Patterson Road Access Control Plan
The City has been conducting an Access Control Plan (ACP) study of the Patterson Road corridor between I-70 Business Loop on the West and Lodgepole Street on the East. The Study began in early 2020 and a draft ACP was available to the public to review in January 2021. The January draft ACP was reviewed by the City Planning Commission on March 23, 2021 in a public hearing. After hearing public testimony for the need for more public engagement on the Plan, Planning Commission tabled their decision and asked the Planning Team to go back to the community for more input.
The Planning Team, made up of City staff and the City’s consultant, Stolfus and Associates, met with business owners and residents and received additional input including how access are being used today and expected to be used in the future. New input received has been invaluable in shaping the latest draft of the ACP to be a Plan that benefits the entire community.
Looking into the long-term needs of properties along Patterson Road and meeting the goals of the Plan to provide the best access possible to homes and businesses as traffic grows to higher levels of congestion is very important. In addition, the desire to not have to add additional lanes of traffic to Patterson Road (7 lanes) is paramount. Proposed changes to the January draft ACP have been made to the maps and tables that will be included in the final April 2021 draft Plan document.
Thank you for engaging with us in this important long-range plan that seeks to protect an important east-west transportation corridor in our community.
