The Downtown Denver Partnership Leadership Program (DDPLP) is an amazing program filled with an incredibly talented group of leaders. This year’s class project was called Putting Our Best Foot Forward and our own Carissa McCabe was part of this cool effort. I have posted a link below to YouTube that shows the video that was produced by the members of her class to support the live presentation they gave a few weeks ago.
For those of you who don’t know very much about this program, the idea is to immerse the class in the Denver Area Plan (Denver’s 20-year plan for improving our downtown). The group (all had to apply and were selected to attend the DDPLP) had to dig into research to determine how they could make Denver more pedestrian friendly.
Carissa taught the rest of us GroundFloor Media pedestrian novices that Denver is ranked No. 4 in the country for walkability.
GroundFloor Media wasn’t the only firm represented in this class. There were more than 70 other downtown leaders from companies including Molson/Coors, Corona Research, Vectra Bank, the Colorado Rockies, the Office of Economic Development, The Kenney Group and many, many others.
