Economic Playbook Survey Open:

Help guide Parker’s economic future by completing the Parker Economic Playbook community survey through March 17. 

The Parker Economic Playbook (PEP) is a strategic plan and will include recommendations to guide Town policies. It will promote economic resiliency, expand employment opportunities, and guide us forward for the next decade and beyond. Residents, business owners, and community members are encouraged to provide input and opinions on what could make Parker an even better place to live, work and play! In short, it’ll help us add some PEP to Parker’s economy!

Veterans Memorial Banner Program Returns: 

The Veterans Memorial Banner Program is coming back to Living Wheel Park this year to recognize and honor Parker residents who served our country in the military and have passed on.

Each banner will honor one veteran and include their name, branch of service and photo. Banners will be displayed on a street light in or near Living Wheel Park from approximately May 1 through July 4 to remind the community of our veterans’ dedication to our country.

Visit the program webpage for additional details and to submit an application. 

Where to Find Snow Resources:

March can be one of the snowiest months of the year, so it’s a good time to read up on Town storm response. 

The Snow and Ice Control Policy, Snow Removal Priority System Map, and other related resources are listed on the Snow Operations webpage.  

And as a reminder, Priority 3 – Residential Roads, are only cleared if six or more inches of snow fall.
