Regional Planning

DRCOG’s Regional Planning and Development division is a group of service-oriented teams, providing high-quality information, tools and resources to internal and external partners and customers. The division is responsible for the coordination of long-range planning, including performance monitoring and reporting, for the Denver region. The key product of our long-range planning work is the Metro Vision plan, which guides DRCOG’s work and establishes a shared aspirational vision with our many partners.

We produce a wide array of data, information, maps and models in support of local and regional planning efforts. Data and maps, addressing topics from transportation and land use to demographics and employment, are available for download from our Regional Data Catalog

We also provide socioeconomic data for forecasting the future of the Denver region and travel models that help local communities, cities and counties develop strategies for growth and development. This data is used in all areas of focus at DRCOG to predict the needs of the Denver region and plan for the future.
