Improving 88th Avenue in Commerce City

Commerce City
is proposing a widening project and other improvements to E. 88th
Avenue. The works would be taking place between I-76 and Highway 2. The 88th
Avenue project was identified as a priority improvement in the city’s
recently-adopted Irondale Neighborhood and Infrastructure Plan. Funding has
been already identified in the city’s five-year Capital Improvements and
Preservation Plan.

In order to
advance this project, Commerce City authorities held a meeting with the
community. Topics of this open house meeting included existing conditions,
purpose and need, project goals, proposed improvements and project timeline.
During the meeting, the Commerce City neighbors discussed each of those topics
with the project team. Commerce City authorities invite the community to
provide feedback online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/88thAve.

Salvador Hernandez leads MFV-Colorado

Salvador
Hernandez is the new Colorado state director of Mi Familia Vota (MFV).
Hernandez will be working to build Latino political power in the state, which
is home to well over one million Latinos (accounting for at least 21% of the
state population). The life-long Latino advocate will be spearheading
citizenship workshops, driving civic engagement opportunities for the
community, leading advocacy pushes in the state and federal legislature, and
getting out the Latino vote in the 2020 elections and beyond.

Hernandez has
been working as coordinator of MFV’s local office since 2015. He notes that he
will be entering his new role with renewed enthusiasm, “as the new state
director for Colorado, I look forward to continuing the amazing work and legacy
of MFV.  I’ll be focused on increasing
the political strength of the Latino and immigrant communities in Colorado to
achieve social and economic justice. I believe that in order to achieve justice
we must organize our community and hold our elected officials accountable. It
is a privilege for me to be in this position.”
