We are all experiencing Denver’s growing pains, but how does this growth spurt compare to past booms?  Who lives in Denver today, and who will be here tomorrow? Can we predict the future- and plan accordingly?  Come hear from demographers, preservationists and planners about the outlook for Denver in the 21st century, what we will need from our built environment, and whether existing structures can adapt to meet of those needs.  Partners and panelists include the National Trust, Blueprint Denver and the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG).

Learning Objectives:

1.    What is the expected growth rate of the city of Denver, and what types of people are predicted to move into the area?

2.    How does the concept of re-urbanism help us utilize existing buildings to meet the demand of an influx of new residents?

3.    What preparations is the city making to prepare for growth?
