2014 APA Colorado Awards

Merit Award - Innovation/Creative Partnerships & Collaborations: Denver Livability Partnership

In 2010, as part of the pilot year for the Federal Partnership for Sustainable Communities, the City and County of Denver received a joint Housing and Urban Development Community Challenge Grant ($1.8 million) and Department of Transportation TIGER Grant ($1.2 Million) to expand permanent affordable housing, improve access to jobs and create better multi-modal connectivity along Denver’s transit corridors. This funding helped shape the Denver Livability Partnership, designed to emulate the Federal effort at the local level.

Merit Award – Sustainability and Environmental Planning: Decatur-Federal Station Area Plan

Capitalizing on the recently opened West Corridor public transit investment, the City of Denver’s Community Planning and Development Department and the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) joined together to take advantage of an unprecedented alliance of federal agencies to transform a neighborhood with the worst performance record in the city and create a more healthy, livable community at the Decatur-Federal light rail station in the Sun Valley neighborhood.

Honor Award – Community Engagement: Boulder Civic Area: The Year of Collaboration

5,000 people between the ages of 5 and 85 collectively helped shaped the plan for Boulder’s Civic Area – a central, iconic public space along Boulder Creek in the heart of downtown Boulder.
