Following contract negotiations, Denver City Council’s Land Use, Transportation and Infrastructure Committee will consider the recommended team for a City Council vote. The City, along with the selected team, is anticipated to meet with the community to refine the greenway design in late 2017/early 2018. Pre-construction activities, such as utility relocations, are already underway, with the greenway expected to be completed at the end of 2019. Also included in the contract is funding to integrate a stormwater detention facility in the northeast corner of what is now operating as Park Hill Golf Course.
