We are back!
Thank you to all those who participated in our 2015/2016 re:Denver forum series. We have begun our fall 2016 portion of the re:Denver series with more great conversations about the past, present and future of Denver's built environment.
Denver is a forum series dedicated to issues surrounding Denver's built environment, its past, present, and future. The forums are free and open to the public and are held every other month on the third Tuesday. In 2017 forums will be held in January, March, May, July, September, and November. Locations vary.
The forums are intended to help the community understand the forces impacting our built environment, including development pressure, design standards, the real estate market, existing neighborhood character and more. A new season of forums has begun, keep an eye on Historic Denver's Facebook page for updates.
Select past forums are available on Historic Denver's YouTube Channel
Next forum: March 14th Is it Historic?
Re:Denver is supported by Sopra Communities and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Thank you, Sponsors!
