Interview with Molly Winter

Yesterday, May 11, Brandon and I met with Molly Winter.  She has been the Director of the Downtown and University Hill Management Division and Parking Services for the City of Boulder since 1993.  For more information on her go to http://tinyurl.com/4y3eums.    Thanks Molly!

Here are the main things we learned:
1. Euclid and Broadway bus stop is the highest boarded stop for all of RTD including Union Station.
2.  Challenges include:  Uni-Hill is small, only 10 blocks, compared to Pearl Street at 100+ blocks.  Mixed retails and less expensive restaurants draw a specific crowd, & a higher-end restaurant might have a hard time making it.  There is a lack of public space.
3.  Woonerf- a street where pedestrians and cyclists have legal priority over motorists. The techniques of shared spaces, traffic calming, and low speed limits are intended to improve pedestrian, bicycle, and automobile safety.  The idea of doing a part-time plaza on the Hill is gaining strength.
