PAGOSA SPRINGS BRIDGE EARNS LOTTERY STARBURST AWARD
November 29, 2015
The Colorado Lottery will present a 2015 Starburst Community Award to the Town of Pagosa Springs for using Lottery funds to complete the 6th Street Pedestrian Bridge. The bridge and trail improvements were completed last fall with support from a $242,000 Lottery-funded Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) grant.

The award will be presented at the City Council meeting on November 3 at 5:00 p.m.

The Bridge is a vital link in the downtown Pagosa Springs trail system – connecting the west side of town to the community center, Town Hall, and Yamaguchi Outdoor Sports Park. Town leadership has already noticed an increase in park use and a decrease in parking lot use at Yamaguchi Sports Park since the completion of the pedestrian bridge.   

The Colorado Lottery Starburst Community Awards recognize excellence in the use of Lottery proceeds in community projects implemented to enhance a community’s environment.

In FY2015 alone, the Lottery distributed $127.9 million in proceeds. Since its creation 32 years ago, the Lottery has returned more than $2.8 billion back into the state of Colorado.

Lottery proceeds are distributed to three primary beneficiaries: GOCO, Conservation Trust Fund, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife. These organizations provide grants and direct funding for parks, recreation, open space acquisition, trails, and wildlife and conservation education.
