Continuing our series of recommendations about how community members would like to see Eagle Rock transformed, we feature the views of Jennifer Morgan, co-owner of the neighborhood’s only wine store: (Aptly described as “the epitome of a great local business” by our first respondent in this series, Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council President Michael Larsen, CoWineCo is widely admired and patronized—not just in the neighborhood but in the region.)
Our two questions to Jennifer, followed by her responses:
1) What's been your favorite new Eagle Rock business of the past two years and why?
has been a welcome addition to our block in particular. The food is wonderful, the space is attractive, and the service is friendly and efficient. Michelle and Corey have high standards and they work really hard to maintain them.
2) Which one or two businesses or town features (bike lanes, more parks, more trees) would you most like to see come to Eagle Rock and why?
I’d love to see more bike lanes, particularly on Colorado Boulevard, which should be narrower, slower, safer, and more conducive to what makes any town’s center great—foot traffic. I also wish the empty lot just south of were used for something other than an unofficial dirt parking lot and junk sale site. A playground or park there would be such an asset to Eagle Rock. It would be great to be able to park, get your kids out to play, eat, shop, and go to the library without getting back in your car.
