Thanks to everyone in the community that came to the Coffman Street Busway Open House on September 27. Attendees had the opportunity to learn more about the community vision for Coffman Street, including important components such as transit and bike lanes and submit feedback on corridor characteristics such as trees/landscape, parking and bus stops. The project team is in the process of evaluating this feedback for consideration as the project moves to 30% design.

There is still time to learn more about the project and submit feedback right here on Engage Longmont! View the boards presented at the open house below and visit the “Corridor Characteristics” tab to leave feedback about specific community characteristics along the corridor. The boards are listed by topic or you can download all of the project boards in one PDF file.
