Stormwater Master Plan

Weigh in on the stormwater master plan May 11

The Town of Estes Park encourages community members to weigh in on the developing stormwater master plan at a public meeting May 11 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Rooms 202 and 203 of Town Hall, 170 MacGregor Ave.  The plan, currently in early development, will identify problem drainage areas and lay out a path for the Town to complete future drainage improvement projects. Anderson Consulting Engineers will provide an overview presentation at 5:30 p.m. and will then be available to discuss areas of drainage concerns presented on maps of the Estes Valley watersheds, including how they may relate to adjacent private property. The consultant will also request input from residents on any other drainage concerns. Public input is critical at this point in the planning process.


Stormwater Master Plan Project

The Town of Estes Park's stormwater master plan will identify problem drainage areas and lay out a path for the Town to complete future drainage improvement projects. This plan is a significant first step toward a safer and more sustainable Estes Park. It has been a critical need for Estes Park for many years, and this was never more evident than during the 2013 flood. Many of Estes Park’s existing drainage channels, inlets, culverts and ponds were inadequate to convey the flows that resulted from that rainfall event. The Town suffered significant damage from which it is taking years to recover.
