The proposed Jefferson Parkway is high-speed private tollway that extends across Arvada from Broomfield to Hwy 93. Opponents raise concerns about a highway being built through Rocky Flats weapons-grade plutonium contamination east of the former nuclear weapons plant. Please attend this meeting for more information and an opportunity for public comment. Millions of dollars of taxpayer money have already been spent on this project, but no testing has been done along Indiana since the floods of 2013. Adequate testing must be done before this project goes forward. The board went into Executive Session at the end of January's meeting. The public is not allowed to attend the Executive Session part of the meeting.
