Tell the Mayor and City Council to fully fund sidewalks and bike lanes

Funding for walking and biking was recently cut dramatically in the proposed project list for the 2017 GO Bond – $24 million was slashed from programs that would begin filling sidewalk gaps and build protected bike lanes citywide. Help us reinstate this funding by messaging the Mayor and City Council today!

Speak up to support funding for sidewalks and bike lanes!

As a member of the Denver Streets Partnership, WalkDenver is calling on the City and County of Denver to build out complete sidewalk and bicycle networks by investing $40 million per year in this infrastructure. At the current pace of funding, it would take hundreds of years to complete Denver’s sidewalk network.

The GO Bond, which the City will ask voters to approve this fall, is an important opportunity to jump start the construction of sidewalks and bike lanes citywide, but City leaders need to hear from people like you how important walking and biking are for your daily transportation needs.

Our fellow member of the Denver Streets Partnership, Bicycle Colorado, has a created a simple form you can fill out to send a customized message to the Mayor and your City Council representatives.

Read in the Denver Post the latest news about the GO Bond and next steps as the Mayor and City Council finalize the list of projects for funding.
