||Regional Transportation Plan
||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 :
Instead, please address the needed improvements on 93
and provide thorough, comprehensive planning for mass
transit along the Front Range.
- 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,
- 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).
