The City of Cripple Creek Colorado


Cripple Creek played an integral role in the rich heritage of Colorado. The first homesteaders arrived here in the mid-1800s. In 1890, a ranch hand named Bob Womack discovered gold and Cripple Creek changed forever. By 1900, more than 50,000 people called the gold camp home. When the golden era ended in 1918, more than $300 million in gold had been mined in what would be the last great gold rush in North America. By the 1920s, only about 40 mines remained, but two decades later, in the 1940s, the town began to promote itself as a tourist destination, offering visitors a glimpse into the past. In 1991, the town was opened to limited-stakes gaming. Today, the venerable gold camp has reinvented itself as a full-service tourist destination, all the while preserving and showcasing its rich history.

SAFETY AROUND SNOW REMOVAL EQUIPMENT

This information is intended to give a brief description of Cripple Creek’s Snow Removal plan as well as provide tips for winter driving in Cripple Creek and the surrounding area. The City of Cripple Creek uses a variety of plows and heavy equipment to clear roads of snow and ice. In addition, the City employs a granular ice-slicer to reduce ice-buildup. The Public Works Department’s first priority is to plow the collectors and main avenues first, that is Myers/Masonic, Bennett, and Carr as well as their cross streets. This is so the streets with the most amount of regular and emergency traffic are as safe as possible. Weather conditions determine the amount of plows and materials used for each storm.

CDOT’s snowplows use distinctive amber and blue lights to warn you well in advance that snow removal operations are underway. You may also encounter a CDOT truck applying liquid de-icer. Stay back to avoid getting extensive liquid on your windshield.

When you see snow plows or snow removal equipment, slow down and use caution. Your best course of action will be to follow well behind the plow with your headlights on, staying away from flying snow and sand/granular ice-slicer which the truck may be spreading to improve traction. Avoid driving in the snowplow’s blind spots. If you must pass the plow, remember the limited visibility caused by flying snow. Be sure you have enough visibility to avoid the rooster tail of snow coming from the plow’s blade. Please do your part by driving safely around Colorado’s snowplows!

Renters and Owners Policy Change

The increasing number of issues created between property owners and renters has prompted the implementation of a policy change.

Beginning January 2016 as the requests for tenant address changes are received, the monthly utility billing will remain in the property

owner’s name whom is ultimately the responsible party. All utility charges will be mailed to the property owner. While the renter may

pay the utility bill, it will be the property owner’s responsibility to notify the renter of the charges.
