    "A combination of unprecedented growth and development in Denver, changing travel preferences, and new technology-enabled transportation options is changing how Denverites use our streets and curb space. For the city to remain an attractive place to live, work, visit and do business, Denver must utilize its space in a way that maximizes safety and access while helping to meet mobility and sustainability goals.” (Excerpt from 2019 ULI Colorado Technical Advisory Report, City of Denver’s American Cities Climate Challenge)
