TMP Update Background
Boulder County is a great place to live, work, and play. With beautiful scenery, over 62,000 acres of public open space and countless opportunities for recreation, a great sense of community, and strong local economies, there is so much to love about Boulder County.
Our multimodal transportation network connects our communities and places we want to go. Whether it’s taking a bus to work, riding a bike on the US 36 Bikeway, walking our kids to school, or driving to an appointment, Boulder County’s multimodal transportation network helps to get us there.
There are many ways to get around Boulder County, but rising costs, a growing population, and new technologies are changing how people use the transportation system. Rapid change means that not everyone has access to all transportation options. On top of these changes, costs to maintain the system are going up while funding is going down.
Plan for the Future
We can achieve our vision of a sustainable and inclusive transportation network, but we need to work together to prioritize our transportation investments, explore new funding options, and plan for the future. The county’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP) provides a blueprint for Boulder County’s transportation system for the next 25 years. The TMP will help us understand community needs, provide a clear vision for the Transportation Department, and help us secure funding as it becomes available.
The original TMP was approved in 2012 (learn more). It’s time for an update, and we’ll need your help.
