Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the academy will again be held virtually on Zoom.  Over the past decade, Citizens’ Academy has inspired and prepared numerous alumni to serve as elected officials, and hundreds of participants have gone on to positions in public agencies or nonprofit organizations that shape Colorado’s future.  DRCOG is now accepting applications for the spring 2021 session.

This amply-illustrated book, second in a series, documents how defunct shopping malls, parking lots, and the past century’s other obsolete suburban development patterns are being retrofitted to address current urgent challenges they weren’t designed for: improving public health, increasing resilience in the face of climate change, leveraging social capital for equity, supporting an aging society, competing for jobs, and disrupting automobile dependence.


The Global Real Estate Project is an undertaking of the Franklin L. Burns School of Real Estate and Construction Management at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business, and directed by Dr. Mark Lee Levine, Professor and Endowed Chair. Our goal is to provide students, investors, and the general public with the tools they need including free tax and real estate tips to research real estate opportunities both domestic and abroad.
