City Releases Updated Denveright Draft Plans
DENVER – The City and County of Denver recently released updated versions of the draft Denveright plans to guide development, parks, and mobility options for a more inclusive, connected and healthy city over the next 20 years.
More than 2,700 residents provided comments on the five plans during the review period. They expressed support in key areas including policies on equity, housing choices, quality-of-life infrastructure improvements and mobility choices. Feedback asking for more oversight resulted in revisions to ensure accountability when the plans are implemented.
“I applaud the people of Denver for making their voices heard in helping shape the future of our great city,” Mayor Michael B. Hancock said. “The feedback we’ve received makes these plans stronger and more inclusive, and better positions us to preserve and enhance all that we love about our city for everyone who calls Denver home.”
The three plans – Comprehensive Plan 2040, Blueprint Denver and Game Plan for a Healthy City – reflect feedback from the community, gathered in the months since they were publicly released in August 2018. This is the next step in a public review process that will culminate with a Denver City Council public hearing and vote in April. The two additional Denveright plans – Denver Moves: Transit and Denver Moves: Pedestrians and Trails – do not require council approval for adoption. Both are currently being finalized and will be published in the coming weeks.
