Comment By Kaye Shedlock
For Regional Transportation Plan
Comment Please vote NO on adding the Jefferson Parkway to the DRCOG Metro Vision 2035 Regional Transportation Plan.

My reasons for urging you to vote NO are that, if constructed, the Jefferson Parkway :
  • will commit Colorado taxpayers to $800+ Million in unfunded improvements - funds we simply do not have,
  • will increase traffic on the already very dangerous and very busy Highway 93, without providing any improvements or mitigation of even the current problems, and
  • will add 18-20 story buildings along the Front Range, destroying the environment, scenery, and wildlife corridors (which will also add to the traffic hazards).
Instead, please address the needed improvements on 93 and provide thorough, comprehensive planning for mass transit along the Front Range.
