DENVER (CBS4)– Denver Mayor Michael Hancock has released a set of five plans to guide Denver’s growth and its impact on the community for the next 20 years and wants to know what you think.

The mayor says each plan is dedicated to preserving the history that makes the city unique, while still focusing on managing and directing growth.

“These plans work to preserve and protect our neighborhoods’ character, culture and community with tools to manage and direct growth, while enhancing what we love about our city for those of us who live here today and for the next 20 years.”

They five plans are:

  • Comprehensive Plan 2040 – An overall 20-year vision and goals

    Denver and the rest of Colorado will continue to have more houses, roads, and cars. We must make way for 1 million legal immigrants who join the country – every year. You can try to control it but it will continue. Ka ching.
