Denver Moves: Transit Neighborhood Drop-in Workshops
The Denver Moves: Transit team will be out in community holding neighborhood drop-in workshops at 7 locations throughout Denver over the next 3 weeks.

Build Your Own Transit System Activity
We have also launched the Build Your Own Transit System online activity – this interactive activity gives the community the opportunity to select different options that make up their idea transit system. As they develop their system, they’ll see benefits (e.g., increased ridership, improved travel time, improved passenger experience, etc.) in real time. The responses to this activity and input gathered from the workshops will guide the Denver Moves: Transit plan and shape its recommendations.

How will Denver address growth as our population continues to increase? Come be part of a Blueprint Denver workshop to help identify the best path forward for managing Denver’s growth.
At our April 25 scenario planning workshop, you can join a “Blueprint growth strategy game” that plays out the implications of different patterns of growth. What are the tradeoffs for different population, employment and housing increases, and what are the tradeoffs associated with different growth strategies?
By creating priority transit corridors, exploring current and future growth patterns downtown and in mixed-use centers, and envisioning new mixed-use centers, you will have an opportunity to help shape how future growth may impact equity and affordability, mobility, and access to recreation and other daily needs.

It has been 10 years since the last GO bond issuance, the $550 million Better Denver Bond Program. The Better Denver Bond Program allowed Denver to improve, preserve and build roads, libraries, parks, city offices, and other facilities. You can see examples of these projects and read more about the last bond here.
Initial public meetings will begin next month. Information gathered from the public will help identify a package of proposals that will be submitted to City Council next summer for referral to the November 2017 ballot.
The foundation of investment considerations for the 2017 bond is based on Elevate 2020, the 2015-2020 Six Year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The CIP identifies Denver’s major city asset rehabilitation needs and new investment opportunities in capital infrastructure. Public and City Council input on the CIP and additional projects that are eligible are an important part of the process. Additional projects that the 2017 bond can pay for must be city-owned and -operated assets.
The yearlong process will include four phases of thoughtful input and assessment:
Community meetings hosted by the City and Denver City Council members to help gather input:
Task Forces tapped to examine and prioritize short and long-term capital facilities and infrastructure needs of the city and make project recommendations.
The recommended investments are presented to the public and additional engagement efforts are launched.
Proposed investment packages submitted to Denver City Council for referral to the November 2017 ballot.
Those interested in providing input can submit questions and comments at any time during the yearlong process by emailing 2017GOBond@denvergov.org or visiting any of Denver’s libraries or recreation centers between November 14 and December 21. General information about the 2017 GO Bond process and regular updates will be provided at www.denvergov.org/2017GObond.
