During Tuesday night's meeting, the Board of Trustees recognized the accomplishments of the Erie Tiger Hawks Robotics Team at the Vex IQ competition. The Tiger Hawks were Colorado State Vex IQ Champions in 2017 and 2018. The Tiger Hawks went on to compete at Vex Worlds in April 2018. The Tiger Hawks placed 3rd in the Robot Skills Challenge, 2nd in their division and 2nd in the world in the Teamwork Challenge.
During Tuesday night's meeting, the Town’s consultant for the I-25 & Erie Parkway Master Plan Project provided the Board of Trustees with an update and a presentation of preliminary options.
This Master Plan covers the 1,280 acres of land located at the northwest corner of I-25 and Erie Parkway. The Town’s intent is to create a regionally-scaled retail and employment center at Erie’s eastern gateway servicing the Northern Colorado marketplace. A key requirement for the project is the establishment of a truly unique place; one that will provide for the integration of land uses, multiple modes of transportation, incorporation of unique architectural and sustainable elements, and the efficient use of both public and private spaces.
