Denver wants to know what's your favorite place

Denver's Department of Community Planning and Development is launching a citywide conversation about placemaking and city building by asking residents what their favorite places in the city are and why.

All residents are invited to participate in the dialogue by answering the question on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #favoriteplacedenver, along with text, photos or videos.

The social media campaign will kickstart a Denver love fest to foster civic pride and learn from each other how the city can be improved.

"Denverites have such great pride in their city, from our vibrant core to our quiet neighborhoods and everything in between," Mayor Michael Hancock says. "This is a way to engage in a conversation about what we love and what we'd love to see more of."

Brad Buchanan, Denver's Director of Community Planning and Development, saw a need to engage residents in an open, citywide dialogue about what's important to them when it comes to building a city.

"Cities are not just a collection of places," Buchanan says. "Cities are a collection of experiences. We want to know what matters to Denverites so that they can help us make the places that make the experiences that make a city."

The campaign will run through the end of September, with a few participants randomly selected to win tickets to a Red Rocks concert.
