Resolve to Recycle More in 2018

A new year is upon us, and as with tradition, it’s time to reflect, set goals, and make commitments for the new year. This year, Denver Recycles encourages Denverites to make their 2018 New Year’s resolution to reduce their trash by recycling and composting even more.

16th Street Mall Renovation

The City and County of Denver and the Regional Transportation District (RTD) are recommending a design for reconstruction of the 16th Street Mall that would expand sidewalks for walking, café seating and other activities, and move transit lanes to the center or offset-center of each block. These updates are designed to enhance the Mall experience for visitors while improving pedestrian safety and mobility on the city’s most transit-rich street. The proposed design would update and modernize the Mall’s deteriorating infrastructure, while honoring its iconic look. It is a modified version of one of the options released in October 2017, refined this winter based on input from downtown workers, Mall businesses and the broader community. There will be two Open House Public Meetings on March 8th from 12-1 and again from 5-6 at the RTD Board Room at 1660 Blake St. All are welcome to come and share their feedback on the proposal.
