Greenwood Village has announced the kick off of Greenwood Village Connects, an approximately 18-month process to develop a Transportation Master Plan for the Village.
The Greenwood Village Transportation Master Plan will provide guidance to develop the transportation system to meet the needs of the community, connecting Greenwood Village now and in the future. The plan will analyze current and future transportation conditions, establish goals for the transportation system, provide strategies inclusive of all modes of transportation and utilize criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of the transportation system.
“Now is the time for a new transportation plan as the region continues to experience continued growth,” said Josie Ortiz, Greenwood Village Connects project manager. “A new plan will serve as a guide for meeting the Village’s transportation goals while preserving the essential character of the Village.”
Over the last 20-years, the Village has implemented the majority of the recommendations laid out in the 1998 Transportation Master Plan. The region has experienced significant growth during this time, which is expected to continue. Traffic is a priority for Greenwood Village citizens and was named as the number one concern in the four most recent citizen surveys (2006, 2008, 2012 and 2014).
The first of several open houses to be held throughout the development of the plan is scheduled for March 8. The community can view informational boards, speak one-on-one with the project team, and provide input to inform existing conditions analysis and a vision for the transportation system. The public should feel free to drop-in at any time between 5 – 8 p.m.
Community input will be a driving force in the development of the Transportation Master Plan, and open houses will be only one way to provide feedback and connect with the project team. Information on other input opportunities will be shared throughout the process.
