When development is proposed it goes through a process with the City through both internal teams and City Council for approval. This process requires developers to complete traffic studies on existing traffic demand and projections for future traffic demands once the project is complete and even 10 to 20 years into the future.
The City holds developers accountable for building the appropriate infrastructure for the proposed plans and any impacts to traffic demands through that area.
However, these developers can only be held accountable to the areas they are directly impacting. This is why the City has decided to study the entire Candelas Parkway corridor, as studies up to this point may have been limited to various sections on the corridor and may not have taken a recent, holistic view of the area.
