    RTD Hosting Industry Conference Where Agency Will Tout Ballot Measure from 14 Years Ago

    Actually, I’d assume it’s the results of Fastracks and specifically the Eagle P3 project to wit:

    RTD successfully executed a public-private partnership (P3) with federal partners and private industry leaders to finance and deliver several projects that were part of the 2004 voter-approved FasTracks program.

    The combination of Fastracks and notably the Eagle P3 created the best transit hub that I can think of for a city the size of Denver. It also inspired the dramatic development of a new urban neighborhood from previous Brownfields. Denver RTD was the first transit agency to utilize a P3 and was later copied by Maryland’s Purple Line.
