3 APPENDIX A PLANS AND POLICY REVIEW 2035 Metro Vision Regional Transportation Plan (MVRTP) (2011) 2040 Fiscally Constrained Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) (2015) Denver Comprehensive Plan (2000) The MVRTP is the 25-year long-range transportation plan produced by DRCOG. The Fiscally Constrained portion of the RTP is the federally required list of all regionally significant roadway and transit projects in the pipeline for the 25-year plan. Produced by DRCOG, the RTP is the longrange transportation plan for the Denver metropolitan region. The RTP defines transportation elements and services to be provided over the next 25 years based on reasonably expected revenue. The Denver Comprehensive Plan called for both an update to the city s zoning code, as well as a new land use and transportation plan. Provide increased transit service and facilities that can accommodate an increasing share of daily travel, encourage transit-oriented development, and provide mobility options. Provide efficient interconnections of the transportation system within modes, among different modes, and between the metropolitan area and the rest of the state and nation. Design new developments within communities to allow the efficient movement of pedestrians, bicyclists, buses, and motor vehicles within, to, and through the area. The plan provides a fiscally constrained snapshot of future transit investments in the Denver region. Anticipate and meet the expanding mobility needs of residents, businesses, and visitors. - A-1 - DENVERMOVES Transit

4 Blueprint Denver (2002) Game Plan (2003) Blueprint Denver provides the city s integrated land use and transportation plan. The plan identifies areas of change and serves as a catalyst for Denver s new context- and form-based code. The Denver Parks and Recreation Game Plan envisioned Denver as a City in a Park, where Denver is a park, and people, streets, and buildings coexist as integral parts of a diverse landscape. It conceptualized a Green Street system with a continuous network of sidewalks and pedestrian pathways throughout the city. Establish transportation standards that incorporate designs for multimodal streets. Support buildout of RTD s rapid transit system and other opportunities for rail transit. Identify and develop enhanced bus corridors. Reduce reliance on single occupant vehicles, improve the efficiency of the transportation system and allow parking reductions at destinations served by good transit access and shared parking. improve pedestrian, bicycle, public transit, and other routes for people of all ages and abilities. At least 75% of Denver residents should have safe pedestrian or transit access to a recreation center. Provide strong, accessible pedestrian connections among Downtown public spaces, and provide links to transit facilities. Ensure safe pedestrian and bicycle connections across these waterways to link major recreational areas with activity areas and transit stops. Plan parks and green connections with transit in mind. - A-2 -

5 Pedestrian Master Plan (2004) The Pedestrian Plan is an implementation framework of new pedestrian planning policies in Denver, developed from the Comprehensive Plan and Blueprint. Prioritize upgrades to non-signalized or stop-controlled intersections within two blocks of schools, light rail transit stations, elderly housing projects and other areas with high pedestrian activity. Recommend funding at least two upgrades each year. Require a minimum four inch (4 ) thick, five foot (5 ) detached sidewalk with an eight foot (8 ) tree lawn/amenity zone, especially along Green Streets, enhanced bus corridors, in areas of change, areas with substantial new development, and at transit station areas and transfers. Continue to identify needed connections that make direct pedestrian routes to transit corridors and stations, neighborhood destinations, significant work force centers, schools, libraries and parks. Eliminate missing links. Require direct on-site pedestrian connections between new development and transit stops. Provide for mobility along the edges of, and into parks where they abut rightsof-way (ROW), particularly along arterials where connections to bus and transit stops are needed. Support Transit Oriented Development, Mixed- Use zoning. - A-3 - DENVERMOVES Transit

6 Downtown Multimodal Access Plan (DMAP) (2005) Moving People: Denver Strategic Transportation Plan (STP) (2008) Denver Strategic Parking Plan (SPP) (2010) DMAP is an integrated plan for vehicular, freight (primarily delivery services), pedestrian, bicycle, and transit access into and throughout Downtown Denver over the next 20 to 25 years. The plan focuses on the relationship between land use and transportation, major infrastructure improvements, and the important role streets play in creating quality connections between destinations. The STP is a multimodal transportation plan that plans for people and travel sheds, rather than simply vehicles and corridors. A key determination in this plan was to not grow Denver s road footprint. The SPP aligns a citywide vision for parking management, accounting for parking values from a range of user perspectives. Plans for parking at and around Denver s transit facilities play a role in determining who uses transit, how they access transit facilities, and the kinds of impacts those facilities have on surrounding neighborhoods. The system should complement current and future high-capacity transit services with enhancements that benefit both pedestrians and transit users and address the need for seamless connectivity between modes. Fund promotional and operational programs designed to encourage the use of alternative travel modes, carpooling, and other trip reduction strategies. Key investments include upgrading transit service frequency, expanding hours of operations, expanding transit route structure, enhancing transit stops and passenger amenities, and improving transit operations by implementing strategies such as Transit Signal Priority (TSP), an operational strategy that gives priority to the movement of transit vehicles through traffic signal-controlled intersections. Improvements such as lane balancing and transit service expansion remove gaps in the system so that congestion is reduced and transit ridership is increased. Parking Management Toolbox, Demand Strategy 1: [Provide] transit incentives or subsidies. - A-4 -

7 Denver Moves: Making Bicycle and Multi-Use Connections (2011) Living Streets Initiative (LSI) (2014) Transit Oriented Denver (TOD) (2014) This iteration of Denver Moves focuses on the integration of off- and on-street active transportation networks. As a dynamic document, it serves as a toolbox of multi-modal facilities for use in response to changing needs. The LSI establishes a set of three functional categories for streets Connecting, Multimodal, and Destination Streets through considerations of multiple aspects of livability, that address all components of the street: the private and pedestrian realms and the roadway. TOD 2014 aligns multiple existing station area plans and transit-oriented development policies into a cohesive work program. It creates a station typology, establishes development expectations, and sets benchmarks for prospective investments. A biking and walking network where every household is within a quarter-mile (five minute walk or two minute bicycle ride) of a high ease of use facility. Mid-block crossing should be provided to enhance connections to transit stops. Project prioritization scoring includes access to transit (e.g. within quarter mile of a living street or enhanced transit corridor receives one out of two points). Living Streets recognizes that each street is different. Together, the network of streets provide choices so that people of all ages and mobility levels feel safe and comfortable driving, riding transit, bicycling, and walking. Integrate Transit Communities and TOD Principles into updates to the Comprehensive Plan and Blueprint Denver. Explore opportunities for Non-Rail Station transit-oriented development Planning. Evaluate Denver s role in transit planning and implementation. Apply parking management strategies at transit-oriented developments. Utilize Denver TOD financing principles. Utilize Denver TOD financing mechanisms. Create station area financing plans for designated catalyze stations. - A-5 - DENVERMOVES Transit

8 Beyond Traffic: Denver Smart City Challenge (2016) RTD Strategic Plan (2015) In October 2016, the City and County of Denver was awarded a $6 million federal grant to deploy technology that will address traffic congestion and safety. These funds will be used to overcome challenges caused by rapid population growth, increased traffic congestion, increasing numbers of serious crashes, environmental impacts, and widening income, housing and education gaps. This plan is the RTD s five year plan, presenting the RTD s vision for regional transit progress through It identifies seven primary strategies the RTD will focus on within this time period. Increase number of residents with FMLM [First-Mile/Last-Mile] accessibility to public transit by 30% Leverage CDOT funding and technology projects to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion at key arterial and freeway connection points Deploy nine electric buses on one of the busiest corridors in the city Leverage CDOT s $20 million RoadX Program and its $7 million Smart City contribution to bolster our projects focused on freight efficiency and integrated freeway and arterial operations Link the sharing economy with transit, ensuring that all users have the mobility services they are looking for Customer service: Deliver customer-oriented service Safety: Foster a safety culture Financial sustainability: Strengthen fiscal resiliency and explore financial innovation Equity and accessibility: Improve customer access and support transit oriented communities System optimization: Optimize service delivery Technological innovation: Use technology to operate efficiently and improve the customer service experience Workforce: Foster a dynamic and sustainable workforce - A-6 -

9 The Climate Action Plan (2015) The Climate Action Plan recognizes the impacts of climate change, and provides strategies in three main sectors energy efficiency in buildings, electricity generation emissions, and land-use and transportation development to realize a reduction goal of 1990 GHG emissions levels by Support multi-modal RTD options. Implement Strategic Transportation Plan and complete streets. Promote transit-oriented development. Develop community-wide Eco Pass Program feasibility study. Leverage technological advancements to increase ease of use of the full transit system, especially as the mass transit system is improved and supplemented by private sector service (e.g., mobile phone apps and real-time data). Implement Pedestrian Master Plan and prioritize sidewalk connectivity to transit stops. Enhance local bus stop amenities (shelters and benches). Offer Denver Last Mile transit options (e.g., free rides for children and seniors during off-peak hours). Improve regional interconnection (e.g., through advocacy of high-speed rail lines) to reduce emissions from airlines and other high-carbon transport options. Increase bike-carrying capacity on trains and buses. Establish parking regulations and zoning requirements to encourage alternative transportation. Convert more on-street parking to bicycle, pedestrian, and transit lanes. Reduce community emissions 80% by 2050 (Denver 80 by 50 Climate Goal) - A-7 - DENVERMOVES Transit

10 The Climate Adaptation Plan (2014) 2020 Sustainability Goals As a supplement to the Climate Action Plan, this plan provides strategies to prepare for and adapt to climate change. Denver Office of Sustainability published 12 sustainability goals to help guide future growth in Denver. Improve mobility within the city and its communities. Create transit oriented and sustainable neighborhoods. Increase alternative transportation options. Reduce total community-wide CO2e emissions from Denver to below the level of emissions in 1990, (i.e., less than 11.8 million mtco2e). Increase the percentage of children and adolescents in Denver who are at a healthy weight from 69% to 74%. Ensure that at least 80% of neighborhoods in Denver are rated as affordable using the Center for Neighborhood Technology s H+T Index while preserving the diversity of the neighborhoods. Provide mobility options (transit, carpooling, biking, walking) that reduce commuting travel in single-occupant vehicles to no more than 60% of all trips. - A-8 -
