Have A Vision For The 16th Street Mall? Feedback Wanted

By Tori Mason

DENVER (CBS4)– Thousands of people walk along the 16th Street Mall every day, whether they’re on their way to work, shopping, eating or enjoying a day at one of Denver’s most popular landmarks.

After more than three decades, the City of Denver believes it’s time for a face lift; the 35-year-old mall is aging and needs improvements to its deteriorating infrastructure.

The open house is designed to collect feedback from the public about the future of the 16th Street Mall.

The proposed design concepts for improvements to the 16th Street Mall include the alignment of transit lanes and the general location of the trees, lights and gathering and pedestrian space.

The 16th Street Mall partners want to talk to those who walk the streets every day for feedback on how to improve the space. They also want feedback from those who stopped going to the landmark in hopes of learning why some stay away.
