The Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation Transportation Committee
will meet on Thursday, May 12th, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at 1201 Williams Street, 19th Floor
We hope your neighborhood can send a representative to the committee as we discuss a range of transportation, transit, and streets topics, build connections with the agencies and organizations involved, and ensure that neighborhood input is included in plans at all levels! Attendees do not need to be INC delegates -- all are welcome. Even if your neighborhood organization is not a member of INC, you are welcome to participate. Please pass this on to anyone who might be interested in joining the committee -- write to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our growing e-mail list!
Thursday May 12th, 6-8 p.m.
We have three great speakers lined up for our May meeting:
- RTD CEO and General Manager David Genova
In March, the RTD Board of Directors approved the contract for David Genova as the General Manager and CEO. Mr. Genova will join us to provide an update on FasTracks openings in 2016, a review of the new fare structure, and a discussion of technology upgrades. We’ll have ample time for Q&A as well.
- Denver’s New Pedestrian Crossing Guidelines - Michael Koslow and Emily Snyder, Denver Public Works
Michael Koslow and Emily Snyder will present on the city's new Pedestrian Crossing Guidelines, a policy document that guides staff in determining where and how to improve uncontrolled pedestrian crossings across the city. The Pedestrian Crossing Guidelines provide guidance to determine if a marked crosswalk is appropriate at a particular location and identify a range of context-appropriate treatments. These crossing guidelines will help the city to meet its walking mode share, safety, and sustainability goals.
- Integrating Health and Transportation, Gretchen Armijo and Kayla Gilbert
Learn about the Department of Environmental Health’s work on Health Impact Assessments, Safe Routes to Schools program, and the Community Active Living Coalition, and how Environmental Health is pushing toward Health in All Policies throughout the city of Denver. Hear about current examples of how we are using data and community engagement to create, inform, and enhance safe and enjoyable places and routes for youth, families, and all community members to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives and improve overall health outcomes in the city.
Special INC Meeting on Four Citywide Planning Efforts - Saturday May 21st, 9:30-11 a.m.
Denver is kicking off four major citywide planning efforts this month that will guide the development of the city for the next twenty years:
- Blueprint Denver (the integrated land use and transportation plan),
- Denver Moves: Transit (Denver's first-ever transit plan),
- Denver Moves: Pedestrians and Trails (updating and going beyond the Pedestrian Master Plan), and
- Game Plan (Denver's master plan for parks)
INC's Zoning and Planning (ZAP), Transportation and Parks & Rec. (PARC) committees have joined up for a special meeting with the lead staff members from each of these major planning efforts. Come find out about each of the plans and the extensive public involvement process designed for each one. If you want to help craft the future of the city, you'll want to be involved in these efforts.
