Transportation Master Plan

In an effort to address immediate and long-term transportation needs of the campus, Colorado College has initiated a study of pedestrian, motorist and bicyclist safety and mobility through and around the campus. The seven-month Transportation Master Plan study will analyze current travel patterns and make recommendations for future improvements.

"A successful final plan will reflect neighborhood and community interests. Our desire is that the process balances the college's need for safety and mobility with the interests of the surrounding community and adjacent neighborhoods. The plan should also be aesthetically pleasing and create a sense of arrival when approaching the campus, integrating the college with the life of the city and respecting the historic nature of neighborhoods."

 

Colorado College President Jill Tiefenthaler

The Working Group is comprised of approximately 40 business representatives, neighboring organizations, citizens/neighbors, college faculty/staff and students and other community leaders who meet approximately once a month over a seven-month time period.
