The Plan

In mid-2019, the city began the development of Westminster's first Transportation and Mobility Plan - a community-driven plan to address near- and long-term multimodal transportation and mobility needs of residents, commuters and visitors. The plan will include goals, objectives, and recommendations for strategic actions and investments to provide safer and more efficient, connected, and accessible transportation options for all demographic sectors of our community including the needs of our youth, aging, disabled and work force populations. Guiding policy recommendations will also be developed to prepare for factors including evolving technologies and advancement in environment and community health. The plan will also identify key corridors for transit, bicycle and pedestrian improvements. 

The Vision and Goals

The Transportation & Mobility Plan vision, currently in development, will be supported by multiple goals, also in development. These goals will be created from existing plans, Westminster’s Strategic Plan, community input, and industry best practices. They will be used to help guide the development of polices and recommendations, prioritization of projects, and plan implementation measures of success. In 2020, the project team will begin to develop measurable objectives and actions to achieve these goals. 

The Process

The development of the Transportation & Mobility Plan began in August 2019 and anticipated to be completed in late 2020.

A consultant team is working with City staff by providing technical expertise and support robust community engagement, in coordination with other citywide and regional plans and projects, including Westminster Forward. Input from the community will be important throughout the plan development process. Local and regional agencies will also be engaged. Thank you to those who participated in-person and online during the summer and fall 2019 Westminster Forward outreach - your feedback will help inform the development of the plan. We'll post of summary of what we've heard in early 2020. Also look for more opportunities to provide input in early 2020. 

The Results

After the plan is developed, progress on the plan's implementation will be provided periodically to the community. The plan will be used to guide city projects, plans and programs.
