Play East Greeley Parks Project

As part of the awarding process, a weeklong study completed in February of 2017 by the Urban Land Institute (ULI), established that the East Memorial neighborhood in Greeley was indeed an opportunity to change existing physical, socioeconomic and environmental barriers to create a stronger, healthier community. The Urban Land Institute is a global, member-driven organization that studies and gives advice about responsible urban development to cities and communities looking to thrive – a challenge the City of Greeley is excited to take on.

The winning 3-year project calls for a resident outreach and engagement process, as well as the development of additional programming involving not only the undeveloped East Memorial Natural Area, but also adjacent public areas including Balsam Park, East Memorial Park and Delta Park.

Plan de Mejoramiento del vecindario East Memorial

Como parte del proceso de otorgación de la beca, en febrero del 2017 el Urban Land Institute (ULI) completo un estudio de una semana de largo, afirmando que el vecindario East Memorial de Greeley era realmente una gran oportunidad de cambiar barreras existentes físicas, socioeconómicas y de medio ambiente para así crear una comunidad fuerte y saludable. El Urban Land Institute es una organización global, impulsada por miembros que estudian y aconsejan sobre desarrollos urbanos responsables a ciudades y comunidades buscando prosperidad – reto excitante y aceptado por la ciudad de Greeley.

Este proyecto de 3 años, entre otras cosas, hace un llamado a residentes del área a que no solo participen, pero que también se envuelvan en el proceso. Tanto en el desarrollo de programas para el área de aventura natural de East Memorial, así como áreas públicas de los parques Balsam, East Memorial y Delta.
