At its October 15 meeting, the Littleton City Council unanimously approved the city's new Comprehensive Plan. The plan is a result of Envision Littleton, community-driven engagement process to plan for the next 20 years.
During the engagement process, city staff and community volunteers attended hundreds of community events, small-group sessions, personal interviews with Littleton residents, businesses and visitors, resulting in more than 8,300 in-person conversations and over 70,000 electronic communications. These connections sought to build awareness, encourage idea-sharing, create partnerships, and build lasting relationships.
City council also adopted its first Transportation Master Plan (TMP) as part of the Comprehensive Plan. The TMP provides the city a better opportunity to partner with surrounding cities, not only for projects, but also for funding opportunities on the local and federal level.
The new TMP, in concert with the Comprehensive Plan, emphasizes the critical link between land use and an effective multi-modal transportation system. This is the first-ever plan of its type for Littleton and will equip the city with the ability to identify and review a complete network of transportation, including the city's roadways, two light rail stations, bus routes, bike lanes, sidewalks and trails.
