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.

  • Parker Road Corridor Plan Update

    about 1 month ago

    Thank you for checking back in to the PRCP project website! After the December 2018 Community Workshop #2, consultant Kimley-Horn and the Town continued coordination meetings with the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) - reviewing draft alternatives from the Design Alternatives Methodology & Conceptual Costs document. This document can be found in the Document Library on the right side of this page.

    Kimley-Horn continues to draft the plan components and a consolidated public draft is expected late summer, so check back again to view the draft Parker Road Corridor Plan.

    Feel free to continue to leave comments in the 'Comments'...

    Save the Date!


    We will be hosting a community open house on Dec. 5 at the PACE Center from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to review initial land use, transportation and urban design recommendations for the corridor. For more information, please visit the project website at www.ParkerOnline.org/ParkerRoadCorridorPlan or contact Associate Planner Mary Munekata at mmunekata@parkeronline.org or 303.841.2332.

    Project Background

    The Parker Road Corridor Plan project is in full swing! Planning staff, along with consultant Kimley-Horn, recently completed Community Workshop #1 and Community Focus Groups and are continuing stakeholder outreach with Town departments and project partners, including CDOT, RTD, the E-470 Authority, Douglas County and the City of Aurora.

    The Parker Road Corridor Plan will be an updated community vision that addresses changing land uses, multi-modal transportation needs and urban design strategies to guide future growth and development in the corridor over the next 20+ years.

    The consultant is currently examining the corridor’s existing conditions and key influences. Next steps include a revised corridor vision and goals, and development of a land use and transportation framework plan (‘roadmap’) that will provide initial recommendations and strategies for future desired outcomes in the corridor.
