AVON’S ‘ROAD DIET’ FOR BEAVER CREEK BOULEVARD TO BE DISCUSSED SEPTEMBER 15

Public Meeting set to gather input on striping plan and proposed alternatives; Walking Tours of improvements offered before the meeting

Avon, CO – On September 15th, the Town of Avon will be holding a Public Meeting to discuss the future street, bike and walkability design alternatives for Beaver Creek Boulevard. Feedback is requested prior to final design work, which will see widened sidewalks, modifications of roundabouts, additional on-street parking, improved storm-water treatments, lighting, narrowed travel lanes, wayfinding, and landscaping. The goal of the redesign project is to create a more walkable and bicycle friendly street, which reduces vehicular speeds, provides for on-street parking, adds beautification elements and builds an important urban space in the Town core.

The project design team will make a presentation at 5:30 p.m., followed by a review of proposed alternatives and design elements for the roadway. The 2016 test striping results and comments received to date will be reviewed. Attendees will be able to participate directly in answering key design questions through an electronic public polling exercise to provide even more feedback on the project.

Walking Tours: On September 9th, September 12th, and September 15th, tours of Beaver Creek Boulevard will be conducted by Town staff to review the 2016 test striping improvements in the field. To participate in a tour, please meet at 1:00 p.m. in the Post Office parking area near the closed entrance. The tour should last approximately 30 minutes.

For more information about the tours or the Public Meeting, please contact Avon’s Planning Director Matt Pielsticker by calling 970.748.4413 or emailing mpielsticker@avon.org.
