    Thank you for your question. Within the City of Lakewood, some streetlights are owned and maintained by Lakewood and some by Xcel.  Lakewood has been replacing/installing their streets lights with LED for over 5 years that conform to dark sky BUG ratings usually.  However, Lakewood still uses 4K fixtures for commercial or highways for the better visibility. The 3K fixtures are used in residential areas.  Lakewood currently has XCEL replacing any HPS fixtures that need repair beyond a bulb with LED fixtures. Most of the fixtures XCEL installs are also 3K and dark skies compliant.

    Thank you for your question about West Colfax Avenue. Lakewood has undertaken several efforts to provide multimodal transportation options on Colfax, discourage future auto-oriented land uses, and facilitate more pedestrian-friendly design outcomes. For example, the West Colfax Safety Project, now in the design stage, will build wider sidewalks for pedestrians to use.  Lakewood recently adopted the 40West ArtLine Framework Plan, which includes zoning recommendations to discourage auto-oriented uses such as gas stations, encourage neighborhood-serving local businesses, and facilitate a range of housing options, including more affordable housing.  The City also recently adopted Design Standards and Guidelines for the ArtLine, which will encourage more pedestrian-friendly streetscape and ground floor building design outcomes for new development on Colfax.

    What is the plan for improving cycling infrastructure?

    Your question has gone unanswered, and I apologize for that. I'm working with the project team to get information to you today.

    Thank you for your question and for your patience. During the Comprehensive Plan update process we will be discussing a number of topics including the vision for multimodal transportation. Lakewood’s Bicycle System Master Plan currently outlines goals and strategies to improve the cycling infrastructure. 

    While the Comprehensive Plan acknowledges multimodal transportation as an important part of Lakewood's future, the Bicycle System Master Plan is also being updated in 2024-2025 and will look deeper into adding and improving cycling infrastructure throughout the City. Watch for a Lakewood Together site dedicated to that update in the spring.

    The process for the Comprehensive Plan is starting this month and will continue throughout 2024 and 2025. We will be posting updates to this website and will include all the ways to participate and share your input at each step of the process.
