The Colorado Department of Transportation recently drafted a new rule that would require state and local governments to measure and potentially offset greenhouse gas emission impacts of transportation projects. In this scheme, local government entities would have preset greenhouse gas emission budgets, and would be required to offset emissions if they exceed those budgets when implementing transportation projects. That could take the form of transit services, bicycle infrastructure, zoning decisions that enable density, et cetera. If these public entities do not meet requirements and don't offset emissions, then the state may restrict their use of certain funds. (Note that this is literally the wording of the legislation itself: "certain funds." It doesn't specify which funds.) This, of course, all comes as CDOT is slated to receive billions of dollars of new funding from the state and the federal government. The intent of the new rule, then, would be to shift conditions that are currently enabling status quo infrastructure investment that would continue to spread Colorado's development pattern out farther and farther. This week on Upzoned, Abby and Chuck take a look at an article from Colorado Public Radio that tackles this subject and they "upzone" it—i.e., they look at it through the Strong Towns lens. They talk about what does and doesn't work with the top-down, bureaucratic approach this legislation is taking to address our development and climate issues. Then, in the downzone, Chuck is following up on old characters, and Abby's gearing up for a fun trip.

VOLKSWAGEN HANDS CEO DIESS CONTRACT EXTENSION AHEAD OF STRATEGY PRESENTATION - Volkswagen on Friday handed Chief Executive Herbert Diess a contract extension under which he will lead the carmaker until October 2025, the group said, a victory made possible by the recent departure of works council head Bernd Osterloh. - Volkswagen's supervisory board was discussing a two-year extension to Diess' contract, which would have expired in 2023 - Diess will be able to see through an ambitious goal Europe's largest carmaker has set itself by the middle of the decade, namely becoming the world's leading electric vehicle player and overtaking key rival Tesla - "The Supervisory Board believes that under the leadership of Dr. Diess conditions will be optimal for the continued successful development of the entire company in the coming years as well, especially in view of Strategy 2030," said VW chairman Hans Dieter Poetsch.

Now, a large portion of EU recovery funds – 4.3 billion euros ($5.1 billion USD) – will reportedly go toward a Spanish EV investment that aims to ramp up electric vehicle and battery production in the country, according to Reuters. - The EV investment is part of a broader 13 billion euro incentive geared toward sustainable transportation, which is expected to grow by five percent by 2030. Spanish officials expect that government initiatives will increase the number of EVs registered in the country from 18,000 in 2020 to 250,000 in 2023, create 140,000 new jobs - the European Union is reportedly planning on tightening its emissions standards in the coming weeks that will effectively result in a new ICE vehicle ban by the year 2030.

But federal law that prevents the commercialization of interstate right-of-ways — including rest areas, park-and-rides, and similar facilities across the country — is preventing that. A change to that law, which has CDOT's support, is part of the $715 billion transportation bill the U.S. House passed last week. - The existing federal law dates back to the early 1960s and was intended to protect and promote private businesses — gas stations and the like — along highways. The federal government cited it in turning down a state plan to add charging stations to the Burlington Welcome Center on the Eastern Plains, CDOT officials said in a letter to the state's U.S. House delegation. - The House bill containing the law change now moves to the Senate, which is considering its own transportation proposal. How differences between the two will be reconciled remains unclear so far. The White House has been supportive of both, the Washington Post reported.

That's why you're seeing 2021 Bolts priced to move. But what's different this time is, pricing on the 2022 Bolt is a lot lower, starting at $31,995. That's roughly $5,500 off the MSRP for the current base model. And the slightly larger 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV, starts at $33,995. The 2022 Bolts will include options such as adaptive cruise control and GM's Super Cruise (hands-free-driving) tech — both firsts for the Bolt.

The company aims to manufacture 15% of the world's e-scooters by summer of 2022 and will also be looking to export these scooters. - Ola Electric's EV manufacturing plant is said to be the largest in the world.

We turn on Drag Strip Mode. What that does is it lights up the Drag Strip Mode here and says, ‘conditioning for peak power performance.' From past experience, this only takes two to three minutes. Gone are the days of the previous Teslas which are taking 40–45 minutes, draining the battery down before you get that run.” - Brooks explained that the best run was 9.24, which was a tie with the current record set by Jay Leno. Their best numbers are as follows: 0–60 mph: 2.01 seconds 0–100 km/h: 2.11 seconds 0–100 mph: 4:19 seconds 0–130 mph: 6.99 seconds 0–150 mph: 9.17 seconds Original Source : https://cleantechnica.com/2021/07/12/dragtimes-takes-tesla-plaid-model-s-for-performance-testing/ A REPAIR WOULD COST $16,000 AT TESLA: THE ELECTRIFIED GARAGE DID IT FOR $700 - Donald Bone drove over some debris on the road, and something broke in his Model 3. The coolant leaked, and he was worried. Tesla told him Bone could drive to a Service Center. He took the car to one, and they detected the vehicle had a broken port. When Bone thought the repair would cost $800, he received news that he would have to pay $16,000 to replace the entire battery pack. - His car did not have comprehensive coverage because he just switched his former car with the Model 3, and his insurance company did not want to pay for the repair. Without options, Bone asked for help in Tesla forums, and someone told him about the Electrified Garage. - The bottom line is that Tesla Service Centers do not perform part replacements, just assembly replacements. In other words, if something small breaks or has to be replaced, they replace the whole module that includes it. - As Bone said, he had the right to keep his old battery pack if he had paid $16,000 for a new one, something that the Service Center was not very willing to accept.

This needs to be thought through: fleets cannot merely install a few sockets and hope for the best. A thorough understanding of the fleet's needs, use cases and deployment is required. Businesses must ask themselves: will vehicles charge only overnight at the depot, or will they be taken home by drivers and charged there? Will these vehicles often drive beyond their range, meaning public or ultra-fast DC charging will be needed for a quick turnaround at the depot? - Early adopters of EV fleets have already realised the 20-25% cost savings that come from greater efficiency, more affordable fuelling and reduced maintenance, putting themselves in a pole position for expansion as more vehicles become available and the policy environment moves further towards electrification.

Good morning and welcome to Montrose Fresh, from The Montrose Daily Press. It's Monday May10th and we're here to bring you a closer look at our top stories, events and more that matter to us here in Western Colorado. Today - City council has voted to approve a resolution authorizing city staff to file for a grant with the Colorado Department of Transportation for their Revitalizing Main Streets Program. Today's episode is brought to you by Elevate Internet. Whether it's for your home or your business they offer the best speeds at the best price. Right now, if you refer a friend you can get $25 off! Give them a call for more information at 844-386-8744 or visit them at elevateinternet.com. - Now, our feature story. City council voted unanimously to approve a resolution authorizing city staff to file for a grant with the Colorado Department of Transportation. It'll be for their Revitalizing Main Streets Program. City Grant Coordinator Kendall Cramer said CDOT's Revitalizing Main Streets Program was made possible through a $30 million allocation from the state legislature. It was part of Colorado's COVID-19 Recovery Plan. The program is meant to help communities across the state put transportation-related projects into place. These projects should improve safety and give long-term benefits to Main Streets. It'll also aim to support downtowns where people work, dine and shop. As Colorado recovers from COVID-19 and returns to a new normal, this program will help Montrose find innovative ways to reuse public spaces and help businesses reopen safely. How? Complete Street. Complete Street is an approach to planning roadways that are safe, convenient, and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities. Things like sidewalks, street crossings, bike lanes, raised medians, and signals are all eligible for funding. Cramer said city staff recently met with CDOT and they were encouraged to think creatively. And CDOT is especially interested in assisting rural communities. So Montrose is currently working to develop a conceptual design for the West Main Street corridor. The City will apply for the “Larger Safety Infrastructure Grant” with CDOT. The amount is up to $2 million for improvements. So what can you expect from this plan? A road template that maximizes sidewalk width. Sidewalk modifications that will create seating areas. More focus on American Disability Act-compliant sidewalks. And a bike path. The total project won't exceed $2.4 million. And the grant application is due later this week on May 14th. To read more about this story visit us at montrosepress.com - And before we go we'd like to highlight Riverside Gardens is back for its first full season since 2017. It was originally established in 2004 by Cliff Holveck. But the property has since been sold to David Coker and John Reams. After trying their hand in the hemp business and finding little success, they would return to the former layout of Riverside Gardens. Debra Beck, who worked at Riverside Gardens for 15 years, has been instrumental and in June 2020 she took the lead. Coker plans on having 10 employees during the season. And with the purchase of an additional two acres they'll have a total of ten acres. They'll also have an RV park. With the demand for RV resorts being high, the owners thought they had the perfect location. It'll include 42 total sites: 21 full service-with water and power, and 21 limited service sites. Along with a general store to sell basic necessities, the intent is to have limited services ready by July of 2021. But it's taking a little longer than planned. Still, the goal is to have limited services ready by July. - That's all for today, thank you for listening! For more information on any of these stories visit us at montrosepress.com.

Welcome to Montrose Fresh, from The Montrose Daily Press. It's FridayApril 16th, and we're here with local news, events, announcements, jobs, and more that matter to us here in Western Colorado. Today - Little Blue Creek Canyon's makeover is starting this Monday - April 19th. So, what do you need to know? Today's episode is brought to you by Elevate Internet. Whether it's for your home or your business they offer the best speeds at the best price. Right now, if you refer a friend you can get $25 off! Give them a call for more information at 844-386-8744 or visit them at www.elevateinternet.com. Now, our feature story… Little Blue Creek Canyon's makeover is starting this Monday - April 19th. The Colorado Department of Transportation and project managers held a tour of the project area earlier this month. The tour aimed to give stakeholders a better understanding of the project called “Little Blue.” Senator Don Coram was there, along with Transportation Commissioner Kathy Hall, and David Coker. The Federal Highway Administration-Central Federal Lands Chief of Engineering Curtis Scott and American Civil Constructors Mountain West (ACC) Project Manager John Butcher spearheaded the tour with CDOT members to explain the details of Little Blue. So here's what you should know. The project will take place on pile points 123 through 127. There will be full roadway closures Monday through Friday starting at 8:30 and lasting until 5:30 with a pause for an hour at 12:30. Closures will also happen on weeknights from 7:30pm until 6:30am. There are a few windows of time when you'll be able to travel through, so you should plan accordingly. It's also important to note that there will be just one lane open, so traffic will move slowly. Luckily CDOT is working to make sure there is cell coverage in the area for those waiting in traffic. On weekends there will be full passageway - no restrictions. The improvements that'll come from the project include a 4-foot shoulder on each side of the highway. This will flatten the “blind” curves. Travelers will be able to drive through the area without stressing about what is ahead of them. The improvement is meant to cut down on the amount of accidents around mile marker 124. So how long will the construction last? Well, there will be two seasons to the project. This first season will take place until winter arrives. The second season is slated to begin next April. There will be a large turnaround after the bridge by Blue Mesa Reservoir, and project team members plan to place a flagger to wave everyone down if they live nearby, where they can drive into a queue and turn around as needed.

The museum includes over 500,000 artifacts. Among the more notable pieces in the collection are boxing gloves from 1920s heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey. They also have playing cards signed by Sitting Bull from when he toured with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show. Even stirrups from a 16th century Spanish conquistador. However, most of the pieces in the museum are more common. Pieces that help a visitor to get a better impression of what life was like for the average pioneer living in the Rocky Mountains in the late-19th century. - And finally, before we go we'd like to remember the life of Kathleen Yvonne Hass who was born in 1934 in New London, Wisconsin. Kathleen was baptized in Christ at Emanuel Lutheran Church. She graduated valedictorian from high school. She went on to further her schooling entering into the medical profession. Kathleen met her future husband, Gerald “Jerry” at a dance. They were married in 1953. They were married for 59 years before Jerry went home to the Lord in 2013. Kathy and Jerry had moved to Montrose from Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1966 with their two sons, Tom and Mark. A third son, Paul, was born soon after they arrived. Kathy and Jerry became members of Zion Lutheran Church that year as well. Though Kathy was ready to go home, her survivors were not. Kathy is survived by her brother her sons, her daughter-in-law, her grandchildren, her church family from Zion Lutheran, and her many friends. Thank you for taking a moment with us today to remember and celebrate Kathy's life. - That's all for today, thank you for listening!

Welcome to Montrose Fresh, from The Montrose Daily Press. It's FridayJanuary 8th, and we're here with local news, events, announcements, jobs, and more that matter to us here in Western Colorado.

As we enter the new year we also encourage you to visit montrosepress.com to take a look at the Top Moments and Top Stories of 2020 that we've compiled. Now, our feature story. Despite a protest this past summer, the Little Blue Canyon Project will go on as scheduled. John Knowles, the Central Federal Lands Highway Division manager for the project said that the project has been awarded to American Civil Constructors of Littleton. But, district 6 Colorado Senator Don Coram intends to put up a roadblock. According to Coram, it's not over. Coram said he's working with the leadership in the Senate to try and develop a worthy solution. According to Knowles the decisions for how to handle traffic on the road during the construction is primarily the call of ACC. The contractor is a familiar entity in the infrastructure development arena in Colorado. It has actually been the primary contractor for the I-70 construction around Glenwood Springs. The project is backed by the FHWA and CFLHD, as well as the USDA, the Department of Interior, and Colorado Federal Lands Access Program. CDOT got a $20 million grant through FLAP to initially fund the project and then added another $20 million in state money to get it done. While Colorado owns the highway, the federal government is doing the project. And the decision on the road closure schedules was very much left to the contractor Knowles said the closures expected over the next two years are the same ones that were announced last summer. Back in August this announcement drew strong criticism of Western Slope ag producers as well as stakeholders like Arrowhead Mountain Lodge. The lodge expects a major, if not business-killing, impact from the project. Others adversely affected include ranchers, Montrose Forest Products, and the entire tourism industry. And the tourism industry has already been damaged by the pandemic. The project affects about 3 miles of the vital east west link in western Colorado. Work will straighten the road between mileposts 123 and 126.8. To skirt the project, motorists could go through Delta, Hotchkiss, Crawford and over the Blue Mesa dam, which adds about 90 minutes to the trip. To learn more, or to find the full list of the closures - which without action by the Legislature - would begin in April of this year on our website. Now, some local history.

In 1905 Dalton Trumbo was born in Montrose. He also lived in Grand Junction and worked for the Grand Junction Sentinel. He became a screenwriter in Hollywood, but was fired on suspicion of Anti-american sentiments. Even after he was blacklisted he still wrote screenplays - including Roman Holiday. And finally, before we go we'd like to take a moment to remember the life of Ronald Kenneth Dellen Darling. He was born and raised in Indiana, and then moved to Glendale, California, at the age of 11. He was accepted to Los Angeles Valley College on a football scholarship, and then served in the Army - stationed in Alaska. Together with his first wife, Sharon, he had two children, four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. While working as a manager at Sears he met his second wife, Suzanne, with whom he raised Stephanie and Kristian. Together they had three children, four more grandchildren. Ron had a beautiful friendship, full of adventure and love, with Etta Walker, and played a very important part in the life of her daughter. He continued to enjoy special times, full of family and fitness, with his third wife, Sara, and had the privilege of being part of the lives of her children. In his most recent years, he enjoyed many happy times and dances with his dear friend Maryanne Love. Ronald always had a knack as an entrepreneur, and began his own business flipping houses and developing shopping centers. He also had a deep love of travel, and enjoyed taking in different cultures around the world in a way that made him feel like a local. He traveled by train all over Europe, hiked Machu Picchu, skydived over the plains of the Las Vegas desert, and went paragliding off the coast of California. He was immersed in the culture of Miramar, gazed over Lake Como in Italy, went on safaris in South Africa, and explored the beauty of Iceland. He found joy in riding camels in Egypt, making friends all over Scotland, going on a road trip around Australia, and sampling specialty pastries all along the coast of Italy. Montrose was Ron's beloved home for the last 19 years. He lived a full, vibrant life and was proud to have done it his own way. Thank you for taking a moment today to remember and celebrate his life.

We're joined by Cdot for this weeks edition of The Forum. Cdot can't help but mention his Mizzou Tigers who are having a strong start to their college basketbal season. We also discuss the love for Alex Smith in Kansas City, and Cody has a question about Kansas football. We took a look at the Chiefs RB usage after Clyde was held out this for for Bell and Williams due to an illness. The Chiefs RB's all seem to have a role in the offense and it's hard to have an issue with how they've been used. The Chiefs will face a former pass rusher on Sunday who they let walk this past offseason. He's currently having a better season than any of the Chiefs pass rushers.

The day has officially arrived between the Chiefs and Ravens! This is one of the biggest games of the early NFL season against the two best teams in football.

The AFC after week 1 looks like it's between two teams which has been the entire off season narrative. The Ravens were absolutely dominant over the Browns yesterday. It had a very Chiefs feel from their win over the Texans on Thursday. The Ravens just made the destruction of the Browns feel easy. There is plenty of time for the AFC to catch up but it's clearly top heavy with the two best teams in the NFL. Running backs are all of a sudden getting paid big time, and Cdot already dropped one game in Survivor. The Royals are quietly on a 6 game win streak and the Patriots had a very different season opener than the Bucs. See omnystudio.com/policies/listener for privacy information.
We’re joined by Carrington Harrison for this weeks edition of the Forum. Champion Dot is awfully confident in himself for this year Survivor League. We also discuss Carrington’s Chiefs outlook and why he thinks the 49ers could take a step back. Washington is trying to frame the Dan Snyder situation like they passed the investigation off to the NFL. We get back into What’s Trending and Logan Ryan signed with the Giants so potential veteran FA’s are starting to dwindle. See omnystudio.com/policies/listener for privacy information.
