The town of Basalt assembled a collaborative team to derive a new set of standards that supports a pedestrian-friendly community. The new standards will include features from several categories, including gathering elements and pedestrian-circulation features. The goal of the process is to develop a comprehensive tool kit to aid in the design of streets that will preserve and enhance the small-town character of Basalt. This committee will meet from 1-5 p.m. Monday, May 16.
Hold the date, July 8, for “Creating a Climate-friendly, Energy Independent Future: The Role of Transportation … Challenges, Solutions, and Implementation.”
The Climate Friendly Transportation Summit will be at the Hotel Jerome. Keynote speakers include Congressman Earl Blumenauer and experts on bus rapid transit, transit-oriented development and keys to successful implementation.
