Citizens raising concerns can indeed effect change!

Update to the discussion about the recommendation for the one-way couplet for Platte Avenue and Boulder Street: the project has been dropped from the list of city projects to be funded by the 1% PPRTA3 sales tax (if approved by voters in November). Instead, PPRTA3 funding would pay for “must-do” items: structural retaining walls and bridges on Platte at El Paso Street, and intersection work at Union.

A presentation to the PPRTA Board on June 8, the Shooks Run Neighborhood Meeting on June 9, and citizens organizing (oneway-noway.org, yard signs and online petition) around the oneway couplet issue has led the City to drop the one-way couplet from the PPRTA projects list. City project staff will schedule a Character Workshop for Shooks Run and Knob Hill neighbors to develop a range of solutions for our segment of the Platte Avenue corridor later this summer or fall.
