Blueprint Denver


City and County of Denver




Denver, CO


Land Use Planning

Project Status 


The Project 

Blueprint Denver is a Citywide land use and transportation plan that will shape growth and development over a 20-year horizon through complete neighborhoods and transportation networks and a measured approach to new growth.  For the first time, the City is considering land use planning through the lens of social equity, with an overarching goal of an ‘equitable, affordable and inclusive’ city.

Our Role 

While at the City of Denver,  Gretchen was a member of the Blueprint Denver City staff team representing public health and equity considerations in the plan.  She successfully advocated for the use of the Denver Neighborhood Equity Index to measure differences in neighborhood conditions and resident health that can be changed by more equitable public and private investment.  The Equity Index will be continuously measured as Blueprint is implemented
