Back in July 2013, Ian Harwick and I launched Denver Urbanists MeetUps to give people who care about cities an informal venue to gather, chat about urban issues, build relationships, and work together to help Denver grow and thrive. We are now up to MeetUp #17 and they continue to be a source of gratification and inspiration for me.

Each meetup consists of a mix of regulars—people who I’ve come to know from previous meetups and enjoy reengaging with—and first-timers who bring new and interesting perspectives to the conversation. Of course, the combination of regulars and first-timers is different every time, which results in each meetup feeling comfortably familiar but unique at the same time. Also, everyone is amazingly friendly and I leave each meetup feeling grateful that I live in a city that has such a culture of openness. A big THANK YOU to everyone who has attended a meetup in the past!


A pleasant urban scene for your enjoyment. Thank you, Ryan Dravitz—you’re awesome!

Here are the details for our upcoming meetup:
