About The Colfax Collaborative 

The Colfax Collaborative is a joint effort of four Colfax Avenue Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) who work to make their districts clean, safe, and friendly.

The Colfax Collaborative has launched a petition requesting the inclusion of $500,000 in the 2017 budget for these projects. This funding would pay for the design and engineering of the proposed safety enhancements: 

  • A new pedestrian crossing at Fairfax Avenue. 

  • A pedestrian activated signal with median and left turn controls along with pedestrian bulbouts at Madison Avenue. 

  • Pedestrian bulbouts, enhanced pedestrian signals with a leading pedestrian interval and pedestrian crossing countdown timers, and a median island at Adams Street. 

  • Restriping to allow for on street parking between Jackson and Harrison streets on the north side of Colfax. 

  • Pedestrian bulbouts, median islands, and enhanced pedestrian crossing signals with a leading pedestrian interval and pedestrian crossing countdown timers at intersections between Utica and Osceola Streets. 

  • North/South bike infrastructure improvements & traffic calming features on Perry Street, Lowell Boulevard, Knox Court, and Irving Street.

The organization is governed by a board of directors representing area businesses and property owners and appointed by the Mayor of Denver. As an organization, the Colfax BID exists to promote economic vitality, implement a clean and safe street program and advocate on behalf of area businesses among public and private partners.
