‘Take Back the Boulevard’ Tonight

The Eagle Rock Chamber of Commerce invites you to share your concerns about parking along Colorado Boulevard and its side streets—and to learn about discussions underway to make the boulevard more friendly to pedestrians and bicyclists.

Take Back the Boulevard, Eagle Rock’s homegrown initiative to re-engineer the gateway to its soul, will hold its fourth public meeting tonight, Thursday, July 26, at 6:30 p.m. at .

For anyone unfamiliar with TBTB, as the initiative is referred to in short, it revolves around the Eagle Rock stretch of Colorado Boulevard, the neighborhood’s major artery.

Sponsored by the Eagle Rock Chamber of Commerce and with the backing of , Thursday’s meeting will focus on a key issue that is close to the hearts of Eagle Rock’s business community: Parking.

Many Eagle Rockers share TBTB’s vision of transforming the six-lane portions of Colorado Boulevard into a much slower main street that also serves the interests of pedestrians, bicyclists and others.

The Chamber supports TBTB's key goals of reducing traffic speed and facilitating foot traffic across the boulevard. In past meetings, however, some ERCC attendees have suggested that instead of reducing the number of traffic lanes, installing additional traffic signals and angled parking might be more practical solutions.

Tonight’s meeting is an opportunity for all residents and shareholders to share their specific concerns and ideas about parking on Colorado.

It’s also a suitable occasion to learn about some of the potential changes to the boulevard under discussion—and how those changes are likely to influence parking on Colorado Boulevard and some of the highway's side streets.
