Colorado Smelter Revitalization Plan


Join us to improve our neighborhoods of Bessemer, Eilers Heights in Bojon Town, and the Grove, which surround the Colorado Smelter Superfund Site.

The Colorado Smelter Revitalization Plan ("CSRP") proposes strategies in three themes: Connectivity and Cultural Heritage, Thriving Neighborhoods, and Vibrant Commercial. The City of Pueblo, partner agencies, and the neighborhood associations have been working with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on this plan since 2016.

Please provide public comments before July 22. After the plan is complete, the Pueblo City Council will adopt the plan.
