This article, by Susan Barnes-Gelt, is a great summary of New Urbanism in Denver and in some ways a great reply to PBS’ Blueprint America. Denver is, of course, hosting CNU‘s annual conference this year, but it also hosted it back in 1998. In the 11 years since then, Denver has switched from the Highlands Ranch sprawl model to focusing on redevelopment and urban landscapes. Stapleton, Belmar, Central Platte Valley and Lowry are all cites that the writer mentions as examples of this change. Denver has truly made some large strides, and we can expect it to be a leader in New Urbanism in the West for a long time.
