Officials seek public feedback on “Get Outdoors Greeley” plan
City of Greeley Natural Areas & Trails Division staff began developing a five-year Strategic Plan for Natural Areas, Trails, and Open Lands; community feedback is an essential piece to this process.
Resident input will help guide the direction of the development of programs to help families access nature close to home, protect areas of ecological significance, and build additional recreational opportunities.
This strategic process began in June, 2020. A diverse steering committee of city staff, non-profit, academic and community representation developed the “Get Outdoors Greeley” draft. City officials want public input to consider and include in the final plan.

CDPHE main website refreshed
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is pleased to announce the launch of its newly redesigned main website at cdphe.colorado.gov, which continues to be separate from its COVID-19 website. The new site features a more modern design, improved navigation, and improved user experience to help local public health departments, stakeholders, and Coloradans find the essential public health information and resources they need.
“The launch of the website is just the beginning of a process to address our users’ needs. To improve the user experience, we will continue to work toward clearer messaging, more engaging content, simpler processes, and improved accessibility,” said Drew Kartos, webmaster, CDPHE.
The First Family is celebrating their fourth Christmas in the White House. This year’s theme, “America the Beautiful,” is a tribute to the majesty of our great Nation. From coast to coast, our country is blessed with boundless natural wonders. The timeless treasures represented in this year’s holiday showcase remind us of the true American spirit. Together, we celebrate this land we are all proud to call home.
Governor Polis and First Gentleman Reis learned that they have tested positive for COVID-19. They are both asymptomatic, feeling well, and will continue to isolate in their home.
“Marlon and I are feeling well so far, and are in good spirits. No person or family is immune to this virus. I urge every Coloradan to practice caution, limit public interactions, wear a mask in public, stay six feet from others, and wash your hands regularly,” said Governor Polis.
Statement about holiday travel from Council President Gilmore: While we all miss the ability to see our friends and family during the holidays, travel is strongly discouraged by all the leading health experts. The most recent health order from the State of Colorado asks that travel be limited to “necessary travel” for critical government and business purposes only.
I strongly encourage all Denver residents to stay home for the holidays. Protect yourselves and the people you care about by continuing to diligently follow all safety guidelines.
Mayor Michael Hancock made the personal decision to travel for Thanksgiving. I expect the mayor will follow and comply with the directives he issued to all City of Denver employees and quarantine for 14 days upon his return.
