If your commute to class or work on the University of Colorado Boulder campus takes you along 30th Street or Colorado Avenue, mark Feb. 9 on your calendar. The city of Boulder that evening is hosting its first open house to gather community input as it kicks off its 30th and Colorado Corridors Study.
The event will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the MacAllister Building Auditorium at the Sustainability, Energy and Environmental Complex (SEEC), located at 4001 Discovery Drive on CU Boulder East Campus.
The evening is designed to help city officials craft the study’s vision, goals and objectives. The 30th Street and Colorado Corridors Study is aimed at developing and evaluating “complete street” conceptual designs. Complete streets are those that accommodate all modes of transportation by planning, designing and building facilities for pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders and vehicle drivers.
The study will examine 30th Street from Baseline Road to Pearl Street, and Colorado Avenue from Foothills Parkway to the CU Boulder campus all the way to Broadway and Euclid Avenue. Part of the city’s 2014 Transportation Master Plan update, the study aims to create a vision for the corridors that meets current and future conditions and is coordinated with other area plans.
More information on the study can be found on the city of Boulder’s 30th and Colorado Corridors Study website.
