Passing this on (for folks OUTSIDE of Jamestown):

Dear Unincorporated Boulder County Resident,

The purpose of this email is to ascertain what needs unincorporated Boulder County private property owners may still have with flood debris cleanup and removal. This information will be used to help guide the next stage in the Flood Debris Cleanup (FDC) project which is expected to begin sometime in the spring of 2015. Disposal costs associated with FDC debris removal are covered by the FDC program and are not charged to the property owner.

If you, or any unincorporated Boulder County property owner you know, is still in need of flood debris removal of any kind, please email Mark Wesson at mwesson@bouldercounty.org ASAP with a brief description of the type of debris, a best estimate of volume (i.e. 100 cubic yards), and whether or not heavy machinery will be necessary. FDC supervisors retain the right to determine if debris exceeds program capabilities.

Finally, it is important to note that property owners who have received direct financial assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) specifically for debris removal, are not eligible for the FDC program. All other unincorporated Boulder County residential and commercial properties with remaining debris will be invited to apply as the program resumes in the spring of 2015.

We wish you all the best in your continued recovery and a happy and healthy holiday season.

Thank you to everyone who brought items to send overseas to Afghanistan to LTC Utterback and his troops! (This National Guard crew helped JT and the surrounding areas with rescue efforts during the flood - original post is copied below) We've got two full boxes to send. Nice work!

(If you've got something you've been intending to drop by the Town Hall, you've got until noon today!)


Original message:

Have you been wishing you had the opportunity to further thank the National Guard troops that helped out with the town's evacuation? Here's your chance!

We were recently passed a note regarding an opportunity to ship some holiday items to troops overseas. This particular project happens to be directed toward Lieutenant Colonel Mitchell Utterback, the man responsible for involving the Army in the flood rescue efforts in Jamestown and the surrounding Boulder County. Lieutenant Colonel Utterback is now stationed in Afghanistan. We've been invited to put together care items to ship overseas in order to "return the thanks" to him and his incredible crew.

If you would like to send care package items to Lieutenant Colonel Utterback and his troops, we are placing a collection box in Town Hall until December 17th. Please see the letter below for a list of suggested items.

Who does this benefit?: Lieutenant Colonel Mitchell Utterback and his troops in Afghanistan
Who can participate?: Anyone!
When? By Wednesday, December 17th.
Where? Town Hall - Look for a box labeled "National Guard Care Package"
What sort of items for donation?:

* Liquid soap/body wash - water is hard to work with there, so this helps with showering
* Basic hygiene items - deodorant, shampoo, tooth brushes, tooth paste, floss, hand sanitizer, WET WIPES, foot powder, bug spray, sun screen)
* Comfort items - Instant coffee, ground coffee, boot socks, sweets, baked goods, DVD's, books, magazines, Letters or Cards, Kid's drawings

We're excited for this opportunity to spread some holiday cheer to this group who did so much for our community!

I thought some Jimtowners might be interested in this cool workshop:
What is the conscientious gardener’s role in cultivating a beautiful garden, while honoring our finite resources? Why should we integrate native and climate adapted plants that are not only water efficient, but are also beneficial to birds, butterflies, and bees? This workshop, co-sponsored by Boulder County Audubon Society, will inform and educate gardeners and plant enthusiasts about the issues concerning a future of increasing demands on already oversubscribed water sources.
Plantswoman, author, and garden designer Lauren Springer Ogden will introduce the participants to water-wise plants and general design concepts and practices, while Jo Evans, Colorado's foremost expert on water and laws in Colorado, will lead the discussion of these critical issues. Ken Neubecker, Executive Director of the Western Rivers Institute, and Abby Burk, with Western Rivers Action Network, will also speak about the importance of protecting riparian habitat for birds and other wildlife.

Date and time: January 17, 2015, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Location: Impact Hub, 1877 Broadway/Suite 100, Boulder, CO 80302
Cost: $15 admission, which includes refreshments and copies of the Colorado Water Handbook, by Jo Evans, and Colorado Wildscapes: Bringing Conservation Home, by Audubon at Home in Colorado
Sponsored by: Boulder County Audubon, Impact Hub, Terra Foundation, and Audubon Rockies
Seating limited to 125 participants

I strongly suggest that you come to the Open House at the town hall tomorrow night (Tuesday), 6-8 p.m. Six groups of JT folks have been diligently working for over 2 months to come up with project recommendations for various aspects of town life and long term recovery.

And the list of project recommendations is really cool! When you see them, you may have the same reaction I did--Wow, I never thought of that!

As I said 3+ months ago about this process: we're talking about the future of our town and community. I urge you to have your voice be heard by coming to the open house and/or giving input online at the JT Strong website Forum, or the other methods of input.

Oh, and at the open house, there will be some goodies prepared by Rainbow. Yum.

- All musicians MUST be signed up WITH their contact info BY the drawing date (New Year’s Eve 2014) in order to participate.

- Due to Town rebuilding needs, Town Hall will not be available for adult bands to practice on stage with sound.

- HATMASTER OF CEREMONIES and HAT JUDGES are also needed with slots posted on the sign-up sheet.

- The ORDER OF THE BANDS will be randomly drawn from a hat on the night of the performance, so prepare to be an opener, closer, and everything in between!

- ALL KIDS are welcome up to age 18 with parental permission.
- Children under age 5 must be accompanied by an adult to each practice and at the event.
- Sign the child’s name & contact info on the sign-up sheet in the Merc or through email.
- Kids need NOT sign up for specific instruments as interests will be determined during practices!
- Practice space for the kid band will be determined after the drawing date.
- Kids must be committed to attending the practices scheduled by the band.
- Teens over age 15 may also sign up for Adults-In-A-Hat outlined above!


HAT CONTEST for all!

Wear your goofiest, classiest, or most creative hat to the event and win a prize! If you’re not in a band, you can sign up to be a HAT JUDGE!

Has anyone found a brown knit "Joey hat" with ear flaps and strings in the past couple of weeks? The weather was so warm I hadn't missed it till I went to put it on today for a walk in the winter wonderland. I miss it because it reminds me of Joey every time I put it on. :( I'm at 3o3 fore5nine o17one Thanks!

Thank you Nancy, and everyone else that I possibly did not thank for your kind words about our loss of Rider, I finally mostly finished shoveling almost all the dirt and rocks yesterday, I want to make it nicer, but it is snowing now, and I think he is adequately covered, Mike C was gracious to help, he dug a really big hole. I think some of the rocks had gold flecks in them , but not sure,but our beloved golden lab deserved a golden grave. I kept a couple rocks aside in case someone that would know ever wants to look at them, when I recover from all my ailments, perhaps next summer I will take up gold mining as a hobby, in my own yard. I am not sure how to get the gold out of the rocks.If that is what it is even...

Julie has already added some information on the upcoming events for the Jamestown Recovery Plan process. Here is the details from the project website with the links to the CPG Recommendations Report.

The Community Planning Group Recommendations Report is ready for your review.
The Community Planning Groups have completed their final recommendations to inform the Jamestown Recovery Plan. We want to know what you think! While some of the recommendations are specifically focused on helping the Town of Jamestown with recovery, many of the goals include recommendations for the Greater Jamestown area. In particular, recommendations include building a greater sense of community up and down the valley, regional transportation, and stewarding the natural environment.
The project website has a page with all the recommendations, upcoming events, and ways to provide feedback. Go to: http://www.jtstrong.net/cpg-recommendation-reports Community feedback will be collected until December 26th.

There are 3 community events coming up next week that provide an opportunity to give your feedback.

CPG Recommendations Open House
On Tuesday, Dec. 16th we are hosting an Open House from 6-8 p.m. at the Jamestown Town Hall. This event is an open house, which means you can come and go as you please. However, there are short presentations scheduled for 6:00, 7:00 and 7:30. Go to the website to learn more about the format and schedule for this event.

Listening Sessions
We are also hosting two very informal opportunities to find out more about the planning effort. A Pub Chat on Thursday, December 18th, between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. and on Sunday, December 20th a Coffee Chat between 11 and 2 p.m. Drop-in anytime during these two events to the Merc to sit down over a friendly drink with Jan Reed and Lucas, Planning Advisory Team members and CPG Co-Chairs. They will be available to answer questions, provide copies of the report and feedback form, or simply to learn more about what this process has been all about.

We hope you will participate in making the Greater Jamestown community stronger!

Please contact me if you have any questions:

Hello Jamestown!

JTSTRONG.net is asking all Greater Jamestown residents to provide feedback on the 1st draft of the Community's recovery plan. In the attachment, you will find that we are holding an open house and two "listening sessions" as well as providing an online forum for any comments.

Please consider participating. We are only as strong as our community's voice. Over 80 Greater Jamestown volunteers have met and worked for more than 2 months to create this beautifully thoughtful draft and WE NEED YOUR FEEDBACK. Project recommendations vary from traffic calming ideas-senior services-watershed restoration-and more.

Our goal is to make Jamestown an invested home for all residents in the canyon. A place you're proud to live. A place you feel is an extension of your home. Please help us bridge this gap...

The 1st draft is also available online at www.jtstrong.net

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Please feel free to contact me anytime: julie.constantine@jamestownco.org or 303-440-3728.
