September 7, 2014

Every city has publications that are all about that place. One of Denver’s online sites that helps the community members and visitors to the Mile High City be aware and take part in local activities, meetings and news is DenverUrbanism.

“DenverUrbanism provides news, ideas, and commentary about urbanism in Denver and advocates a progressive pro-urban agenda for the Mile High City.”


DenverUrbanism was launched in 2010 and is all about city life in Denver. It is a spin off from 2004’s Denver Infill Blog and Website. DenverUrbanism is all about advocating progress and change in Denver.

Recent posts that can be found on the website are, “Denver Proposes Arterial BRT on East Colfax,” by Joel Noble published on September 3, 2014.
