Seeking applicants for the new Vision Zero Community Program!

Is traffic safety a concern in your neighborhood? As the leading organization of the Denver Vision Zero Coalition, WalkDenver has heard from communities throughout the city who have expressed growing concern about traffic safety issues affecting their neighborhoods. Initiatives like our Safe Speeds for Denver campaign, various community art projects, and the recent traffic calming pop-ups in Athmar Park and Capitol Hill all brought attention to the need to improve safety for all street users.

WalkDenver is excited to announce the launch of the new Vision Zero Community Program! We are partnering with the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment (DDPHE) and Denver Public Works on this innovative program that will give teams of community members an opportunity to design a project to increase awareness of Vision Zero and promote safer streets in their neighborhoods.

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.
