In 2010, Allen Compton co-founded the Take Back the Boulevard initiative in Eagle Rock, which has focused on bringing Complete Street changes to Colorado Boulevard. 

Working with the community of Eagle Rock, Council District 14, and Civic Enterprise, SALT helped develop a Vison Plan for Colorado Boulevard that seeks to make Colorado Boulevard a safer and healthier place for everyone.
