Looking to have your voice heard in Denver’s future development? Well, here’s your chance & the resources to get your voice straight to the decision makers. Denver announced new planning effort with focus on community input. On May 19, 2016, the city of Denver launched an updated planning effort that coordinates four different city plans into one initiative dubbed “Denveright.”
Denveright will bring together an update of:
- Blueprint Denver, a citywide land-use plan created in 2002.
- An updated Game Plan, a 2003 parks and recreation plan.
- Denver Moves: Transit, a new mobility plan for transit.
- Denver Moves: Pedestrians and Trails, a new mobility plan for sidewalks and trails.
The initiative will also focus on incorporating community input, according to a release from the city’s Department of Community Planning and Development.
“Great cities don’t happen by accident,” said Mayor Michael Hancock. “Many great planning efforts, undertaken with our diverse communities, have helped us create the Denver we’re all proud to call home. There is so much about life in Denver that we all love and value, and Denveright is an historic opportunity for everyone in our city to have a voice on the needs and priorities that will shape Denver’s future.”
The Denver community will have the opportunity to complete a series of surveys online on the Denveright website and can participate in community workshops and meetings. A community think tank will also be established and can be joined by anyone interested in taking a more active role in planning.
Bringing all four plans together will allow them to work together and will make the planning process more efficient, according to the release.
