Message from the Mayor’s Office

Dear registered neighborhood organization and representatives –

The City and County of Denver has released a set of five plans to guide Denver’s growth and its impact on development, parks, mobility options and more over the next 20 years. These community-driven plans are the result of two years of listening and engaging through the Denveright process – with input from your neighborhood and thousands of residents citywide – and encapsulates the community’s vision and expectations for a more inclusive, connected and healthy city.

The plan drafts are available for your review and feedback now! They are:

·        Comprehensive Plan 2040 – An overall 20-year vision and goals 

·        Blueprint Denver – An integrated land use and transportation plan

·        Game Plan for a Healthy City – A parks and recreation plan

·        Denver Moves: Transit – A first-ever local transit plan

·        Denver Moves: Pedestrians and Trails – A sidewalks, street crossings and trails plan

I invite you and your RNO neighbors to learn more about the plans and take a 5-minute survey on key concepts at denvergov.org/denveright.

Next Steps


The plans are available for public review and comment through October 31. You can review any plan online and take a detailed survey to provide your feedback.

The city will host a Denveright community night on August 28, 2018, 5:30 p.m., at City Park Pavilion where anyone may learn more about the plans. City planners will also host office hours in several locations beginning in September.

After October 31, the draft plans will be revised based on input received. Then, in early 2019, Denver City Council will review plans that require council adoption.

These plans will help us preserve Denver’s character, culture and community. I thank you for your input thus far, and I look forward to seeing these plans to completion and seeing their great concepts implemented in the short-term and for years to come.
