Glenwood Springs Mayor Michael Gamba read a proclamation on behalf of the entire City Council at the City Council meeting.
Voters approved the two A&I ballot measures on Election Day.

Shop Local this Holiday Season!

By shopping locally on Small Business Saturday (November 26, 2016) and throughout this holiday season, money is returned to our community through sales tax and we continue to support our healthy mix of small businesses and chains. Tax money is what keeps cities going, roads functioning, the Community Center open and other services operating. When you shop locally, you can also find everything from artisan-made items to gift certificates to restaurants and attractions. Shop Local. It makes cents!

Grinches are Real - Protect your Purchases

Every year during the holiday shopping season, people suffer losses from thieves taking advantage of their habits. Shoppers should never leave mounds of presents in their cars when shopping, but rather take them home before making a fresh run at the stores! Thieves will cruise parking areas and look for unattended cars with packages and bags, then enter and steal those gifts. It only takes seconds for a thief that is practiced in vehicle entry to pop a window or a door and take all the goodies inside. So when your gifts are too much to carry, please take them somewhere secure first, then shop on!!

Starting on November 28, 2016, the southbound left-turn lane from the Grand Avenue Bridge onto 8th Street will be CLOSED as construction starts on the traffic bridge walls near the pedestrian shopping plaza between 7th and 8th streets. Southbound motorists coming from the Grand Avenue Bridge will be able to access streets east of Grand Avenue via 9th Street.

The Grand Avenue Bridge project is a $125 million bridge replacement project in the heart of Glenwood Springs. The 30-month project will be complete in June of 2018.
