Granada Board CDOT Signage and Town Water

Mary Root, Prowers County Land Use Administrator met with the Granada Town Board during last Wednesday’s monthly meeting, June 1. The discussion centered on the best location to erect signs in the town to direct visitors to various attractions. Granada is one of the four gateway communities in southeast Colorado, including Eads, Springfield and Fowler and CDOT is reviewing the best possible choices to set up highway signage. The only viable location for traffic along highways 50 and 385 is the town complex lawn. The site provides a rest stop off the highway with ample parking, proximity to bathrooms, restaurants, gas and a convenience store. CDOT will provide the funding and make their selections based on presentations.

Businesswoman Dee Melgosa met with the board to discuss creation of a group of interested citizens to raise funds to make repairs to the Granada Cemetery. Board member Shannon Venturi said the town is still waiting on pump parts for the water tank. Residents are continuing to receive their drinking water through a gravity flow and pressure is still sufficient for everyone’s needs. Venturi said the replacement parts need to fit a pump that’s over 30 years old, and there’s some difficulty tracking them down.
