Save the Date and sign up to volunteer for the Over the Colfax Clover Design Demonstration on June 3!

Over the last year, WalkDenver has teamed up with the West Colfax Business Improvement District to launch the Over the Colfax Clover project focused on short and long-term design solutions for the cloverleaf interchange of Colfax and Federal that would make this intersection safer and easier to navigate for all users. Now the date has been set for a design demonstration event in the cloverleaf itself to bring to life some of the more people-friendly elements the community hopes to see incorporated into the design of the intersection in the future. On Sunday, June 3, we will be taking over the southwest leaf of the clover for a free, family-friendly event featuring music, food, games, activities, and prizes from 11am to 4pm.

We will need volunteers leading up to and during the event to build temporary raised crosswalks and “roadways,” help with setup and takedown, staff the event, and more. Please sign up at bit.ly/volunteercolfax to volunteer on the following days: Saturday May 19, Tuesday May 22, and the weekend of the event: June 2-3. This work will enable us to realize the community’s ambitious goals to illustrate the long-term vision for the intersection of Colfax & Federal as shown here. Food, t-shirts & raffle tickets will be given to all volunteers as a thank you for helping out!

Slow City: One Day in Denver was a collaborative project led by our partners at Walk2Connect. On April 26, 2014, 27 people walked 13.5 miles across the city of Denver in search of experiences that fuel the yearning for a slow city. A slow city where people get out of their cars and connect with the delightful and gritty nuances that make Denver home. And, where people travel at a speed where they can connect with their environment and one another.

Our project was part of the larger One Day in Denver city-wide, participatory media event. The resulting media will be showcased in an interactive geo-tagged archive and a TV series on the future of the American city.
