  • How well do the issues and opportunities identified for each topic reflect your impressions of the Belleview Avenue corridor? For each topic, are there other issues and/or opportunities you would add? If so, please explain.

    The issue of Accessibly (sidewalks) must be turned into an Opportunity. If sidewalks are designed for comfort, adequate width and safety from traffic, then they will be used by people to get around. Sidewalks should be designed as pedestrian hi-ways or roadways, with every consideration being safety and comfort, and separation from the roads. Accommodation for cars should be secondary to walking. We need to get away from the road centric designs that are common of post WWI cities. Doing this will also increase connectivity to the greenway. Sidewalks will not be used if they are directly adjacent from the road, and cannot be kept clean for walking.

    The topics identify the issues very well.

    It is a rare that any single family neighborhood is very distinctive. Exceptions are Arapahoe Hills, or Bomar, but most neighborhoods have similar characteristics as all the other denver metropolitan areas with similar style and age of buildings. People like their neighborhoods because they are familiar with them. Improving connectivity through walking increases peoples connection to their neighborhood, walking slows you down and allows one to intimately become more familiar with your surroundings.

    There needs to adequate public restrooms.

    • Signing can only do so much to create identity. They also become outdated very quickly, are extremely expensive, just look at the multiple signage attempts for DownTown Littleton. If intimate pedestrian orient spaces are create, using the principles of the Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander, a distinct identity can be created over time. Some of these spaces are being created right now in areas.

    Well designed sidewalks and pedestrian pathways. Move them away from Bellevue. Provide a separate pedestrian bridge over the Platte River adjacent to the Bellevue bridge, so pedestrians feel safe walking.

    Why the focus on single family!!! The entire Riverwalk area, the former cenntenial race track, is a high density multifamily development, very successful with high property values. There should be greater pedestrian connections to Bellevue from this area, which is currently lacking or difficult at best. The new developments north of Bellevue on Prince are high density multi-family. There is opportunity to create new neighborhood identities, but there needs to be a broad demographic mix of residents to create this dynamic.

    Retailer Attraction Incentives need to focus on small business, not large business, and defiantly not big boxes. Large areas with many small businesses of mixed uses, attract the largest numbers of pedestrians, which in turn create intimate spaces, (sometime not by design). These business should be turned inward, away for the main streets, which result in quieter more intimate spaces. Small business create more jobs per Square foot.

    There is way too much surface parking in this area. It should be removed if over designed, necessarily occupied with food trucks. The Building codes should be adjusted to reduce required parking to the actual business need, not just determined by building square footage. For Example, the Lowe's parking lot is over designed by at least 50% based on the actual use. If pedestrian use is to be encouraged, then parking needs to be located on the edges of the development, not the interior.

    Underutilized surface parking lots should be removed. Why keep them if they are not being used. Development them into softer more sustainable areas with vegetation, water absorbing surfaces, and smaller heatsink areas . Food trucks could be parked soft surface areas.

  • Are there other issues you would add? What opportunities would you like to see explored for this site?

    It is confusing to navigate because it is an organic design parking lot with many access points.

  • As this site redevelops over time, what would you like to see?

    High densityMulti family housing serving a variety of income and lifestyle needs. The price of the land is the same, whether there are tradition single family houses or higher density housing. More people living close to the Bellevue corridor area better supports a variety of small businesses, restaurants and coffee shops as the base supporting businesses in between. This comment also applies to the other areas.

    Multiple Sewer districts are an impediment to development!!!. Come on. These are artificially created government entities. Just combine them into one. I am sure they all flow to the same sewage treatment plant, why should the waste have separate identities. Lets not let artificial boundaries inhibit creative design solutions.

  • Are there other issues you would add? What opportunities would you like to see explored for this site?

    I use this area alot. Even if all the retail space were to be occupied, there is still too much parking. The parking is open and expansive. Just look at the arial photograph, most of the site is hard surfaced and except for the shops near the Egg and Eye, turns its back to the river. The parking lots along the river should be replace with smaller businesses, that face the river. There is good trail connectivity to the parking, just nothing to go to. I do not think the lack of visibility from Bellevue is the reason for tenant problems. It could be the tremendous sea of parking lots, common to all the areas in this study area. People do not like to and do not feel safe walking across parking lots. The design of buildings need to address pedestrian access over parking connivence. It is possible that this entire area is over saturated with marginal business with nodirect architectural focus. DT littleton is doing well because of its intimate authentic identity. The Streets of South Glen, while a nice intimate design, has the same issues as this area with high vacancy rates. Perhaps there is too much retail and not enough small businesses.

    I had to stop reviewing. There is too much information and it is hard to follow on the web site. It would have been better to have it broken up in to separate response questions.

CORRIDOR ENHANCEMENTS EXERCISE

Physical improvements are both necessary and important to enhance pedestrian safety and connectivity throughout the Belleview Corridor. These physical improvements may include infill of sidewalks, enhancements to intersections, new pedestrian crossings and signage, and any other improvements to the current infrastructure that will make all modes of travel safer and more comfortable. This exercise is intended to capture your thoughts and ideas on what types of physical improvements are most needed in the Belleview Corridor.
