The Better Denver Bond Program is a comprehensive effort to invest in our infrastructure; and to enhance and construct city facilities that touch our lives. Over 319 projects are included in this $550M dollar effort. Denver’s citizens passed the 2007 ballot initiatives that established this program and its bond financing in order to make Denver better for everyone. Through this program, we are improving, preserving, renovating and building new roads, libraries, parks, city offices, an other facilities related to health and human services, public safety and culture.
Better Denver is enhancing our City’s quality of life and serving as a stimulus by pumping millions of dollars into the local economy and helping to put people to work. The City of Denver has committed to delivering these projects in record time and most of the projects are now complete, while some are still in the planning, design or construction phase. Several large projects are currently underway, including street improvement projects such as Federal Boulevard and South Broadway, and other large projects such as the Denver Museum of Nature and Science Education and Collections Storage Facility, and the new West Denver Branch Library.
