Most cities have a comprehensive plan that serves as the community’s broad vision for its future. Comprehensive Plan 2000 broadly guided Denver’s decisions about land use, mobility, parks, housing, economic growth, arts, culture and sustainability from 2000 to 2019. Denver has adopted a new comprehensive plan three times since 1977.
Other key citywide plans like Blueprint Denver (2002 land use and transportation plan) and the Game Plan for parks and recreation (2003) were adopted by Denver City Council as supplements to the Comprehensive Plan 2000. When the Comprehensive Plan was updated in 2019, Blueprint Denver, Game Plan, and separate plans for transit and pedestrians and trails were also updated at the same time to create a holistic city vision.
