Idea Exchanges

Bringing People Together


Metro Vision offers ideas for local implementation: Local governments can use Metro Vision as they make decisions about land use, transportation planning and a range of related issues. Metro Vision also helps local governments coordinate their efforts with one another and other organizations.

Great Ideas from around the Region

Local governments and other partners are already at work to implement Metro Vision, advancing the region toward desired outcomes in ways that best fit local circumstances.

Communities can learn from each other’s ideas and experiences in dealing with common challenges or taking advantage of similar opportunities.

DRCOG offers a forum

Metro Vision Idea Exchanges allow land use and transportation planners, local government staff, the region’s residents and other stakeholders to share information and ideas of importance to the Denver region. These forums identify areas of local and regional success worth continuing, as well as emerging and ongoing challenges that require action. DRCOG hosts four to six Idea Exchanges each year. Topics range from transportation accessibility and housing market trends to water planning and public health policy.
