Balanced Growth that Respects our Neighborhoods
“Even if you live in a big city, everybody lives in a small town. We identify ourselves by our neighborhoods.”
- Karin Slaughter
Cities are living places that change and grow over time, and our neighborhoods also transition. There are two ways that the growth can happen - to us, or for us as citizens of Denver. It’s time for our city to stop reacting to growth and start directing it in a way that values our character-filled neighborhoods, our green spaces and our unique Denver assets. To do so requires leadership, thoughtful planning, and the will to put the quality of life and economic sustainability of our people first.
