Pueblo, CO, June 29, 2022  -  The Pueblo County Road Naming Committee is hosting two public meetings to receive suggestions for the new county road which will connect Pueblo Boulevard to Joe Martinez Boulevard and South Purcell Boulevard in Pueblo West.

Date/Location:          July 12, 2022 - Sangre de Cristo Arts & Conference Center-Jackson Conference Room

                                    July 19, 2022 - Pueblo West Library

Time:                           6:00pm

This road will access the first net zero jail in the United States, as well as have the potential to create catalytic effects on this the new urban renewal area.  The plans include a trail system, an EV charging plaza for electric vehicles, and a robust amount of economic development in the area.  The road will be historic, as it will one day serve as a stint connecting Pueblo West all the way to downtown Pueblo, as cited in the master plan of the City and County of Pueblo.

In September, the committee will make a name recommendation to the Board of Pueblo County Commissioners for the new road; which will be unveiled during the groundbreaking ceremony later this year.
