Future of Fountain, Monument creeks presented to Colorado Springs city council


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Can you imagine having more public access to the city’s two main creeks, being able to sit comfortably along with them, and even play in the water? That could happen shortly for Fountain and Monument creeks in Colorado Springs. 

A group of community leaders have spent the past year creating a future vision for the creeks flowing through and near downtown. 

The vision includes improving stormwater capacity, water quality, providing recreational opportunities, and providing areas for development. 

The vision called the “COS Creek Plan,” was generally supported by the City Council during Monday’s work session. 

The next step is for the city to turn the vision into a master plan, then determine costs, funding and timetables.
