Clear Creek Transit Village | Adams County, CO

Wild Colorado Five Minutes from Downtown Denver

DESCRIPTION

Clear Creek Transit Village is a TOD located on the Gold Line of the Denver Metro Area FasTracks program.  The Gold Line is slated to start construction in late 2010 and open to the public in 2016.  Located in unincorporated Adams County, this site would give residents both urban and rural amenities.  Downtown Denver is a 5-minute train ride with endless urban amenities.  Clear Creek, a riparian corridor with an adjacent multi-use path, is directly adjacent to the site.  This trail connects in with other regional trails that run to and from Denver and Boulder.  On-site amenities would include a 1-block “Main Street” environment with shops and restaurants and commercial offices to draw employment opportunities to the site.  Other amenities include a kayak park in Clear Creek, a transit plaza and Main Street for festivals and live music, and a car and bicycle sharing program.

VISION

To create a TOD that maximizes access to the rail station and opportunities for residents to access nature, all without getting in a car.
