|Denver Seeks Feedback on Visionary Transportation Plan Denver Moves Everyone 2050 will identify equitable and safe solutions for the movement of people and goods, ensuring Denverites have access to what they need |
Denver – Denver is kicking off a strategic transportation plan, called Denver Moves Everyone 2050 (DME) and is seeking community feedback through an online engagement tool: denvermoveseveryone.com. This feedback will set the foundation for the project by identifying community values that will inform the goals of the plan.
“The last time Denver completed a strategic transportation plan was in 2008. Since then, there have been significant changes in and around the city including population growth, growing safety challenges, evolving needs to move freight and people efficiently, emerging technologies and growing inequities,” explained Eulois Cleckley, Executive Director of the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI).
“We recognize the evolution of Denver over the past 13 years. That’s why we are excited to create this inclusive, future-focused, visionary plan.” DME will build upon the extensive work completed for the Denveright Comprehensive Plan 2040, developing a transportation plan that aligns future investments with community-developed mobility goals.
There are four major phases of the two-year DME project. Each phase will build on the next to ultimately identify near-, mid- and long-term projects. The project will be guided by community feedback coupled with knowledge and insight from industry leaders in transportation, energy, education, health and wellness and many more—a comprehensive approach to include all voices in the development of the plan.
“Transportation plays a key role in improving people’s quality of life. We want to ensure all voices are at the table and are engaged throughout this project,” said Cleckley.
