District 9 Projects & Plans

Pause

On 1/12/14 the Colorado Department of Transportation (C-DOT) and the City of Denver presented their proposals for the I-70 project to the Land Use, Transportation and Infrastructure (LUTI) committee, followed by a public comment session.

The I-70 project is in its final stage of design, and by Spring of 2014 will make public the Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statements (SEIS), which will serve as the basis for future improvements on I-70.

Meeting Minutes

Several City planning and public infrastructure projects are underway in North Council District #9 between I-70, the Union Pacific train track alignment, along Brighton Boulevard, and along the Platte River from Cuernavaca Park up to the City’s boundary at 52nd Avenue.  Much of this planning is in response to Fastracks, and all planning activity is an implementation of City plans including Blueprint Denver and the Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Strategic Plan.  These City plans lay the foundation for land use changes and transitions expected as a result of decisions regarding light and commuter rail stations and neighborhood revitalization efforts.  Specific City plan efforts as well as related external agency projects in North Council District #9 are located below.

While not all activities are directly related, there is a high level of coordination between the City, the Regional Transportation District (RTD), and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to understand how City planning processes and decisions intersect with those made within the scope of RTD and CDOT projects. 

Councilwoman Montero is the Chair of the Fastracks Committee. This Committee is a "Committee of the whole" which means that all 13 Council members are members of the committee. Councilwoman Rosemary Rodriguez created the Fastracks Committee to review Fastracks projects including corridor and environmental projects, Denver Union Station, transit-oriented development projects, transit planning, and RTD issues.

Denver Union Station is the planned multi-modal hub for the Denver Region. Because of its central location in Council District 9, portions of virtually all of the Fastracks corridors cut through many of our neighborhoods. It is for that reason that Councilwoman Montero has a keen interest in the build out of Fastracks and works to create a committee where issues of concern to neighborhoods, the City, RTD, and the region can be addressed. The Fastracks Committee generally meets the 3rd Monday of each month at 3:30 PM. If you are interested in attending please call City Council at (720) 865-9534 to confirm time/date/location, occasionally the schedule changes.
