Mesa Springs association to hold first meeting at new locale

       The Mesa Springs Community Association will meet for the first time at its new location Tuesday, March 10, at 7 p.m., with City Council member Scott Hente as guest speaker.
       The site is the dining room of the Mercy Center chapel at 1440 Cooper St., between West Columbia and West Buena Ventura streets.
       “It's a way to give back to our community,” said Mercy Center Executive Director Timothy Fogle, who is letting the association use the 60-capacity room at no charge for its occasional meetings.
       President George Gravenstein said he was grateful for the opportunity. With the scheduled elimination this year of city Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding, the Mesa Springs group no longer can afford the cost of renting the Pike Elementary School library, where it had met for several years.
       The association represents about 700 households in the Mesa Springs area, which is west of I-25, north of Uintah Street, east of the Sondermann Park/private open space area and south of Fillmore Street. The association's meetings are free and open to the public.
       The association also has recently posted an Internet website through the “neighborhoodlink” site. For more information, call Gravenstein at 260-6687.
