The Project 

Denver’s Green Infrastructure Implementation Strategy defines Denver’s urban watershed and identifies projects that target pollutants and provide additional benefits such as increased open space, climate resiliency, improved air quality, urban heat island mitigation, better connectivity, and enhanced community livability.

Our Role 

While at the City of Denver, Gretchen advocated for prioritizing green infrastructure in neighborhoods lacking parks, tree canopy and green space, where extreme heat and poor air quality lead to higher rates of chronic disease among vulnerable residents.
