Clifton Community Campus

A community campus that will meet the needs and better serve residents in Clifton.

Goals
To promote a better quality of life through accessible services and resources while connecting community members. (Other: public safety, recreation, and health equity.)



 

 

Public engagement is critical in developing the campus. The early stages should give ample opportunity for residents to give input.

  • Agencies will work on a joint PowerPoint presentation to share at the public meeting on Aug. 19.
    • Partners will be responsible for managing each of their respective agency stations and will provide their own comment cards and materials as well as a Spanish-speaking translator.
    • Key messaging and questions.
      • We are here to listen.
      • We are in the early stages — the location is still a hayfield. Nothing is a done deal without the neighborhood’s input.
      • Strong processes and active partnerships matter when it comes to strengthening our community.
      • We work together with our residents and businesses to create a better Mesa County.
      • We can leverage our strengths to tackle our challenges before they become problems. We can lead and innovate with the services and resources that Mesa County provides at the campus.
        • We do not have all the details — this is what we have for now, what do you think?
        • What services would you like to see?
        • What services do you not have access to that you need in Clifton?
