Parker Road Corridor Plan

Parker Road is a significant regional corridor, the primary north/south highway through the Town, and is often the first and sometimes the only impression that visitors have of Parker. While this highway is a key identifying feature, it does not currently reflect the high quality of life or aesthetics that the residents of Parker currently value, and in fact has a significant impact on the Town as a barrier for east/west traffic, pedestrians, bicyclists, and commerce.

The purpose of this project is to create and integrate a corridor-specific vision and goals related to land use, economics, urban form, and multi-modal transportation that will provide an identity more closely aligned with the Town’s vision, Master Plan and Transportation Master Plan, and more reflective of residents’ desires and standards.

We will be looking to business and property owners, community leaders and the public to inform the plan. This process starts with listening to the community and identifying issues and opportunities in and around the Corridor. We will then take what we have heard and use that feedback to inform and develop possible alternative solutions. These will be reviewed and refined by community members and leaders and will result in a final vision and goals for the future of the corridor.
