Section 1 of the bill requires state agencies to prioritize awarding
grants that satisfy a list of criteria described in the bill.
Sections 2 and 3 require, beginning January 1, 2025, upon
updating a county or municipal master plan, a county or municipality
(local government) to include a climate action element in its master plan.
A climate action element must include climate-related goals, plans, or
strategies and a description of any money from the federal, state, or a
local government that a local government has received for the
implementation of any of the plans or goals described in the climate
action element.
The bill requires a local government to provide the Colorado
energy office (office) with the climate action element and then requires
the office to deliver a copy of any climate element it receives to the
department of local affairs, the Colorado department of transportation
(CDOT), and any other state agency that the office determines.
Section 4 requires CDOT to coordinate with metropolitan planning
organizations to establish criteria that define growth corridors and
identify these growth corridors. Having identified these growth corridors,
the department and metropolitan planning organizations shall coordinate
with local governments to develop transportation demand management
plans for these growth corridors.
Section 5 makes 2 changes related to the statewide transportation
plan. First, the bill requires the statewide transportation plan to include:
  • An examination of the impact of transportation decisions
on land use patterns;
  • The identification of highway segments where promotion
of context-sensitive highway permitting and design can
encourage the development of dense, walkable, and
mixed-use neighborhoods in transit-oriented centers and
neighborhood centers; and
  • An emphasis on integrating planning efforts within CDOT
to support multimodal transportation, neighborhood
centers, and transit-oriented centers in infill areas as well
as growth corridors through the associated transportation
demand management corridor planning.
Second, the bill requires CDOT to conduct a study in connection with the
statewide transportation plan that identifies:
  • Policy barriers and opportunities for the implementation of
context-sensitive design, complete streets, and
pedestrian-bicycle safety measures in locally-identified
urban centers and neighborhood centers; and
  • The portions of state highways that pass through locally
identified transit-oriented centers and neighborhood centers
that are candidates for context-sensitive design, complete
streets, and pedestrian-bicycle safety measures.
