Community Revitalization Partnership (CRP) Program

The Town of Fraser has received a grant from the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) to participate in a Community Revitalization Partnership Program. DOLA and Downtown Colorado Inc. have teamed up to coordinate this program, which involves a two-day technical assistance visit to the town.

The program is designed to provide downtown revitalization and economic development assistance to Colorado communities. Focusing on current conditions in the business district, a team of five to seven professionals will evaluate the community and facilitate focus groups to provide information about the strengths and opportunities of the business district as well as to create the foundation from which a work plan can be developed.

The CRP team’s schedule includes a detailed tour of the community and a full day of focus groups on Tuesday, Aug. 17, with local government representatives, local organization representatives, business owners, property owners and residents. The two-day visit will conclude with a presentation to the public at the Town Board meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 18. The team will provide an assessment of the community and action steps.

Residents, property owners and business owners are strongly urged to participate. If you are interested in participating, contact Catherine Trotter at 970-726-5491 x209 or ctrotter@town.fraser.co.us.
