The Sand Creek Regional Greenway Partnership has the vision and the capacity to take a "ditch" parallel to an interstate highway and create a riparian experience for the urban cyclist or walker. Down by the creek one cannot hear the cars and over-the-road truck trailers traveling the six lanes of asphalt at maximum speed and minimum environmental consciousness. I was invited to be a board member because of the office I held - a member of Denver City Council. Being on the Sand Creek Board was an opportunity, rare with regard to multiple crammed calendars, to meet with my counterparts in the three county region. We had lots to talk about. Lots in common and important differences. This tri-county governance model that works in harmony for the common goal of stream and corridor enhancement has attracted the funding from the national government to do more work that is difficult because the organization has proven that it can work harmoniously. The Secretary of the Interior, Secretary Ken Salazar, has noticed and found this organization to be a vehicle for even more and very visionary work.
