To assist with this planning effort, DPR has hired Design Workshop which has a long track record of working with both the City and County of Denver and other local and regional municipalities on strategic planning.
DPR is committed to a collaborative planning process with multiple opportunities for public engagement. Outreach efforts will include online engagement tools such as surveys and virtual meetings and presentations. Until guidelines allow in-person contact and exposure all public input opportunities will be virtual.
The acquisition planning process begins with extensive research and analysis on the historic development of Denver’s park system and best practices and case studies as well as mapping related to the acquisition focus areas. The Strategic Acquisition Plan’s vision, goals and outcomes will be developed by community input, Technical Focus Area Groups, a Technical Partners Group and the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board.
The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board (PRAB) heard public comments on the proposed Strategic Acquisition Plan on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 at their regular meeting.
