Come discuss transportation options

Join the community’s continuing conversation about how to make Lakewood even better and more sustainable by attending the “Lakewood Moves” open house, 5:30-8 p.m., Oct. 29 in the City Council Chambers, 480 S. Allison Parkway.

During the Oct. 29 open house, residents, business owners and community members can offer their ideas on the following topics:

• How should transportation and land use work together to create a more livable city?
• How can Lakewood integrate the automobile, pedestrians, bicyclists and public transportation users so that the city is more sustainable?
• How should Lakewood plan for future growth and encourage the development of a transportation system with multiple options?

Guest speakers for this open house will be Gideon Berger, a senior director for the Rose Center for Public Leadership at the Urban Land Institute who has experience with transportation and land-use planning, and Crissy Fanganello, director of the Policy & Planning Group in Denver’s Public Works Department who helped launch Denver’s Strategic Transportation Plan and Living Streets Initiative.

This open house is the fourth in a series of five open houses discussing how to update Lakewood’s Comprehensive Plan, an essential document that lays out the vision for the city’s future. The open houses also include discussions about creating the City’s first Sustainability Plan, an important step in making Lakewood more sustainable.
