Denver is growing and changing. Every year since 2010, an additional 15,000-20,000 people have moved to the City and County of Denver. This growth has put pressure on the City’s transportation system and is changing the way people travel through and between neighborhoods.
To address this pressure and change at the neighborhood level, the Department of Public Works is establishing a Neighborhood Transportation Management Program (NTMP).
Through the NTMP, Denver Public Works seeks to work together with the City’s neighborhoods to establish local transportation priorities, to develop and implement transportation projects that support those priorities, and to help inform the local implementation of citywide mobility and safety programs.
The NTMP aims to partner with neighborhoods by giving the people who live, work and play in Denver’s neighborhoods a voice in developing local transportation and mobility priorities and projects.
The program will use many avenues to engage in local communities, including: public meetings, neighborhood surveys, stakeholder committees and direct coordination with RNO representatives, neighborhood leaders and councilmembers.
The NTMP will work with statistical neighborhoods, one-on-one, to develop and implement projects and actions that:
On Wednesday, September 26, 2018, Denver Public Works hosted the Public Open House #2 at the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library.
On Monday, June 11, Denver Public Works hosted a public open house at the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library. Ideas on local transportation priorities, issues and enhancements were solicited from those in attendance. View the presentation that was given at the open house (PDF)
Additionally, 273 people took a Public Survey in July 2018 which asked respondents to give their ideas on local transportation priorities, issues and enhancements. The Survey was advertised on nextdoor.com and by local RNOs. View a summary of the survey results (PDF)
The statistical neighborhood of Five Points was selected as the first neighborhood to go through the NTMP Action Plan collaboration process. The Five Points statistical neighborhood includes the neighborhoods of Ballpark, Curtis Park, Five Points, RiNo, San Raphael and Union station North. Five Points ranked first in the NTMP prioritization model which incorporated the following factors: growth pressure, safety, transportation equity, and multimodal.
The Five Points Action Plan will identify 5-15 specific, near-term transportation and mobility enhancement projects, while highlighting longer term actions. The process to develop the Action Plan will take approximately nine (9) months, beginning in April 2018.
