At this time, based on a result of the soil samples conducted by the Jefferson Parkway Public Highway Authority (JPPHA), there are no on-going activities to further the selection of a private partner for the Jefferson Parkway. As stated in material distributed by the JPPHA, they await the lead of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment on next steps regarding public health and safety.
Given the recent test results and the Council’s feedback, the Parkway is not moving forward at this time. There are no ordinances nor resolutions pending in front of the Broomfield City Council.
One remaining issue that is on the table is the costs that have been incurred by the JPPHA on testing of the right-of-way, in response to reservations expressed by Broomfield. At the Council’s direction, staff may prepare a memo to discuss a financial contribution by Broomfield to the JPPHA to cover some portion of the testing costs, this discussion will be held in a public forum.
