New Vision Zero Map-Based Survey Launched

Tool to Gather Critical Community Input on Safety of Denver Streets

DENVER – Do you think cars drive too fast down your street or know of a sidewalk blind spot where cars cannot see you? Maybe you know a place where the bike lane could use more protection from traffic or does not connect through to your destination? Crash data only tells one side of the story, and we want to hear from Denver residents where they think our streets can be made safer.

  “To create mobility freedom in our city, our people must feel safe no matter the mode of transportation they choose,” Mayor Michael Hancock said. “The city and state have considerable crash data, however, feedback from our residents regarding where they believe safety on our streets can be improved is just as important. This survey will help Denver broaden our insight into the safety of our streets and neighborhoods.”

Denver residents and visitors are encouraged to visit denvergov.org/visionzero to take the map-based survey, select the location of their feedback, and add it to the map before April 30, 2017. Responses from the Vision Zero map survey will be used collectively by the city’s Vision Zero Technical Advisory Committee to identify patterns in behavior and street design to help set priorities for the Vision Zero action plan.

Blueprint Denver Workshop

posted Apr 12, 2017, 1:31 PM by UHNC President

Blueprint Denver wants to know: How should we address growth?

How will Denver address growth as our population continues to increase? Come be part of a Blueprint Denver workshop to help identify the best path forward for managing Denver’s growth.

At our April 25 scenario planning workshop, you can join a “Blueprint growth strategy game” that plays out the implications of different patterns of growth. What are the tradeoffs for different population, employment and housing increases, and what are the tradeoffs associated with different growth strategies?

By creating priority transit corridors, exploring current and future growth patterns downtown and in mixed-use centers, and envisioning new mixed-use centers, you will have an opportunity to help shape how future growth may impact equity and affordability, mobility, and access to recreation and other daily needs.
