The City of Wheat Ridge has hired a planning consultant, MIG. Inc, to assist with the West 44th Avenue Subarea Plan. The plan will focus on West 44th Avenue from Youngfield Street to Kipling; it includes the portion of the City between Clear Creek and I-70. Read more
West 44th Avenue has a mix of conditions that create a unique context for future planning and redevelopment. Although the sidewalks, curbs, pavement, and lighting in the public rights of way are in fairly good condition, there is inconsistency in private property investment and maintenance. The City has taken some important steps, such as updating the Streetscape Design Manual, to require trees along the street, among other improvements, to enhance the overall user experience along the corridor which will be a key part of this subarea plan. The subarea planning process will help to establish a long-range vision and guiding principles for the West 44th Avenue corridor and will guide future development decisions.
