Denver 2A through 2E will deliver infrastructure improvements that power our economic recovery and help the people who need it the most. Vote yes on 2A through 2E to create good paying jobs, provide shelter for people experiencing homelessness, and invest in historically underserved neighborhoods.
And we can do all of this while keeping your tax rates the same.
Measures 2A through 2E will address critical issues facing Denver and help get the city back to work. The ballot measures will fund 88 specific projects that target the most pressing concerns of Denver residents in the neighborhoods that need it most, as identified through a public input process that engaged thousands of Denver residents. By funding these projects, 2A-2E will create more than $1 billion of economic impact and 7,500 jobs and will save taxpayer money by repairing and improving Denver’s infrastructure before it breaks.
Measure 2C will address improvements to the city’s transportation and mobility network to help reach the objectives of Vision Zero. Measure 2C will:
• Build out Denver’s bicycle infrastructure in Globeville-Elyria-Swansea, South, and Central Denver neighborhoods to provide a more comfortable and safe experience for cyclists. Much of this new construction is in traditionally underserved neighborhoods.
• Address sidewalk construction, pedestrian, and transportation safety throughout the city. Denver currently has 300 miles of sidewalk gaps that 2C will address across the city with an emphasis on underserved neighborhoods. Similarly, 2C will improve access to public transportation, comfort and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists, and improve intersections, signalized crossings, and safe routes to school.
• Fund the reconstruction of Morrison Road and multi-modal improvements along Peoria. These improvements will improve access to commercial and residential spaces for residents and workers, which will in turn increase economic output in these communities.
• Spur the development of the 5280 Urban Trail in the heart of Denver. The trail will provide residents and visitors alike a unique, accessible path through the many different neighborhoods in downtown Denver, creating a space for small businesses, local artists, and more to help link Denver’s urban life with its outdoor culture.
Measures 2A-2E are a result of input from residents across Denver, reflecting the need to address critical issues, create a more equitable city, and jumpstart the economy, all without raising taxes.
