Economics and Land Use

DRCOG provides population and employment forecasts for neighborhoods and communities throughout the Denver region. Our land use model, UrbanSim, helps predict the pattern of growth and development by simulating the dynamic interaction of households, jobs, real estate markets and the regional transportation system within the constraints of local growth policies. This tool helps inform policy makers' decisions with relation to long-run patterns of growth and development, as well as infrastructure investments.
