Two Hunters Park
During Wednesday night’s meeting the Board of Trustees took two separate actions to continue the progress of Two Hunters Park in the Oak Meadows neighborhood. This park is being funded by Two Hunters Park, LLC, which is managed by Erin Martinez, and will be a peaceful park honoring the lives of Mark Martinez and Joey Irwin who died on April 17, 2017.
The first was an ordinance approving documents, agreements, and deeds necessary for the conveyance of the land in Oak Meadows to the Town of Firestone, the donation of funds for the construction of Two Hunters Park, and terms for the continuing use of the properties as a peaceful park.
The second was a resolution approving an agreement with American Civil Constructors for the construction of Two Hunters Parks. It is anticipated that work will begin on Two Hunters Park this spring, with the project being complete this fall.
Board Supports Grant Application for Town Hall Project
The Town of Firestone has applied for a $1 million grant from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) Energy and Mineral Impact Assistance Program for the Town Hall project. The Town’s application was submitted on February 3, 2020, and was accepted for consideration on April 2, 2020. If the Town is selected to continue on, it is anticipated that the next steps will be meetings with applicants, hearings in July, and notice of award in August. During Wednesday night’s meeting, the Board approved a resolution that demonstrates that the Board of Trustees believe it is in the best interest of the Town to seek grant assistance to help fund the project.
The Department of Local Affairs’ (DOLA) Energy and Mineral Impact Assistance Fund (EIAF) program was created to assist political subdivisions that are socially and/or economically impacted by the development, processing, or energy conversion of minerals and mineral fuels. Funds come from the State severance tax on energy and mineral production and from a portion of the State’s share of royalties paid to the federal government for mining and drilling of minerals and mineral fuels on federally owned land.
