**************************

The Washington Park Loop Road Safety Study is being conducted by STREAM Landscape Architecture for Denver Parks & Recreation.

They will hold their next public meeting to present a Draft of their data gathering efforts. They will also present an initial series of Loop Road options and seek input from those attending the meeting.

The Study was initiated by Parks and Recreation at the request of FAN’s; together they chose the STREAM group to develop the Study. The Study started this spring. The purpose of the Study is to find ways to make the Loop Road safer for all Park users. STREAM has now collected data from Loop Road users and from an online survey they developed.

Another public meeting will be this Thursday July 31 at the Platt Park Senior Center at 1500 S. Grant St. from 6 to 8 pm.

This second public meeting by STREAM is to share the analyzed data gathered along with observations and input from Park users. This is our opportunity to listen to the findings, comment and make further inputs on ways to improve the safety of the Loop Road in Washington Park. Please plan to Attend!
