Help us recognize regional accomplishments and collaboration

Nominate a person, plan, program or project that deserves recognition for improving quality of life in the region. The Denver Regional Council of Governments welcomes nominations for the Metro Vision and John V. Christensen awards. 

Metro Vision Awards

We welcome nominations of plans, programs and projects in the areas of transportation and personal mobility, growth and development, community health and wellness, resiliency and promoting access to opportunity.

The judging panel will use the Metro Vision plan to evaluate nominations, recognizing those that contribute to the shared future envisioned by local governments, DRCOG and other partners:

  • An efficient and predictable development pattern that celebrates the unique histories and characteristics of our region's diverse communities
  • A connected multimodal transportation system that adapts to our growing and dynamic region
  • A safe and resilient natural and built environment that protects our natural resources and connects people to nature
  • Healthy, inclusive and livable communities that meet the needs of residents of all ages, incomes and abilities
