It’s been about a month since advocates, businesses, government planners, and consultants began brainstorming how to improve West Colfax Avenue with a one-day demo that will include temporary infrastructure. The idea is to spark a more permanent commitment to a complete street.

Since then, reps from Reimagine West Colfax have decided that the demo will take place between Tennyson and Utica streets, and will look roughly like the image above. It will include bike lanes, too, but exactly where is still up in the air.

The next public meeting is this evening, and organizers want the public’s help refining the concept.

From the West Colfax Business Improvement District’s website:

Biggest ideas include: improvements to a pedestrian crossing at Utica, bike lanes on 14th and Tennyson, planted bulbouts, parklets, pop-up retail, and expanded sidewalk near the new Little Man Ice Cream, public art, and more!

Be a part of the conversation tonight at 6p.m. at 4500 West Colfax Avenue.
