This month, we'll host Denver's Public Safety Director, Troy Riggs to present on the Denver Opportunity Index:
The Denver Opportunity Index is a philosophical shift in public safety service delivery. Using census track data, we are identifying areas throughout the city where residents’ opportunities to enhance their quality of life are less prevalent than other areas that have benefited from Denver’s recent prosperity. Our goal is to form partnerships with community stakeholders, non-profit organizations, members of the business community and city agencies to work with us to increase residents’ access to financial and healthcare resources.
We believe proactively focusing on these needs supports healthy communities by addressing root causes that lead to unhealthy behavior that necessitates public safety intervention. This requires a comprehensive approach and we are asking for your help to identify opportunities to provide everyone in Denver with an equitable path to prosperity and wellness.
We'll also hear an update from the Urban Land Conservancy and Medici on Walnut Street Lofts, an affordable housing project set to break ground at 38th and Walnut this month. There will be time for members of the community to ask questions to both presenters.
