Is there any way that the Unified Land Use Code can support getting around more easily? I don't know. I am a senior and definitely need to drive to get to my destinations. I think it's unrealistic to think that a large number of people are going to choose biking as their first choice or any choice to get to their destination - especially in winter and other inclement weather. In addition to the elderly and those with physical limitations who need to drive, we have a lot of families in Littleton, and it doesn't seem feasible that they would be biking together to go to church, shopping, school events, sports practices/events with all the necessary equipment etc. It seems like the push for more bike lanes etc. is driven by recreational bikers, not those who choose a bike as an all purpose transportation method. The cost of accommodating the demands of recreational bikers is huge both monetarily and in eliminating space for other vehicles. I don't see the cost/benefit ratio as being acceptable.The people who own cars and other vehicles are the ones who pay for the cost of the roads. With more bike lanes the majority of the population is inconvenienced, and the bikers do not share the cost of accommodations made for them.

I think more people would use the bus or light-rail if: They had reason to use, I.e. go downtown. Also time to use. With families and daycare and school drop/pick up bus is not convenient. Light rail does not apply. Bus loops aren’t great and bus stops mostly don’t have shelters so not great when waiting in weather. Maybe if buses were more localized like the shopping cart that might help some but still a convenience issue for most working families. I think many use light rail if going downtown for events.

Here are my ideas for making getting to places in a more comfortable way. Wider detached sidewalks and slower speeds on streets. Most traffic in Littleton is not from Littleton but from passers through from highlands ranch and jeffco. They just are trying to get from home to work and back as quickly as possible and happen to need to go through Littleton. Speeds on Broadway and Littleton blvd are scary when walking or cycling. Tree lawn and detached walks help along Littleton blvd.
I would shop local if I could walk to neighborhood stores and shops if I could walk to them. No
Is there any way that the Unified Land Use Code can support getting around more easily? Land Use Code can require improvement associated with connectivity for new development however, depending on requirements could drive away or discourage some redevelopment. I don’t think issue is accessibility. There are plenty of sidewalks, paths and bike lanes around town. It comes down to two things: convenience, time to walk/bike to places and having good and relevant local shopping opportunities. Littleton lacks a good commercial base.

I think more people would use the bus or light-rail if: They went places I want to go, ran more often, had stops close enough for me to walk to them, had enough parking for me to park, and if there were a way for me to get my groceries home once I got to the station.

Here are my ideas for making getting to places in a more comfortable way. This is a trick question. There's no bus stop of light rail station close enough to walk, and I'm a champion walker.
I would shop local if I could walk to neighborhood stores and shops if I could walk to them. No
Is there any way that the Unified Land Use Code can support getting around more easily? no--I would still need to carry things in my car. I'm not going to carry 4 bags of groceries no matter how close the store it.
