CC Transportation
Master Plan Meeting

Since November 2012, several Old North End neighbors, including ONEN Board Members, have been part of a working group to address immediate and long-term safety and mobility of all who travel through and around the Colorado College campus. Here is information on the next meeting that of the working group that is open to the public:
 The technical team drafting recommendations for safety and mobility improvements on the Colorado College campus and in the surrounding area will present a synopsis during a meeting May 1. 
Time/Date: 4 to 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 1, 2013
Place: Gates Common Room (3rd floor), Palmer Hall, 1025 N. Cascade Ave (east of Tutt Library) 
Parking: North of Palmer Hall off E. Uintah St., just east of N. Cascade.
The draft recommendations are based on community values and community vision established by the roughly 40 members of the working group. It includes input received from citizens, businesses, community leaders, City of Colorado Springs staff and college and student body representatives. A road system traffic analysis to establish existing and projected future traffic volumes will be included in the draft plan. Colorado Springs city staff is reviewing the recommendations for cost implications, feasibility and technical acceptability.
“We want to stress that the public vetting process is not yet over,” said Tim Seibert, project manager with N.E.S., the firm leading the master transportation plan process. “What we have at this point is a recommendation based on all the input we’ve received to this point from the community and the working group.”

Upcoming Events

On May 4th from 10am-7pm CC will be having an event called “Blues and Shoes” on the quad between Slocum Hall and Shove Chapel. This is a great day of bluegrass music, barbecue and outdoor games. 
Saturday, May 11th, CC will host “Llamapalooza”, which is a large-scale outdoor music festival in the quad in front of Worner Center. They will bring in a stage, professional sound system and lights, and hire national recording artists. That event runs from 11am-11pm on May 11th, and will involve a street closure of Cascade Avenue from Uintah to Cache La Poudre from 11am until 2-3am on May 12th. Community tickets can be purchased at the Worner Center Desk for $30. They expect total attendance to be about 2,500 people. The sound will be aimed south, so though you’ll likely hear the event, they hope to minimize the negative impact.
Commencement and Graduation Ceremony will be on Monday, May 20th at 8:30am. This will involve a street closure that may affect the morning commute.  Cascade Avenue from Uintah to Cache La Poudre will be closed from 7am-1:30pm.
