Denver: The Right Way to Engage Residents in a Neighborhood Redesign

Denver’s rejuvenated South Lincoln neighborhood, being redeveloped in phases, will be walkable, transit-oriented, equitable, green, and perfectly located in close proximity to downtown jobs and services. It’s a terrific new model-in-the-making of how to revitalize older, distressed public housing sites in an ambitious yet sensitive way. But what really sets the South Lincoln project apart from others is the outstanding predevelopment public engagement and analysis undertaken by the Denver Housing Authority to ensure that the new community will deliver maximum benefits to existing and new residents and neighbors.  The vision of the Denver Housing Authority, Mithun (A&E firm), community members, and their partners has created a redevelopment plan with great sensitivity to community needs and concerns – in a great location, with excellent walkability and amenities, and impressive green features.
