2021 RISE Denver GO Bond

During an economic downturn, we know General Obligation bonds can deliver infrastructure projects to create jobs and kick-start a slowed economy—we saw it work with the Great Recession and previous economic downturns dating back to at least the late 1980's.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, economies across the globe suffered some of the most severe economic impacts felt since the 1930's. Denver's recovery is just getting underway, and the City is further stimulating our recovery with a $260 million GO Bond for infrastructure projects estimated to create 4,200 good-paying jobs and $550 million in economic output for businesses all across Metro Denver.
