  • Board of Directors
  • NOTICE is hereby given that the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) will hold a public hearing at 6:30 PM Wednesday, November 16, 2016, at DRCOG’s first floor meeting room, 1290 Broadway, in Denver.

    The public hearing is an opportunity to comment on the updated draft Metro Vision plan.  Metro Vision fulfills DRCOG’s duty to make and adopt a regional plan for the physical development of the region’s territory.  The plan remains advisory for local jurisdictions unless their planning commission chooses to adopt it as their official advisory plan. The Metro Vision plan does not replace the vision of any individual community; rather, it is a tool to promote regional cooperation on issues that extend beyond jurisdictional boundaries. The DRCOG Board adopted the first Metro Vision plan in 1997- Metro Vision 2020- and has continued the dialogue about how best to achieve the plan’s evolving vision ever since.  For more information on Metro Vision and the Metro Vision update, please visit the Metro Vision Progress Update webpage.
