Community Improvements

For 50 years, CCCD has worked in partnership with cities, towns and neighborhoods across Colorado to provide preliminary design and planning services. Often, communities need this preliminary work to apply for funds or gain local support for a project. CCCD students in architecture, landscape architecture, planning and other disciplines, gain the valuable experience of working on real-world projects with community clients. Design work that benefits the public is a rewarding experience, particularly when it is funded and built.
