Hey there. Denver council made another little step in its discussion about affordable housing last night: We’re seeing pretty explicit support for the city to come up with another $150 million for housing.

That philosophy is coming to an end as Denver updates its long-range plans. Draft documents outline a vision in which every neighborhood is constantly evolving in one of four different ways.

“The point is that change doesn’t necessarily mean private development. Change can mean a lot of different things,” said planning spokeswoman Andrea Burns. “We’re looking at ways to suss out the kind of change that a neighborhood needs in all different ways — not just whether it promotes or inhibits development.”
Construction could start as soon as June 2019 and finish three years later, the plan states.
