TC Tidbits: The Lowenstein CulturePlex, including Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue, Is In The News And Up For An Award

Live Work Play 2011

Live Work Play 2011 shines the spotlight on 10 great places, events and projects in livable communities throughout the Denver metro area over the next three months, culminating with the April 13 announcement of a People's Choice award winner. Mixed-use and mixed-income urban centers work in concert to make our region not only livable but memorable, as outlined in Metro Vision, the Denver metro area's shared vision of its future. Vibrant urban centers are clean, safe, compact, 24/7 environments. They are sustainable when people and businesses comingle, creating a sense of place that attracts people of all incomes and ages to stay while they live, work and play.

Metro Vision encourages communities to work together. Development districts and local governments use public-private partnerships to build places where businesses can grow jobs and people can enjoy healthy lifestyles in all stages of life. Arts and cultural events, along with access to locally grown food, enrich the value of these districts and help create places to be honored, celebrated and replicated.
