Across the U.S., communities aspire to become more economically vibrant, equitable, and sustainable places. With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and Colorado Health Foundation (CHF), Urban Land Institute (ULI) joins a national study to transform typical strip corridors into healthy places to live and work. ULI selected four demonstration corridors and, as part of this effort, is studying the South Broadway corridor, in Englewood, CO, making recommendations to advance health in this area. The Healthy Corridors approach considers how the corridor contributes to the overall health of the surrounding community, including supplying opportunities to be physically active. It also considers safety, housing affordability, transportation options, environmental sustainability, and social cohesion, as well as modifications that would link residents to the corridor and improve connections to jobs and other parts of the community.
The study area is a 2-mile section running from Oxford to Yale Avenues on South Broadway, and encompasses Englewood Civic Center and Englewood light rail station to the west, and the Swedish Medical District to the east. For further information about the study area and the history the Healthy Corridors Initiative, read the write-up from our October 10th local Englewood workshop HERE.
On January 31st, The Urban Land Institute will hold a public presentation of findings and recommendations advising on ways to improve community health on the South Broadway Corridor in Englewood. The public presentation will be held from 10:45 am – 12 pm, in the 2nd floor “Community Room” of Englewood Civic Center, located at 1000 Englewood Parkway.
Attendance is limited to 40 people. RSVP HERE….
