About Round Up for the Riverfront
The Colorado Riverfront system is one of the crown jewels of our community, and one of its greatest assets. We all benefit from having a clean, safe and well-maintained riverfront that provides a rich habitat for wildlife and vegetation, as well as a unique recreational trail system for residents and visitors. The Colorado Riverfront Commission and its nonprofit arm, the Colorado Riverfront Foundation, collectively referred to as One Riverfront, are dedicated to maintaining, revitalizing, and providing public access to the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers through the Riverfront Trail System, while preserving the rivers’ groves, wetlands, marshes, gravel bars and islands. Round Up for the Riverfront is a voluntary collection program designed to give your customers the opportunity to invest in the ongoing development and maintenance of the Riverfront System.
Investing in the Riverfront is easy, and everybody wins: your business, your customers, and the community at large. Your involvement costs you nothing and this is strictly an opt-in program. To make it easy for both you and your customers, we provide several options from which to choose and we will help you implement the option that best fits your business!
