All those medians add up. Beginning next week the City of Colorado Springs will mow irrigated medians.
Sounds simple, but add them all up, and Colorado Springs has 49 acres of developed medians. The city says spring rains have caused a lot of growth. The work will be done by a contractor. Non-irrigated medians will not be mowed at this time.
City Staff is finalizing the Adopt a Median program which will be rolled out in early June. It will allow citizens to help with ongoing maintenance as a public service.
