As part of the Pedal the Plains event happening in Brush! on Sept 16th, bringing in over 1200 cyclists, we will be looking for community members who would be willing to open up their homes for some of the riders for that one night.


Host homes will need to provide cyclists with a bed and a bathroom (including a shower) and transportation to and from the Pedal The Plains Headquarters site. It is not mandatory for host families to provide meals for the cyclists, but they may do so if they'd like. Some host families really enjoy having guests in their home and spending time getting to know them, whereas others prefer to simply house the cyclist.


You will be able to contact your guest(s) prior to the event, and get to know them a little beforehand. If you are interested, please contact us at tpurvis@brushcolo.com or 842-5001. And pass this on to others who might be interested!

    The Mill Street Repair Project

    City of Brush! Public Works Department

    Contact: Dale Colerick, Director of Public Works (970) 842-5001


    When: Starting on June 19th, 2017 through July 12th, 2017.

    What Times: 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. (0700 to 1900) Monday through Friday.


    What Will Happen:

  • An anticipated month long closure of the 300 thru 600 blocks of Mill St.
  • Removal of the asphalt curb on the north side.
  • Milling the 5" of existing asphalt, and removal of 7" of subgrade.
  • Reconditioning of the subgrade to a depth of 9".
  • Placement of 7" of millings as a base course material.
  • Grade and compact the base course material.
  • Repave with 5" of asphalt.
  • Replace the asphalt curb on the north side.
  • Seed the ditch bank with native grasses.

  • How This Will Impact Residents:

  • Access – unfortunately this will be a construction zone. Normal access to the homes will be limited.
  • Vehicle Parking – because the street will be under construction, there will be no access to some parking garages. Residents are encouraged to make alternate parking arrangements.
  • Trash Collection – there should be no impact to the City's trash collection.
  • Public Safety – Police, Fire & Ambulance will still be allowed to access the street.
  • The July 4th parade will need to be rerouted this year only.

  • Will My Property Taxes Go Up? No, this project is being funded by 2A and Federal Aid monies. 2A was the ballot measure passed in 2006, adding a 0.6¢ increase in the City's sales tax for roadways.


    With subgrade stabilization and a thicker mat of asphalt, this section of roadway, which has been failing for some time, is expected to hold up for long time.


    The City understands the inconvenience this may cause some residents, but it is a short term project that will provide a quality road section. The City appreciates everyone's patience and understanding.


    5/30/17

    The Emerson Street Repair Project

    City of Brush! Public Works Department

  • Reconditioning of the subgrade with fly ash.
  • Placement of 6" of base course material with a top layer of fine grade material.
  • Grade and compact the base course material.
  • Repave with 4" of asphalt.

  • How This Will Impact Residents:

  • Access – unfortunately this will be a construction zone. Normal access to the homes will be limited.
  • Vehicle Parking – because the street will be under construction, there will be no parking available to the front of some homes. Residents are encouraged to make alternate parking arrangements.
  • Trash Collection – residents who normally place their trash containers out front are requested to place their trash containers on the front lawn. The City's trash crew will walk them out to the trash truck and bring them back.
  • Public Safety – Police, Fire & Ambulance will still be allowed to access the street.

  • Will My Property Taxes Go Up? No, this project is being funded by 2A and FEMA monies. 2A was the ballot measure passed in 2006, adding a 0.6¢ increase in the City's sales tax for roadways.


    With improved drainage, subgrade stabilization and a thicker mat of asphalt, this section of roadway, which has been failing for some time, is expected to hold up for long time.


    The City understands the inconvenience this may cause some residents, but it is a short term project that will provide a quality road section. The City appreciates everyone's patience and understanding.
