New Metro Vision plan approved

On Wednesday, Jan. 18, the DRCOG Board of Directors voted unanimously to approve the latest version of Metro Vision, the region's plan for growth and development out to the year 2040. By speaking with one voice to adopt the plan, the Board gives life to an aspirational vision for the metro area. More than five years in the making, the current version of Metro Vision represents a significant update to the plan that has guided local decision making for more than 20 years. Read the plan.

Strategic Action Planning Group on Aging releases recommendations

As Coloradans age, they will affect every facet of daily life for millions of residents, including the state’s economy, state and local programs, and the everyday lives of countless families. Indeed, Colorado stands at the end of a demographic shift that will define it for generations.

Colorado is working to seize the opportunities this shift presents and to face challenges that may arise. We were proud to contribute to the Strategic Action Planning Group on Aging’s first set of recommendations to help Colorado prepare now through 2030.
