"A suite of new plans for Denver charts out a two-decade vision that calls for rapidly expanding the transit and parks systems, filling in the pedestrian network and making smarter development policies," reports Jon Murray.

The Denveright plan includes five plans, including the first-ever citywide transit plan. Murray describes the Denveright program as the largest-ever citywide planning process in Denver. In total, Denveright includes plans for land use/transportationparkstransitpedestrian/trails, and the Comprehensive Plan.

Murray summarizes the goals of the plan for measures like park access, mode share, and housing development, while also discussing the challenges in funding and policy that could stand in the way of realizing that vision for the city.
