Aurora hosting second meeting Feb. 17 for Havana corridor study

AURORA, Colo. – The public is invited to attend a virtual meeting from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17, to review initial recommendations to improve walking, biking, transit riding and driving on the Havana Street corridor based on feedback gathered from residents and businesses.

These recommendations will be refined based on input gathered at this meeting, and will guide future improvements on Havana Street when funding is available.

The city has been studying the Havana Street corridor from Montview Boulevard to Dartmouth Avenue with an eye toward improved safety and mobility for all users along the busy corridors.

The intent is to create a future Havana Street corridor that is pedestrian and bicycle friendly but also efficient for other travel modes; safe for all travelers; a diverse cultural hub; represents and promotes the needs of existing and future economic development and the community; maintains distinct characteristics of corridor subareas; and is activated by arts and entertainment elements.

The study will create a corridor vision, goals, brand enhancements, land use framework and recommended transportation improvements that recognizes the diverse needs of Aurora’s residents, business owners, visitors and traveling public.

Key stakeholders involved in the project include the Havana Business Improvement District, the Colorado Department of Transportation, the Regional Transportation District, the Denver Regional Council of Governments, nearby neighborhood organizations, and the city and county of Denver.
