A Public Input Meeting was held for the USAF Academy Area on Thursday, February 23, 2017, at Library 21c from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The purpose of this meeting was to:

1. Gather public input on the recommended strategies developed at this point in time
2. Provide the public with information about the issues covered by the JLUS
3. Encourage the public to stay involved and provide details on how they can continue to
provide input for this study.

Estimated attendance was approximately 100 people. Stakeholders that joined this event included local elected officials, City of Colorado Springs staff working on Plan COS (Comprehensive Plan Update), Larry Small from the Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control and Greenway District, CONO, and officials from the USAF Academy. Representatives from working groups attended and volunteered to assist with answering citizen’s questions. The information stations (see attached display boards) were designed to both inform citizens and ask for specific input on the draft recommended strategies and other useful input to guide staff on further issue research.
