From horse-drawn carriages to 21st century jet liners, Denver has grown from an isolated mining town to an up-and-coming metropolis. We are a smart, cutting-edge city linked by walking trails, bike paths, highways, light rail and nonstop flights that create bridges — connections — that open up a world of opportunities for our children, neighbors and businesses.
-Mayor Michael B. Hancock, 2013 State of the City Address
Throughout the second year in office, Mayor Michael B. Hancock and his administration maintained their focus on supporting Denver’s kids, strengthening the city’s economy, and improving safety, customer service and sustainability. While intent on delivering a world-class city where everyone matters, the Hancock administration concentrated this past year on increasing Denver’s connectivity: better connecting neighbors to one another and to city services, and building bridges between Denver and the rest of the world.
