United Way seeks citizen ideas on local infrastructure issues at meeting July 10

       The Pikes Peak United Way (PPUW) will host a meeting Friday, July 10 to hear citizen feedback on local infrastructure.
       The informal session will be in the community room at the Gold Hill Police Station, 955 W. Moreno Ave., from 9 to 10:30 a.m.
       According to the United Way website, the meeting is an outgrowth of its ongoing Cradle to Career effort, in which the nonprofit agency has hosted “more than 50 community conversations where individuals voiced their hopes and aspirations for our community.”
       In a press release, the United Way states that in these conversations “the topic of infrastructure (e.g., roads and potholes, and stormwater) arose as an important issue in the community. As a result, PPUW is holding a round of deeper-dive conversations on this topic in order to be intentional and strategic in our ongoing effort to create a better future for people in the Pikes Peak region.”
       For more information, contact Melissa Chizmar of PPUW at 457-1322 or melissa@ppunitedway.org .
