What do you think of when College & 8th is mentioned?
It needs work. People speed. People almost get hit in crosswalks. And the side walks suck


What do you love about College & 8th?
Nothing right now


What is one thing that you would change about College & 8th?
We need to make the crossings better. With bigger truck route sign so they stop using the residential neighborhood going to the collage the back way. Put in a speed limit sign going up 8th or a stop sign to make four way stop on 8th And 7th coming down the back side of collage.


What is your vision for College and 8th in thirty years?
To get rid of the most seedy hotel that’s houses x-cons and criminals. To have new side walks. Bigger speed signs. New cross walks. It just needs a face lift. Past DNF we need more stop signs. We need speed limit signs past DNF or make the road into a one way coming up to the collage or down from the collage. We need sidewalks past DNF going up to the collage.


What attracts you to a mixed-use (business and residential) area?
The way of life, walking and riding bikes. Not driving. Having a place to live and businesses in walking distance

What do you think of when College & 8th is mentioned?
varied neighborhood with everything you need. Lots of different type or residents, homes, apts, businesses, busy streets, gritty feel (which I like).


What do you love about College & 8th?
has everything I need, stores, gas stations, car repair, restaurants, pawn shop, hair salon, mini mart and health food store, laundramat, etc.


What is one thing that you would change about College & 8th?
fix the sidewalks that are in really bad shape, like at NE corner of College and Third Ave.


What is your vision for College and 8th in thirty years?
Same as today. Do not go through with the road diet, just improve the safety or 8th and College intersection (adjust the light so it makes more sense.) Taking away lanes of traffic on very busy streets makes no sense. Especially if you think about if and when the college closes the front hill, totally changing the traffic patterns.


What attracts you to a mixed-use (business and residential) area?
so walkable and near open space, trails, and businesses.

Tim Walsworth inside Durango December 8, 2018, 9:00 AM

Old buildings, not attractive, and yet this area has good businesses. It has become an area for businesses to start and grow.

Durango Joes, Home Slice, close to Downtown, variety of businesses, next to residential

Move auto repair businesses, improve facades, add residential.

An extension of Downtown, with mixed use buildings lining the corridor and a mix of restaurant, retail and some service based businesses with residential above.


What attracts you to a mixed-use (business and residential) area?
Walkability

Susan Dahl inside Durango December 7, 2018, 6:46 PM

What do you think of when College & 8th is mentioned?
I think of college students catching a bus are riding their bikes.


What do you love about College & 8th?
I think of college students catching a bus are riding their bikes.


What is one thing that you would change about College & 8th?
I love the mixture of cultures in the neighborhood. I love seeing people walking and biking and neighbors talking to each other. I also love the close proximity to Main Street and downtown.


What is your vision for College and 8th in thirty years?
I would love to see some gentrification, but I would like to keep the uniqueness of different styles of housing and different type of people and different ages, too.


What attracts you to a mixed-use (business and residential) area?
It seems more small town to me. It’s convenient to have businesses nearby and encourages walking and biking.

Kelly Brennan inside Durango December 7, 2018, 12:07 PM

What do you think of when College & 8th is mentioned?
I am concerned about the proposed changes, what they may mean for pedestrians and businesses in the area. I am also concerned that if the lanes on College are reduced by half, that traffic will move into the residential areas and am worried about the safety of the residents.


What do you love about College & 8th?
I love the mix of business and residential and that it is an alternative route to driving on a highway.


What is one thing that you would change about College & 8th?
The new single lanes and new traffic light are creating new traffic issues. It seems that the double lanes were more conducive to traffic movement.


What is your vision for College and 8th in thirty years?
I would like to see it stay a mix of a few businesses and a residential area. It has a small town feel, something that everyone who chooses to live in Durango loves.


What attracts you to a mixed-use (business and residential) area?
See previous answer. Thank you.
