The east side of the City of Pueblo is generally the portion of Pueblo to the east of Fountain Creek, and the neighborhood specifically identified as the East Side by the City is bounded by 4th Street/Colorado State Highway 96 on the south, Highway 50 on the east and north, and I-25/Fountain Creek on the west. The stated improvements to support pedestrian activity, parking and enhance streetscaping are not defined at this time.
