Denver is playing host to the 2010 National League of Cities (NLC) Conference this week at the Colorado Convention Center. The 4-day conference (Wednesday-Saturday) will include more than 4,000 participants – about 2,000 of which are elected and appointed officials and city staff. The conference will feature daily keynote speakers covering a wide variety of topics of interest to city officials and policy makers. Click here for more information on the conference.
RTD will be sponsoring a mobile workshop focusing on its rail system and the FasTracks project. The group will visit the future Wadsworth Station on the West Corridor, the Englewood Station and CityCenter Englewood, and Denver Union Station to hear about past, present, and future rail expansion, redevelopment, and TOD projects that are occurring near RTD stations. This is a great opportunity to showcase projects and initiatives in Denver that can be replicated around the country and to bring to the forefront the progress that RTD is making on one of the most ambitious transit expansion programs currently underway in the country.
On a side note, I share everyone’s enthusiasm about DenverUrbanism – looking forward to exploring some of the topics I know this blog will cover.
