Support Slower Speeds For Minturn!

Minturn has grown residentially over the last several decades yet speed limits on State Highway 24 through town remain higher than standard residential zones. With pedestrians at risk and so many residential driveways along the road, speeding has become a big issue in our tiny town. Please help us tell the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) that Minturn wants to stay a safe and friendly community, and to reduce the number of speed limits through our town. Please click here to sign the petition. Thanks so much for your support!
