For the first in a series of community discussions produced by Confluence Denver, we invite readers to the Terrace Room at University of Colorado | Denver's Lawrence Street Center (1380 Lawrence St., 2nd Floor) on Thurs. April 10 from 5 to 8 p.m. The topic for the evening is "Place and the Built Environment in Denver: Why It Matters."

Panelists include Jesse Adkins III of Shears Adkins + Rockmore Architects, Trey Warren of Front Range Land and Development, and Tricia Mueller-Callandra of Larimer Associates. The moderator is Downtown Denver Partnership CEO Tami Door.

The discussion will focus on the dimensions of policy, design, dense development, creativity and entrepreneurship. The discussion will pose several questions:
  • What are Denver's values as city and a place?
  • How future development and placemaking might improve?
  • How might Denver create and execute a more intentional plan for the future?
Key themes and questions to be explored:
  • Connectivity as it relates to neighborhoods and nodes
  • Place as a foundation for entrepreneurship and talent
  • Creativity and design as a catalyst for change
  • Non-motorized life and access
  • Policy, its current limitations and potential
  • The role of anchor institutions
  • Gentrification and the importance of shared equity and inclusion
We invite all readers to listen, learn, discuss and collaborate with Denver's city-builders and placemakers.
