ABC Study Team Unveils Great Ideas for Great Streets
Jan. 26 is Final Great Streets Project Public Meeting
During the past year, the City of Colorado Springs and a large stakeholder team have been actively involved in a transportation and planning study to support revitalization of the 6-mile segment of Academy Boulevard between Maizeland Road on the north and Drennan Road on the south.
Since the study team's first public meeting in June 2010, it has met with numerous stakeholders and has modeled future development visions for the corridor including ways to improve pedestrian and bicycle accommodations, access to businesses and neighborhoods, and to enhance vehicle traffic. The study team also has evaluated and recommended public transit options for this segment of Academy Boulevard.
Stakeholders, residents, and business and property owners are invited to the final Academy Boulevard Corridor Greats Streets public meeting to review and comment on these recommendations before they become final.
Please visit our Web site for the latest project information and draft recommendations. The study team's recommendations and the presentation materials from the meeting will be added to the Web site shortly after the Jan. 26 meeting. For more information, or if you have questions or ideas, please contact Carl Schueler, project manager for the City of Colorado Springs, at (719) 385-5391 or send him an email.
The project team looks forward to seeing you Jan. 26.
