Mayor Steve Bach formally announced the creation of the Pikes Peak Region Mayors Caucus, which includes the mayors of surrounding communities and the chairs of the El Paso and Teller county commissioners.
The group plans to meet to address, among other things, transportation issues.
“This group will be traveling to Denver in the near future. We’ve asked to meet with Gov. Hickenlooper,” Bach said.
“(It will be) the first time, I think, in history that will have happened, that all the mayors and county chairs from our region will be together … to meet with Gov. (John) Hickenlooper to ask him to provide the support we need in the Pikes Peak region for our state highways,” he said.
“I’m very excited about the prospects of what we can accomplish together.”
