Commerce City, Colorado
AwardsCCASLA MERIT AWARD FOR PLANNING & LAND STEWARDSHIP DESIGNATION 2001
For years Sand Creek, a major drainage way running through Commerce City, was associated with heavy industrial dumping and pollution. Few knew of its historical and regional significance along with the Creek’s diverse wildlife and natural resources. The goal of the project was to transform Sand Creek into a major recreational and natural resource amenity for the people of Commerce City, as well as work with other communities along Sand Creek to create an outstanding regional asset. Since completing the master plan, DHM Design continued in the redevelopment of Sand Creek. The team has provided services for design, construction documentation, and construction administration for bridges, overlooks, planting and restoration projects along the greenway.
