The Fountain Creek Restoration Committee (FCRC) is a group of volunteers dedicated to goals that will lead to completion of a series of successful habitat enhancement projects. Under the guidance of several key individuals, meetings were first held in December of 2006 to discuss the potential of revitalizing Fountain Creek as it flows through Manitou Springs. Monthly scheduled meetings have been very effective, formulating goals and defining objectives. FCRC is now an official project of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation. They are coordinating FCRC efforts as a non-profit organization, and provide the support necessary as the project grows in size and scope.
FCRC has been coordinating its efforts with other organizations, governmental agencies, and elected officials. Several are noted in the Master Plan, with brief summaries. Work with Senator Ken Salazar s office to make this effort part of the Fountain Creek Crown Jewel Project is particularly exciting. Senator Salazar s project has the goals of creating new recreational opportunities and restoring natural ecosystems and wildlife habitat along the entire Fountain Creek corridor.
