Sub-area plan meetings
The city of Arvada is beginning the development of specific area plans for many of the corridors and areas zoned for mixed-use development as part of the new Land Development Code. The areas are important for future redevelopment and the economic stability of the city. The initial area to be considered for these planning efforts will be the New Town area south of Olde Town along Wadsworth Boulevard and Bypass to I-70. The first open house for the New Town Sub-Area Plan will be 5 -7 p.m. on Sept. 24, on the top deck of the Olde Town Transit Hub, located at 5575 Vance Street . Social distancing protocols will be in place and face coverings will be required to attend the event. Following the event, opportunities to provide comments will also be available on this web page.

17th annual cemetery tour
The Arvada Historical Society is celebrating the sesquicentennial anniversary of three major Arvada events this year. Those three events — the Colorado Central Railroad rolled through town, the naming of Arvada and the founding of the Methodist Church — will serve as the themes for this year’s Arvada Cemetery Tour.
The tours will take place at the Arvada Cemetery Tour, 5581 Independence Street, on Sept. 26, 1-3 p.m. Timed tours will start at 1:00, 1:30, 2:00, 2:30 and 3 p.m., limited to 20 participants per session. Face masks and social distancing (as mandated) are required.
Participants will hear from early residents like Mary Ann Wadsworth (who named the town), a railroad executive from the early railroad days, and other early history contributors. Ten dollar tickets can be purchased on site at the start of each session (children 12 and under are free).
For further information please call 720-237-1556 or check www.arvadahistory.org for any cancellations due to COVID restrictions.
