Building Stronger Communities Workshop
Colorado's population is projected to grow by over 3 million by 2050. How communities plan for these changes is key to the long-term health and vitality of the state. This workshop will equip local government staff, partners, and leaders with information and strategies to proactively plan for community development in the wake of demographic changes to come.



The Community Development Office publishes an e-bulletin once a month highlighting upcoming events, important news and announcements, and other interesting links related to land use planning, economic development, and sustainable community development.
