featured partnership

CityCenter at the University of Colorado Denver, the Gates Family Foundation, Denver7, the Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation and the Denver Regional Council of Governments have partnered on the Imagine a Great Region initiative beginning in 2019. The initiative fosters cross-sector, regional conversations on growth while conducting research to inform such conversations. Led by faculty experts working with students, research will address topics such as mobility and transportation, housing access and affordability, natural resources, access to amenities and education. The multiyear initiative is bringing together forward-thinking community partners to share information and data about managing urban growth in deliberate, sustainable and equitable ways.
