City Seeks Additional Community Feedback on Safety and Mobility in the Downtown Core Project

Safety and Mobility in the Downtown Core - Newsflash

Let us know your thoughts on Safety and Mobility in the Downtown Core

The “Safety and Mobility in the Core” project is a vision for a safe, connected, and vibrant downtown core in Aspen. 

For almost a year, the City of Aspen has explored how right-of-way (ROW) space could be allocated differently to increase safety for all pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. Last February, staff discussed options at a City Council Work Session to enhance safety and mobility in Aspen’s Downtown Core, including improvements at individual intersections and discussions on ROW usage. Since then, the project team has followed up on Council direction and engaged the community through a fall questionnaire and targeted discussions with stakeholder groups like the Aspen Chamber Resort Association (ACRA) to evolve the options and develop a proposed plan for additional feedback.

As the project team prepares to bring this topic back to Council in early February, the city invites you to get reacquainted with the project, review work progress to date, and share your input and ideas on a proposed option to implement this summer. 

An online questionnaire is open through January 26. The questionnaire asks you to share your thoughts and levels of support for various aspects of the plan, including the changes to Galena, parking and transit components. Additionally, there is an opportunity to let the city know if you would also like to participate in one of several focus groups scheduled for January 26 or January 31. All feedback collected to date, including that captured in the fall questionnaire and previous stakeholder discussions, will be shared, and help shape the upcoming update to City Council.

Visit and take the questionnaire today!
