RTD and Stakeholders Narrowing Focus on solutions for Northwest AreaThe Regional Transportation District (RTD) and Northwest metro area communities took a major step forward in the Northwest Area Mobility Study July 30. The group agreed to focus the study on a specific set of transit alternatives that could bring commuter rail and/or other transit improvements to Northwest communities sooner than current projections for when RTD could complete the Northwest Rail Line to Longmont. Read about the developments here.
Telephone Town HallsRTD called 48,000 telephone numbers in the northwest area to invite residents to join a live telephone town hall meeting on June 19 about the Northwest Area Mobility Study.
About 5,300 people participated in the call at some level during the one hour-long event.
Others would have participated if they had been able to connect through the publicized call-in number. Some were prevented from calling in because of an error
in the published phone number for the event.
"This is unfortunate and we apologize for the inconvenience to those who tried to join the meeting," said RTD General Manager Phil Washington. "Our goal is to include as many people as possible in this process, so holding a second meeting will provide another opportunity for those who'd like to participate."
RTD and the northwest area stakeholders hosted another telephone town hall on Thursday, June 27, 2013.
