NMW provides direct technical assistance to communities across the Rocky Mountain West to address specific challenges or opportunities at the nexus of transportation and community development.
Assistance projects will be tailored to local needs and opportunities and will take place over two to four months.
Although there are many categories of assistance available, here are three examples of issues addressed by our Community Assistance programs:
State Highways in Communities
Communities and state departments of transportation (DOTs) are commonly confronted with an array of challenges when a highway runs through a downtown, along a main street or through other areas. NMW assistance will help communities and DOTs create win-win solutions that address both transportation and community goals.
Local Capital Improvement Planning and Investment
Cities, towns and counties must maximize the return on their investment in transportation infrastructure. At the same time, market demand is pushing for projects that address multiple modes of transportation. NMW assistance will help communities take a strategic approach to capital planning and investment to expand mobility options while improving the community and attracting new investment.
Reshaping Commercial Corridors
A growing number of communities are looking to reshape outdated commercial strips into more vibrant and walkable places. Assistance will focus on helping communities revitalize outmoded corridors as well as expand mobility options.
