As part of the Stormwater project - The City of Colorado Springs is working to restore the Pine Creek channel (which flows under the Chapel Hills road bridge) and will be doing work as it flows through the PCVA boundary - in particular within the privately owned Pine Creek Golf Course grounds. Work is planned for January to June 2019.
The goal is to establish physical, chemical, and biological functions of the river system that are self-regulating and emulate the natural stable form within the constraints imposed by the larger landscape conditions. It is important to restore all components of a stream system that are required to make it sustainable, rather than just focusing on what is visible (per Natural Channel Design Definition (Wildland Hydrology)).
A public meeting was held January 9th, and you can see the presentation at the link below.

November 15th, 2019 Update The project is winding down and nearing completion. The channel construction along hole 11 is done with a few final plantings being completed. The basin upstream of hole 10 is almost complete. The contractor should be substantially complete by Thanksgiving with only minor cleanup operations to be completed. The contractor will be coming back around March to finish some of the plantings that are out of season right now to complete, but that will be small trucks and hand work.
