Wheat Ridge City Manager Patrick Goff gave the annual State of the City presentation to the Wheat Ridge Business Association in early April, setting out the priorities and expected progress in development for the coming year.

  If you missed it, you can get an outline of the city’s priority projects and development in the works through a PowerPoint presentation available on the city’s website, at www.ci.wheatridge.co.us/121/City-Manager – click on the “State of the City Presentation” link in the last paragraph.

  The city’s “priority strategies” for 2018 are: to update the Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy (NRS); develop an I-70/Kipling Corridor strategy to address crime, aesthetics, and redevelopment opportunities; finalize design for 38th Ave streetscape; work with CDOT to prioritize I-70/Kipling improvements; and set a policy on “shared housing.”

  Outlines and artist renderings of developments around Ward Station, the terminus of the G Line, are included in the presentation.

  An update on the four projects funded by the city’s voter-approved “Investing 4 the Future” initiative is also included.
