Silverman Park Pop-Up Traffic Safety Demonstration (Montbello, Denver)

Join us in Montbello for a one-day traffic calming demonstration on Saturday, June 15! Montbello Walks, Montbello 20/20, Councilwoman Stacie Gilmore, and WalkDenver will be hosting a Vision Zero “pop-up" demonstration event at Silverman Park to encourage drivers to slow down, improve pedestrian and bicycle connectivity, and make the intersection at Andrews Dr & Tulsa Ct a safer and more pleasant place to access the park. Multiple shifts are available between 8am and 5pm on June 15 (vary from 1 1/2 to 3 hours). Volunteers are needed the day of the event for set-up, tear-down, and data collection and one week prior to the event for additional data collection. For more information and to sign up, visit bit.ly/silverman-volunteer!

WHAT IS A POP-UP DEMONSTRATION?

A pop-up traffic calming demonstration uses low-cost materials like colorfully painted tires and spotted beach balls to temporarily display a safer street. Pop-ups can demonstrate elements such as crosswalks, curb extensions, landscaping, and artwork to show how easy it is to make changes to the street that would make the neighborhood safer and more inviting for people to walk, bike, and take transit.

WHAT IS VISION ZERO?

The Denver Vision Zero Action Plan is a five-year plan to set the city on a clear path to achieve zero traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030. WalkDenver, the Denver Department of Public Health and Environment and Denver Public Works are partnering on the Vision Zero Community Program, an exciting initiative that is giving teams of community members an opportunity to design a project to increase awareness of Vision Zero and promote safer streets in their neighborhoods.
