Blueprint Denver 2002
Denver has changed considerably since 2002, and Blueprint has reached the end of its shelf life. It’s time to plan for the next 20 years — and address the city’s ongoing population growth and transit expansion, and as well as sustainability and resilience in the face of climate change.
Denver’s rapid growth underscores the need for an updated land use and transportation plan to ensure we’re directing growth to the right places while protecting stable neighborhoods.
