Several community service projects undertaken by the college's centers and classes promote health and well-being. The Learning Landscapes Initiative that redeveloped all of Denver Public Schools' schoolyards from 1998-2013 is a stellar example. Over the years CCCD worked with many towns on recreation center and trail development plans. In summer 2012 landscape architecture students designed and installed a small-scale landscape perennials in the Auraria Library South Courtyard, which has enhanced the space for staff and patrons. Some urban and regional planning students' capstone projects address bicycle and pedestrian planning. Landscape architecture studios have focused on issues of food production, food distribution and food justice. The Lasley Park project by a landscape architecture studio in 2016 as part of Hometown Colorado has played a significant role in honing the master plan for improvements there. The College of Architecture and Planning has worked with communities and neighborhoods in ways that contribute to healthier living conditions and enhanced well-being for residents.
