Last meeting at Pike for Mesa Springs group

       The Mesa Springs Community Association will hold its last meeting in the Pike Elementary School library Tuesday, Jan. 13 at 7 p.m.
       A new location for February will be announced at the meeting, according to Association President George Gravenstein. Also planned for the hour-long gathering will be a “housecleaning” discussion as the neighborhood advocacy group continues to adjust to losing Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) support, he said.
       Although appreciative of being able to meet at the school, the association can no longer afford the cost. Through the CDBG program over the last 20 years, the group had received monetary help for such expenses.
       CDBG, a city-run federal program for less affluent neighborhoods, provides public improvements such as sidewalks, curbs and gutters. The last such projects in Mesa Springs were being worked on this winter, Gravenstein said.
       Mesa Springs is a neighborhood of mostly older homes west of I-25 between Uintah and Fillmore streets.
