Public forum and workshop will be January 10 at Morgridge Commons at 6 p.m.
Glenwood Springs residents, businesses and commuters are invited to a community forum about traffic, commuting patterns and transportation demand management (TDM) on Tuesday, January 10 at 6 p.m. in Morgridge Commons (815 Cooper Ave 2nd floor, Glenwood Springs, CO 81601). To help prepare for the forum, individuals are invited to share initial insights in a brief questionnaire.
The aim of this meeting is to brainstorm and discuss potential traffic mitigation and mobility measures to inform direction for the city’s emerging TDM program. The core TDM program goal is to reduce single-occupancy auto trips in town by maximizing traveler choices. This can be accomplished improving mobility options and infrastructure (transit, biking, walking, ridesharing), providing incentives, information, and/or policy changes to encourage and help individuals modify their travel behavior.
“We have ideas for strategies to ease traffic in town, but we want to brainstorm with our community on what they think would work and what the priority should be,” said City Engineer Terri Partch. “We hear consistently that traffic is an issue, and we think whatever steps come next will be most effective if they are community led.”
