This is because decision makers and influencers in transportation typically dona€™t inhabit identities that make them vulnerable to profiling, racism and violence from law enforcement and other citizens in public spaces, and that includes us at Bicycle Colorado. In this session, wea€™ll dive into how policies in Colorado (and beyond) can and do limit how people of color travel through communities and how we must design, build, legislate and activate our transportation system to increase .. continue reading freedom for people who are immobilized more by personal violence than traffic violence. Moderator: Jill Locantore, Executive Director, Denver Streets Partnership Speakers: Senator Julie Gonzales, Colorado District 34, Marisa Jones, Policy & Partnerships Director, National Safe Routes Partnership, Director Shontel Lewis, Regional Transportation District (RTD) District B, Jack Todd, Director of Communications and Policy, Bicycle Colorado. Land use and transportation policies shape our cities. Thoughtful planning and implementation can help cities become more sustainable, equitable, and connect people to the things they value; when little thought is given, they can reinforce inequities, cause displacement, hinder our air quality, encourage sprawl, and stress our transportation system. Growing cities like Denver are struggling to find the right policy levers and effective balance to create vibrant, liveable, inclusive and sustainable environments for people. Wea€™ll start by looking at Denvera€™s history of red-lining and how it shaped the city of today, then look at the hot emerging land use and transportation topics like Bus Rapid Transit, transit corridors, zoning and housing policy options, and transportation project impacts from highway widening to shared streets.
