    • The Opportunity
      • No cities are well-equipped for this kind of transportation
    • The Opportunity
      • Goal #1: Turn Broomfield into a city that welcomes and promotes alternative transportation
      • Goal #2: As an alternative transportation-friendly city, turn it into an economic development opportunity
    • Wriston’s Law
      • “ Capital (meaning both money and ideas), when freed to travel at the speed of light, “will go where it is wanted, stay where it is well-treated.”
      • - Walter Wriston
    • The Opportunity
      • Currently there are thousands of different kinds of alternative transportation vehicles with virtually no roads or trails to drive them on.
    • The Opportunity
      • A well-defined alternative transportation road/trail network will attract manufacturers and distributors from all over the world.
    • Broomfield’s Trail System
      • Presently there are 253 miles of multi-use paths, sidewalks, soft-surface trails, and on-street bikelanes.
    • Broomfield’s Trail System
      • Some of the most beautiful parts of Broomfield can only be seen from the trails
    • Broomfield’s Trail System
    • Broomfield’s Trail System
    • Broomfield’s Trail System
      • But most are disjointed, few signs or directions, and currently dysfunctional as an alternative transportation system
    • Broomfield’s Trail System
    • Vail’s Trail System
      • Good signs
    • Vail’s Trail System
      • Separate lanes
    • The Process – Step 1
      • Map existing trails
      • Add connecting links
      • Add signage
      • Create long term vision for trails
    • The Process – Step 2
      • Create a transportation network that connects:
      • Schools
      • Library
      • Retail Centers
      • Sports & Recreation Facilities
      • Event Centers
      • City Hall
      • Broomfield Commons
    • The Process – Step 3
      • Develop a rules structure that encourages the “right kind” of vehicles by regulating:
      • Vehicle size
      • Weight
      • Number of Wheels
      • Noise
      • But keep it open enough to promote this kind of activity
    • The Process – Step 4
      • Announce it to the world:
      • “ World’s first alternative transportation-friendly city”
      • Offer economic development incentives
      • Run a series of prize competitions to build momentum
    • Conclusion
      • These vehicles will soon become part of our lives with or without our blessing
      • This is a unique opportunity for Broomfield to take the lead
