Infrastructure

Infrastructure is everywhere, even if we don’t always notice. It’s the road we drive and the and sidewalk we travel. It’s the library and cultural facility that promote community and education, and the fire station and recreation center ensuring health and wellbeing.

These projects keep Denver safe, accessible, and connected. But infrastructure is more than just construction materials like cement or steel. It’s the workers pouring that cement and the businesses manufacturing that steel. It’s the food truck or local restaurant that depend on a lunchtime crowd at a construction site. It’s all the workers who benefit from steady paychecks or more customers so they can support their families. Infrastructure is the backbone of Denver’s economy.

During an economic downturn, we know bonds can deliver infrastructure to kick-start a slowed economy—we saw it work with the Great Recession. That’s why, in the November 2021 election, the city will ask residents to support a new $450 million bond program for infrastructure projects estimated to create 7,500 good-paying jobs.

More than 6,000 residents weighed in with their priorities for investment for the 2021 RISE Denver GO Bond through telephone townhalls, surveys and forums hosted here.

Your feedback was clear: a bond package that drives economic recovery by investing in our people. This bond package delivers that priority by creating thousands of jobs both today and into the future, preserving historic structures and creating new needed community assets in areas of our city underserved for generations, improving safety, serving our most vulnerable and increasing accessibility to city facilities for all residents.

The proposed GO bond package proposed GO bond package includes more than 80 distinct projects in all areas of Denver with a focus on equity and economic opportunity.

The list of bond projects were approved by Denver City Council on August 23, 2021. Residents will have the opportunity for vote for the package in the November 2021 election.
