The Mayor’s Office recently announced the 2017 GO bond stakeholder committees that will thoroughly examine the capital facilities and infrastructure needs of Denver and make project recommendations for bond funding.
The diverse, 60+ volunteer committee members will focus on five programmatic areas: Transportation and Mobility; Parks and Recreation; Arts and Culture; Safety Facilities; and City-owned Facilities. An Executive Committee will also be chaired by Roxane White, the President and CEO of the Nurse-Family Partnership and former Chief of Staff to Governor John Hickenlooper. Executive Committee co-chairs will be Jandel Allen-Davis M.D., the Vice President of Government and External Relations at Kaiser Permanente and J. J. Niemann, President of the Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation.
The stakeholder committees will consider over 3,000 ideas from the community combined with project ideas identified by City Council, city agencies and the projects listed in the city’s Six Year Capital Improvement Plan, called Elevate 2020. The city also received information about major capital needs from other partners, such as city-owned cultural facilities.
The stakeholder committees will hold meetings from mid-March to May. You can find more information at www.denvergov.org/2017gobond.
