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.
At this early stage, the city’s hope for the Denveright campaign is that residents will utilize a newly launched website, Twitter account and Instagram account to tell the city:
“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.
