View Executive Summary

City Park Alliance (CPA) is a nonprofit organization serving as a community voice and advocate for the preservation and improvement of Denver’s City Park. This project focused on assisting CPA in its effort to identify projects in the City Park Master Plan (CPMP) that aligned with CPA’s Mission, Vision, and general community sentiment. By conducting surveys and interviews with stakeholders, the author assisted the CPA board in clarifying their priorities as a group, gathered up-to-date insights on park visitor preferences, renewed discussions with community organizations and institutional partners, and developed a mechanism to rank CPMP projects. A project prioritization matrix was the mechanism used to rank and filter down the list of 157 projects for consideration from the CPMP to six final projects recommended for CPA’s implementation.
