Transportation & Mobility Master Plan - (aka Mobility Study)

City to Host Open House for Transportation & Mobility Master Plan 

Manitou Springs residents, business owners, and other stakeholders are encouraged to attend the last community conversation for the Transportation & Mobility Master Plan before final recommendations are made to City Council in January 2020. The final plan will encompass all mobility throughout the city. This is the third community workshop for the plan and will focus on sharing recommendations ranging from expanded transit routes and methods of transit; to modifying streets; enhanced parking; and pedestrian/bicycle/multi-modal improvements. City and Consultant planners and staff will be on hand to gather answer questions.

General Information

Through a collaborative effort, the City of Manitou Springs, City of Colorado Springs and the Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway are undertaking a study to identify opportunities and address improvements that will enhance mobility within the City and connections to adjoining regional areas and transportation systems. The visionary and future-forward plan should advance and evolve community goals identified in Plan Manitou and align with planning/design efforts of other mobility projects.

We believe the outcome of the Mobility Study will impact several projects currently underway including the future of the Hiawatha Gardens footprint. Through this mobility discovery process, we are committed to our values of economic vibrancy, sustainability; support of area businesses and attractions; historical preservation and celebration; good stewardship; and ultimately resilient and effective systems to service our citizens and visitors.
