As part of the Rocky Mountain Rail Authority’s High-Speed Rail Feasibility Study we have invited key organizations throughout the state to participate in our Community Partnership Program. This collaborative effort aims to engage community leaders statewide in the study.
Community Partnership Program participant organizations can:
- Share study information with members/constituents – A fact sheet is available (here), which organizations can distribute to their members electronically, at meetings or by mail.
- Publish information about the study – A short article is available here (here). Organizations can include this article in appropriate newsletters, email blasts, web sites, eNewsletters, or other publications available to their members.
- Encourage members to directly participate directly in our study – We encourage you to direct people to our web site to learn more about the study, offer comments, and sign-up for our mailing list.
- Schedule a meeting – Members of the RMRA are available to present at board/committee/membership meetings. We also hope to partner with Community Partnership Program organizations to host larger public forums next spring to discuss some of the study’s key findings.
We are committed to conducting this study in an open, transparent and collaborative manner. Partnering with key organizations from across the state to get more people engaged in the study is a critical part of that effort.
If you have any questions about the study or are interested in participating in the Community Partnership Program, please email RMRA@gbsm.com.
In addition to the Community Partnership Program, the Rocky Mountain Rail Authority High-Speed Rail Feasibility Study team has formed three Corridor Input Teams (I-25 Corridor, I-70 Corridor and Denver Metro Area) to provide the study team with input at key milestones in their analysis. The RMRA is coordinating their Corridor Input Teams through the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and Transportation Planning Regions (TPRs) in both corridors, as well as the I-70 Coalition in the I-70 mountain corridor. Membership in RMRA is not required to participate in a Corridor Input Team.
Every municipality, transit/transportation agency, MPO and TPR in the I-70 and I-25 corridors was invited to appoint one elected official and/or one senior staff member as their official representatives on the appropriate Corridor Input Team. These representatives will represent their constituencies at three meetings occurring during the study.
In September 2008, the first round of Corridor Input Team meetings were held as part of the study scoping process. Input received during the meeting was incorporated into the Scoping Report ( here). Presentation materials from the meetings are available ( here).
In December 2008, the second round of Corridor Input Team meetings were held. The meetings provided input on the alternatives that are to be evaluated by the study consultant. Presentation materials from the meetings are available ( here).
In April 2009, a third round of Corridor Input Team meetings were held to see.k input on alternatives that should be retained for further analysis. Presentation materials from the meetings are available ( here).
