Re-imagining West Colfax Kick-off Event

Web_English (2)

Join the West Colfax BID for the kick-off of their demonstration of potential design solutions for West Colfax Avenue. Bring your ideas on solutions to help calm traffic, enhance the pedestrian and bicycle environment, and create a stronger sense of place that supports local business development.

The project will begin with brainstorming with businesses and residents, then move on to a design workshop with urban planners and engineers, and then loop back for more input and revised plans from residents and businesses.  Finally, at the end of summer there will be a community celebration to “test run” and install temporary versions of the designs on the street for one day.

The June 11th meeting provides businesses and property owners the opportunity to join the community to begin to shape designs. This preliminary planning phase is going to be facilitated by the West Colfax BID and our partners PlaceMatter, WalkDenver, Groundworks Denver and Radian. Our goal is to envision design solutions connecting two nodes for the celebration, including one on West Colfax.

  • June 11th: Business and Resident Brainstorming Workshop – either 9-11 am or 6-8 pm at Confluence Ministries (1400 Quitman Street, 80204)
