Nation's 'Most Ambitious' Integrated Transit Solution

Denver plans to make financing available to developers of low- and moderate-income rental housing near transit stations.

"On Nov. 2, Denver metro voters approved an increase in sales tax to pay for FasTracks, which includes construction of six new rail lines over the next 12 years.

At least 51 of the 57 rapid-transit stations that will be built as part of FasTracks lend themselves to mixed-use development that should include affordable housing, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper said."
