ULI: Green Roofs Coming, Ready or Not

 A year ago, Denver voters passed the Green Roof Initiative over the objections of some in the development community.  Since then city leaders and a Task Force have been busy making recommendations to implement the initiative, which affects the construction and replacement of all roofs of 25,000 square-feet+.  Come learn the best practices for implementation along with a national case study from the Javits Center in New York City. The program is hosted at Flight at TAXI, which features a state-of-the-art green roof. The panel will discuss green roof regulations, logistics, benefits, alternatives, and financing.

Denverright:  Game Plan for a Healthy City

Denver’s two-year Denveright outreach and planning effort, has obtained input from thousands of Denverites and resulted in plans for a more inclusive, connected and healthy city. The plans will guide the city’s growth, development, parks, mobility options and more over the next 20 years. The plan drafts are available for review, comment and a detailed survey through October 31.  City planners will also host office hours in several locations beginning in September.  The draft plans will be revised based on input received, and in early 2019, Denver City Council will review plans that require council adoption.  Draft plans include:

  • Comprehensive Plan 2040 – An overall 20-year vision and goals
  • Blueprint Denver – An integrated land use and transportation plan
  • Game Plan for a Healthy City – A parks and recreation plan
  • Denver Moves: Transit – A first-ever local transit plan
  • Denver Moves: Pedestrians & Trails – A sidewalks, street crossings and trails plan
