumkes at 970-295-6721 or email kwumkes@fs.fed.us. Along with a general introduction to the program, the kick-off also introduces potential new members to many of our partner-organizations, such as Jax Outdoor Gear and Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and to some of the returning Nordic rangers. The Cameron Pass Nordic Ranger program began in 1992. Volunteers assist the Forest Service by skiing or snowshoeing area trails to provide safety, trail, and low-impact backcountry use information to winter enthusiasts; help maintain area ski trails and trailheads for safety; and gather visitor use information to aid in Forest Service planning. Some of the Nordic rangers work as a winter trail crew to help keep the trails cleared of downed trees and limbs, install signs, and shovel paths to the restrooms. Last year, 90 enthusiastic winter recreationists volunteered! This popular area includes trails that border Highway 14 between Chambers Lake and Cameron Pass. The area receives enough snow to ski before many others and snow often remains after other areas have lost their snow cover. For this reason, the number of winter recreationists at Cameron Pass continues to grow. Many of the trails are in the Rawah and Neota Wilderness areas, where routes can be challenging. Backcountry skiing also includes risks inherent with winter conditions in the mountains, including extreme cold. These are some of the key reasons volunteers in the area are so valuable to its many users, especially those with little winter sports experience. We’re offering mini-sessions on outdoor preparedness, too: What to bring in your winter day pack Using SPOTS and radios for safety What does the winter trail crew do? Meet the Mentoring volunteers Volunteers can sign up for the two required trainings at the kick off.

    Fort Collins, CO – The City of Fort Collins Park Planning and Development Department took home two Mayor Awards presented by the Commission on Disability (COD) last month. The Commission on Disability serves as an advisor to the Fort Collins City Council on issues relating to citizens with disabilities. Every year the COD recognizes individuals, businesses, and agencies in the Fort Collins community who work to enrich the lives of people with disabilities, presented by the Mayor of Fort Collins. The Park Planning and Development team was awarded the Mayor’s Partnership Award which recognizes the entire department, for their work in the installation of adult changing tables at two community parks. The first adult changing table was installed at Spring Canyon Park’s Inspiration Playground family restroom. Fort Collins Girl Scout Troop #71683, Foothills Gateway, Community Foundation, and The Arc of Larimer County donated funds to purchase the table. Craig Kisling received the Mayor’s Employee of the Year Award which recognizes an individual who embraces his/her daily call to impactful, life-changing work for and with people with disabilities. Craig spearheaded the effort to install adult changing tables in both the men’s and women’s restrooms at the soon to open, Twin Silo Park. Craig has been with the City of Fort Collins Park Planning and Development department for the past 15 years, and has worked on projects such as Oak Street Plaza, Registry Park, Soft Gold Park, and the Community Gardens. The installation of the powered height adjustable adult changing tables promote inclusion and allow people with disabilities and their caretakers lead more fulfilling lives. The Park Planning and Development team is happy to add to the inclusivity of Fort Collins, and will continue to support inclusivity initiatives along with the COD in the future.

  • CDOT to open US 34 Canyon to all traffic for Thanksgiving WeekendCDOT to open US 34 Canyon to all traffic for Thanksgiving Weekend

    LARIMER COUNTY – The Colorado Department of Transportation and Kiewit Infrastructure Co. will open US 34 for travel between Loveland and County Road 43 for access to Estes Park over the holiday weekend, but drivers are still encouraged to use Highway 36 into Estes Park to avoid delays. The highway will be open to all motorists (with or without residential permits) at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 22, and will remain open until 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 26. Because the highway is currently a one-lane road for 11 miles, travel will be slow on US 34 and drivers will need to follow a pilot car for their safety. These lane restrictions and the anticipated extra traffic on the road for the holidays could mean delays exceeding one hour, especially on Friday. Motorists should plan for extra travel time if they plan to use US 34, and cyclists should plan not to ride in the busy one lane corridor, for their safety. We encourage those drivers who can, to still use the US 36 and CO 66 detour for quicker access to and from Estes Park and Loveland. The section of US 34 between mile points 72 – 74, west of Drake, will remain closed where crews are repairing the highway near the landslide. All through-traffic from Loveland to Estes Park will need to use Larimer County Road 43. This opening is part of CDOT’s promise to reduce the inconvenience to canyon residents and nearby communities as much as possible. Drivers should remember to drive slowly and be prepared to stop at the single-lane section. Following the holiday weekend, US 34 will again close to through-traffic until Dec. 23 when the highway will open for Christmas. This opening will continue until Jan. 2. Further details will be announced closer to these dates. Following the holiday season, the highway will close until just before Memorial Day 2018. To travel between Estes Park and Loveland drivers should use the detour on US 36 and CO 66. The only access on US 34 will be for canyon residents and emergency services through a permit process. US 34 Big Thompson Canyon’s roads and bridges were heavily damaged during the 2013 floods with many homes damaged and over 100 air lifted evacuations.  The canyon and its residents also suffered from flooding in 1976. As a result of these two events CDOT has been studying the hydraulic flow of the river in the canyon and its impact on the road and bridges along its path while looking for safety improvements and resiliency solutions to prevent/protect against future flood events.
