Downtown Denver is expected to see a significant number of vehicle and pedestrian traffic this evening due to multiple events happening at the same time. Avoid the area if possible and plan ahead for significant delays.
Curbside Access Plans (CAPs, formerly Area Management Plans) are developed to comprehensively address an area's changing conditions and acknowledge the needs of diverse user groups.
A CAP is a comprehensive, implementation-based neighborhood (or area) curbside and parking plan that addresses resident, business, and property owner parking challenges and concerns, explores alternative curbside management strategies, and identifies recommendations. They are designed to address an area’s changing conditions (density, redevelopment, a reduction in parking supply, etc.) and acknowledge the needs of all user groups.
The process engages the public and a stakeholder committee working group to identify parking challenges and management solutions. Recommendations are typically implemented within 9 months to 1 year and result in the introduction (and modification) of various parking/curbside restrictions through the installation of parking signs.
The initiation of a CAP is based on available resources, staff capacity, and prioritized by areas and neighborhoods with the greatest parking management need. Additional considerations include:
