Proposition 110 Didn't Pass, But We Aren't Stopping.
Commuting Solutions and the US 36 Mayors & Commissioners Coalition have prepared the following statement:
“Commuting Solutions and the US 36 Mayors & Commissioners Coalition are disappointed Proposition 110, Let’s Go Colorado, was not approved by voters. After years of coalition building among private sector stakeholders, environmental groups, local elected officials, and many other state-wide organizers, this was a unique opportunity that may not come again for years. Commuting Solutions invested $35,000 into the campaign to serve a visible role for Proposition 110 on behalf of the northwest metro region.
We have identified $3 billion in northwest metro regional and local multi-modal transportation needs, which will not be funded through existing local, regional or state resources. As transportation funding is a growing issue for our communities- particularly to attract and retain employment- this conversation is not over.
Proposition 110 included funding for our most important regional and local multi-modal transportation needs: the Longmont Diagonal (SH 119), connecting northern Colorado, Longmont and Boulder; SH 7 connecting Boulder jobs to Lafayette, Erie, Broomfield, Brighton, the I-25 corridor and other Adams County communities where so many of our workers live; SH 287 connecting Larimer County, Longmont to Broomfield and the US 36 corridor; SH 42 in Louisville and Lafayette; and transit access improvements in Boulder and Westminster.
Our region has not received its fair share of previous regional transportation funding, so we will continue to work to fulfill past commitments made to us and identify additional sources of funding in the future to meet our critical transportation needs.
Thank you for your continued support of our mission, of Proposition 110 and for creating a better future for the northwest metro region. We will continue to fight to find funding for the much needed transportation projects that are vital to the growth and development of our region."
Navigating the Road Ahead.
The November midterm election was a capstone moment in 2018 following a pivotal year for transportation funding in Colorado.
Join us to hear from state, regional, and local elected officials, the US 36 Mayors & Commissioners Coalition, private sector leaders and more as they provide a forecast for the year ahead.
