The City of Boulder released an on-demand, virtual open house for the Baseline Road Transportation Safety Project, a multi-year project with the goal to improve safety on one of the busiest and most critical corridors in the Boulder. This digital home base features a tool called a “StoryMap,” providing community members and stakeholders with project information in an interactive, fun, and convenient manner.
By scrolling all the way through the StoryMap, you will learn much about Baseline Road- what destinations are on this busy corridor and what it’s like to travel Baseline Road today, regardless of your transportation choice. Also discover why Baseline Road is a Priority Corridor of the city’s Core Arterial Network (CAN) initiative and learn about next steps for this and other CAN corridors.
We encourage your organization to share the Baseline StoryMap and on-demand open house materials widely. We invite community members to review the materials and provide feedback (by Friday, December 9, 2022) through a link at this project webpage. Office hours appointment slots with staff are also available for direct interaction with city staff to discuss the project and offer feedback. Please help our efforts to reach community members in your circles and networks and let’s inform them of the opportunity ahead of us to transform Baseline Road into a safer and more connected corridor.
This multi-year project will improve safety on one of the busiest and most critical corridors in the city, which is home to many key community destinations and services, including affordable housing, grocery stores, shops, health centers, houses of worship, and student housing for the University of Colorado Boulder. The project is a result of the city’s commitment to Vision Zero, our community’s goal to eliminate traffic crash-related deaths and serious injuries.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions about the project, the on-demand open house materials, or the StoryMap. Flyers and postcard-sized notices are also available in print for distribution if that works better for your needs – staff are available to print and drop these off at your request. A downloadable, printable fact sheet about the project is also available in Spanish at the project webpage.
