Denver wants your opinion on its future

9NEWS @ 5. 10/2/2016

DENVER - According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Denver has grown by more than 80,000 people since 2010.

The agency says that put the city in the top 50 fastest growing areas in the country, as of July 2015.

Denver City planners know if that trends continues, they'll have to come up with new ways to get people from point A to point B - and find new places for everyone to live.

"We're growing very fast, and now is a great time for you to share your input and voice your opinion on the future of your city," Andrea Burns said, a spokeswoman for the city's Denveright project. 

To share your ideas about how to use land, improve our parks, transportation and trails, the city will hold five open meetings on Oct. 4 and 5.

If you can't make the meetings, you can give your opinion online.

"Whether you've been in Denver your whole life or just a few months, we care about your opinion," Burns said.

A new vision may be coming just in time. Problems along the Cherry Creek Trail and 16th Street Mall have had some wondering if Denver has an image problem. Burns says the Denveright project will blend policy and planning.

"All of these things overlap," Burns said. "Affordable housing is part of this conversation, it all comes together, and that's why it's so important out get people involved."
