To advocate for the Northwest Rail project as outlined in the RTD Fastracks plan that was adopted by the voters in 2004 by forming community networks with citizens, local governments, and businesses. And to bring solutions and work in partnerships with the Front Range metro communities to help finance, construct, and operate rail in Boulder, Adams and Broomfield counties ensuring that Westminster, Broomfield, Flatiron, Louisville, Boulder, Gunbarrel, and Longmont rail stations are built.
Residents in Adams, Boulder, and Broomfield Counties want the Northwest rail corridor built as soon as possible, so we are asking RTD to:
1. Establish the “Northwest Rail Corridor Fund” that will set aside funds to begin construction of this rail project that will continue from 71st and Lowell and end in Longmont.
2. Earmark all sales tax revenues that come in over annual budget projections and other funds such as those saved from the building of other rail corridors, federal funds that supplant local funds, and other surplus funds to the Northwest Rail Corridor Fund. The Northwest Rail corridor will receive priority funding.
3. No other rail or rail line extension, BRT, trolley or other major RTD construction project can be built before the construction and full funding of the NW rail corridor.
4. Immediately begin to purchase right-of-way, start preliminary engineering, and build out the rail line in segments to uphold the trust of taxpayers in the northwest metro area.
SIGN OUR PETITION.
