Thanks to a recently announced increase in property values, city leaders believe that Denver could support a bond program of up to $900 million, which means that more public projects could soon be approved.

And while the city still needs to consider a few issues before deciding to actually spend $900 million on everything from roads to rec centers to parks, we want to know what you think that money should be used for.
