What’s New at Mile High Connects

by | Dec 8, 2014

As we move into 2015, you might notice a few changes here at Mile High Connects.  In addition to our brand new website, we’ve spent the past few months honing and refining our workplan to be able to provide a more targeted, coordinated set of efforts to the community for even greater impact in the coming year.  Our work over the next twelve months will focus on four main priority areas:

  • Affordable Housing and Community Facilities
  • Business, Local Workforce and Middle Skilled Jobs
  • Affordable Transit and Meaningful Service Routes
  • First and Last Mile Connections

For more detail about our strategies, view our 2015 Annual Workplan: 2015 Workplan External.

We’ve also brought on some great new folks to help facilitate each priority area.  Help us welcome Jennifer Billig, Stephen Moore, Brad Weinig and Zoe Williams as our Priority Area Coordinators for the coming year.

As you take a look through our new site and see what our workplan has to offer in the coming year, please be on the lookout for ways we might support your work or that you might connect to ours.  We’re always in search of new partners and people aligned with our mission of ensuring that our transit system helps offer access to opportunity for everyone in our community.  Reach out – we’d love to hear from you.
