Many new developments in the City and County of Denver will be required to plan, implement, and monitor transportation demand management (TDM) programs at their site. The new requirements raise two key questions:
- How does the development community feel about being required to do TDM?
- What do they feel the pros and cons of this requirement on their projects?
W+A’s latest Transportation Topics Video discussion explores this issue.
W+A’s TDM Team Principal Courtney Menjivar moderates this discussion with thought leaders in the Denver development community to share their unique perspectives on this new TDM requirement.
- Nate Abbott, a Site Development Project Manager with Galloway & Company, who provides the perspective of someone who leads the development review process for his developer clients.
- Heidi Thorne, a TDM Planner who provides the perspective of someone who leads the development of TDM plans and has been monitoring the impact of Denver’s TDM ordinance.
- Chris Waggett, a founder of D4 Urban, who provides the perspective of a developer who has incorporated TDM into his Denver-based sustainable, mixed use, transport-orientated, and urban community developments before requirements were being approved.
They explore their concerns with TDM regulations as well as the value proposition and potential ROI it offers to new developments.
