On March 12, 2020, Trailhead Community submitted our Site Development Plan to Jefferson County for approval. A Site Development Plan (SDP) depicts the general layout and configuration of a site, including building footprints, parking and street layout, conceptual landscaping and lighting, site cross section drawings, and building elevations.
Russ, Cynthia and Eric Strecker will match every donation made in the next 10 days, up to a total of $20,000!!! Our construction team needs just $40,000 more to complete the design document phase of the project. Without the funding for this next step, Trailhead Community may have to temporarily suspend progress. If we can meet this challenge within the next 10 days, the ball will keep rolling and we can put our materials needs out for bids, and apply for our building permit.
