Much of my district has been overlooked when it comes to basic infrastructure needs. There are streets in Globeville, Elyria and Swansea that have not been touched in 50 years. Part of my vision is that we must invest in mobility that focuses on moving people rather than simply cars. I am supporting the installation of many sidewalks, protected bike lanes, pedestrian bridges (Swansea) and many street paving’s. I am also seeking a means of developing a funding strategy to complete Denver Moves for pedestrians and bikes city-wide in 5-10 years.
The I-70 viaduct is a State & Federal project that has divided our community for 50 years. Our office is leading the conversation with CDOT on higher mitigation standards for air quality, school improvements and an affordable trust fund for displaced residents. Our office is advocating to increase multi-modal access to historically underserved communities.
