The Evergreen Economic District (EED), formerly the Downtown Evergreen Economic District, approached the county with a list of safety and connectivity projects throughout the activity centers in Evergreen. Jefferson County staff worked with EED to narrow the project list considering:
- Must be a needed safety improvement
- Will aid in the connectivity of the Evergreen community
- Must be within the existing Jefferson County right-of-way
EED and county staff then prioritized the project by immediate need, impact to the community, design time, and construction feasibility.
