In this installment of Changing Denver Bit By Bit, we sit down with Courtland Hyser, Denver’s principal city planner, to talk about neighborhood plans.

Our Arapahoe Square episode specifically highlighted the lasting impact of two of these plans, so we thought it was fitting to further explore why neighborhood plans are so important in general, especially in light of Denver’s new Neighborhood Planning Initiative.

Our theme song is “Minnow” by Felix Fast4ward. You can listen to more of his music on Soundcloud.
