Denver studies Art Alley

I found this interesting. Art Alley was used as one example of what Denver would like to do in becoming "most pedestrian-friendly city in the nation". From some report that was done as part of their planning.



"...2007 Denver City Council adopted the Downtown Area Plan (DAP) to serve as a 20 year visioning plan for leaders, developers and stakeholders in Downtown Denver. The plan identifies five overarching vision elements, seven transformative projects and a strategy framework to aid in creating the most livable, healthy, sustainable and vibrant Downtown. One of the vision elements identified was “Putting the Pedestrian First”. The 2008 Downtown Denver Leadership Program Class was challenged with making recommendations to the DAP 2027 Implementation Committee to define strategies to achieve this vision. The group studied best practices and benefits of a pedestrian-friendly environment,
and came to the conclusion that the enhancement of experiences and change of cultural mindsets so that pedestrians, bicycles, and mass transit take priority over private vehicular transportation are what will make Denver the most pedestrian-friendly city in the nation...."
