TOD Programs & News

Current and Ongoing Projects

  • Transportation Demand Management: Denver’s Departments of Transportation & Infrastructure (DOTI) and Community Planning and Development (CPD) have adopted new rules that make developers partners in furthering Denver’s mobility goals by providing residents and employees with choices in how they move about the city. The regulations require new developments to implement measures known as Transportation Demand Management (TDM) strategies that expand people’s travel options and create attractive alternatives to driving.
  • Colfax and Federal Interchange Transformation: Learn about the Denver Department of Transportation of Infrastructure's project to reevaluate the current interchange configuration, with a focus on improving the transportation network for all users, stormwater requirements and possibilities and developing a design that maximizes network opportunities and future land use efficiency.

Recently Completed Plans and Studies


Denver Livability Partnership

In 2011, the City and County of Denver, along with its partners, received a joint U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Challenge Grant ($1.8 million) and U.S. Department of Transportation TIGER Grant ($1.2 million). Together, this grant was the foundation for the Denver Livability Partnership, which worked to expand permanent affordable housing, improve access to jobs and create better multi-modal connectivity along Denver’s transit corridors. 

Project information

In 2011, the City and County of Denver, along with its partners, received a joint U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Challenge Grant ($1.8 million) and U.S. Department of Transportation TIGER Grant ($1.2 million). Together, this grant was the foundation for the Denver Livability Partnership (DLP). The DLP worked to expand permanent affordable housing, improve access to jobs and create better multi-modal connectivity along Denver’s transit corridors. The federal funding allowed Denver to leverage partnerships and opportunities along the west light rail corridor to transform Denver’s west side into livable, transit-oriented neighborhoods. Through capacity-building and knowledge sharing, best practices will now be applied to other corridors in Denver, in the region and nationwide. Denver’s work, made possible by the Sustainable Communities Planning Grant, sets a national model for effective and comprehensive planning along a transit system.

Thanks to our partners, a robust public outreach process, and the support of city leaders, the Denver Livability Partnership completed its mission in 2014 and is happy to share its final reports and studies here. We look forward to building on the momentum we’ve recently built, to further expand permanent affordable housing, improve access to jobs and create better multi-modal connectivity along Denver’s transit corridors.
