Denver Campaign Asks You to Help Plan the City's Growth for the Next 20 Years
At the Performing Arts Complex on Thursday, Mayor Michael Hancock announced a new city campaign called “Denveright” that aims to incorporate Denver citizens’ feedback in revising four master city plans – Blueprint Denver; a Parks and Recreation “Game Plan”; Denver Moves: Transit; and Denver Moves: Pedestrians and trails.
Together, the four documents will help guide Denver’s growth and development over the next twenty years and address areas such as land use, zoning, public parks, transportation, public transit and trails.

“My vision for #Denveright is ____________________”
This campaign announcement had been anticipated for some time; during Westword’s reporting for the March cover story “Zoned Out,” about the city’s plans to revise the land use document called Blueprint Denver (as well as some of the challenges that revision will entail), the City’s Community Planning and Development Department’s spokeswoman, Andrea Burns, had hinted that a social-media campaign was in the works.
Below you can watch the video that the city unveiled during Thursday’s announcement of that campaign. The event in the Arts Complex also included a panel discussion by city planners and consultants from other U.S. cities, moderated by Greg Moore, who recently stepped down as editor of the Denver Post.
