Lakewood, CO

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2022

Project Category: Public art installations

Description: To make a popular pathway more visually appealing, volunteers painted pavement murals along the corridor from Eaton Senior Communities to the Belmar downtown district. To make high-traffic pedestrian trail more welcoming people of all ages and abilities, volunteers also installed an ADA-compliant benches at several locations, including near a low-income apartment complex.This gives people traveling the pathway a place to rest.

Boulder, CO

AARP Community Challenge Grant Year: 2021

Project Category: Public safety interventions

Description: Boulder's San Lazaro Mobile Home Park lacked well-lit community walkways, causing residents to feel unsafe walking during the evening hours. To address this, the City of Boulder and the park's owners installed solar lights, which they mounted on 20-foot poles to improve visibility after dark. Enhancing walkability and creating a stronger sense of place, this project kicked off a larger effort to replace more of the county's lights with solar lighting.
