DCI & CML's WESTSIDE METRO MOBILE TOUR
We started off the tour at MindSpark, an educational and meeting facility in Lakewood. MindSpark programs deliver extraordinary professional learning experiences for educators, the community, and industry partners who then take their new skills back to the classroom and beyond.
MindSpark hosted our welcome ceremony where we heard from our moderator for the day, Troy Bernberg, Northland Securities; as well as event leaders Katherine Correll, Executive Director of DCI; and Meghan MacKillop, Colorado Municipal League.
After introductions and a big welcome to all attendees, guests heard from Adam Paul, the mayor of the City of Lakewood. The Mayor told funny stories and helped guests feel welcome and at home for the tour. Town leaders Robert Smith, Lakewood Reinvestment Authority; and Tom Quinn, Alameda Business Improvement District, shared next. We heard about many amazing projects going on downtown such as the development of the Belmar area in Lakewood. What used to be a shopping center has become the community-oriented hub of Downtown that brings people together, fosters community, and supports local businesses in Lakewood. Guests had the opportunity to walk from MindSpark to downtown Belmar to see the projects and area developments firsthand.
DCI & CML’s Second Annual Mobile Tour was a huge success! DCI would like to thank our sponsors: City of Wheat Ridge, City of Lakewood, City of Arvada, Alameda Corridor Business Improvement District, City of Golden, Colorado Municipal League (CML), and Regional Transportation District (RTD).
