Alameda Gateway Community Association receives grant

Jefferson County Public Health money to go toward installation of bike racks, lockers

Posted

A $1,000 Jefferson County Public Health 2018 Quick Win grant will help the Alameda Gateway Community Association purchase and install bike racks and/or lockers along west Alameda Avenue.

Funding for this program comes from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment CCPD Grants Program and is used to support the implementation of projects designed to reduce barriers to active living and increase access to healthy food in Jefferson County.

The Alameda project is expected to increase cycling by youth and adults.

“Active living is key to good health for all ages,” said Tom Quinn, Alameda Gateway Community Association executive director. “Increasing access to bike racks and bike lockers will encourage cycling for recreation and commuting on the Alameda corridor. We are grateful to Jeffco Public Health and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for giving us this opportunity.” 

For more information on this project, contact the executive director of the community association, Tom Quinn, at tom@alamedagateway.com. For questions regarding the Quick Win Grant program, contact Ashley Moore, public information officer, at amoore@jeffco.us.
