Proposed 'Transit Oriented Denver' Strategic Plan Targets Station Area Investments
"Mayor Michael B. Hancock and Community Planning and Development Executive Director Brad Buchanan announced the release of a new plan that will kick-start transit oriented development (TOD) improvements in station areas across the city to help make Denver healthier, more livable and better connected. Transit Oriented Denver identifies what each Denver rail station needs in order to maximize its potential, and provides a set of action items for getting it there," according to a press release from Denver's Community Planning and Development department.
"The innovative new plan puts each station on its own track for success by identifying what is needed to improve its existing character, improve connectivity and enable transit-oriented development."
Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock is quoted in the press release: "This plan demonstrates that we’re thinking strategically about each of these sites, leveraging the character and assets of each unique neighborhood to better connect residents to the amenities they need to live vibrant lives."
