Six resolution requests will also be brought to City Council later today for separate funding and assignment agreements with Denver Health and Hospital Authority and each of the cultural facility partners involved in the GO Bond. These agreements will allow these facilities to design and construct their bond projects, draw on bond funds quarterly, and participate in the city’s procurement, prevailing wage, art, and social ordinance requirements.
The city began the GO Bond process in 2016 by engaging the Denver community in a conversation about the improvements they want in their neighborhoods and throughout the city. With six public meetings, a map-based online tool, City Council engagement, and comment cards located at libraries and recreation centers across Denver, the city received more than 3,000 investment ideas. The stakeholder phase of the GO Bond process saw an additional 1,000+ emails from residents advocating for projects and each stakeholder committee meeting featured a public comment period.
