Study Team Presents Recommendations
Stakeholders Envision Neighborhood Oriented Development
Following eight months of studying transportation and revitalization options, the Academy Boulevard Corridor Great Streets project team presented its findings Jan. 26 to the public during the second of two public meetings. Thank you to the approximately 75 residents, business owners, property owners, developers and other stakeholders who attended.
The study team presented its recommendations for transit, roadway, pedestrian, bike and other transportation options for a six-mile segment of Academy Boulevard from Maizeland Road on the north to Drennan Road on the south. The City of Colorado Springs also presented the modeling results of future development visions and land use and revitalization options along the study corridor. Although the study is nearing completion, additional public input and comments will continue to be taken over the next four weeks and incorporated into the report.
The Great Streets study team's presentation covered the topics noted above. Additionally, a number of boards were on display to help illustrate those topics and how recommendations were reached. Several large land use node maps were also available, but are too large to display on the Web site. Call Carl Schueler, the city's project manager, at 385-5391 if you would like to view those maps.
