Poncha Boulevard Improvements

The presentation of the 2023 Street Reconstruction Project will include Phase 1 plans for streetscape and utility improvements along Poncha Boulevard from Crestone Avenue to Grant Street. It is part of a multi-year construction project.

Survey of City Ballot Issue Results

The survey analyzes voter attitudes on November 2022 ballot issues, specifically about issues relating to attainable housing, and also attitudes towards Home Rule, a likely future ballot issue for the city of Salida. (A previous ballot issue on whether to move from statutory-city status to Home Rule status went down in defeat in 2012.)

The survey measures voter attitudes based on a variety of demographic factors such as gender, age, political party affiliation, income, and length of residence in Salida. The work session packet and agenda can be found here.

The meeting will be held in Room 190 of the Touber Building, at 448 E. First Street in Salida. To join the meeting via webinar, register here.
