Blake Avenue Re-Design gains more community feedback

On Tuesday, community members in Glenwood Springs were invited to attend a feedback meeting for the 30% mark of the Blake Street ReDesign project

A selection of stations addressed different phases of the extensive street maintenance, including markings of individual driveways as well as proposed expansions for bike lanes or sidewalks. City engineer Ryan Gordon described to attendees that the city’s priority is to make Blake Avenue QUOTE miserable to commune on and is not intended to be a bypass or thoroughfare UNQUOTE, which was met with a round of cheers and clapping from residents of the neighborhood. Other items that community members gave favorable feedback on include efforts to preserve a majority of the trees along the avenue, as well as improving parking availability.

One more round of public input is slated for Late December.

Feedback that the city is hoping to receive from the survey includes likes and dislikes, opinions on a bus route, and requests in regards to the intersections which are slated to be redone.

The City of Glenwood Springs is hosting a popup event on Friday evening from 4-5pm in the Defiance Church at the intersection of 23rd and Blake Avenue. Interested community members can stop by to learn more about the Blake Avenue Redesign Project proposal, fill out the city’s survey, and leave direct feedback on the project’s planning process.
