A few weeks ago, we asked you to speak up and let Mayor Hancock and City Council know that you wanted the Colfax Corridor Improvements fully funded in the 2017 General Obligation (GO) Bond after being cut to $6 million. In true Colfax form, you made your voices heard.

In the next 25 years, more than 110,000 new jobs, an additional 40,000 person trips per day, and 25,000 new residents will come to the Colfax corridor (data provided by the Colfax Corridor Connections study). That’s a recipe for a chaotic “mosh-pit” style in the public...

About The Collaborative 

Thank you!

The Colfax Collaborative is comprised of four Colfax Avenue Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), who work to make their districts clean, safe, and friendly. The Colfax Mayfair BID, Bluebird BID, Colfax Ave BID, and West Colfax BID are guided by their own volunteer boards of directors and funded through the property taxes of commercial property owners.

 

We are working together on common challenges and opportunities on Colfax, including economic development, urban planning and design, public improvements and safety initiatives.

For the first time in decades, significant investment is being made to make Colfax Avenue safer and more accessible for all. Thanks to the passage of the 2017 General Obligation (GO) Bond by Denver voters on November 7th, Colfax is set to receive $75 million in investment.

 

$55 million of that is for Bus Rapid Transit, or BRT. $20 million will go to some much-needed pedestrian and safety improvements along the corridor from Monaco to Sheridan.
