In the Spring of 2016, various students from multiple disciplines at the University of Colorado Denver, came together to research and map the current and future redevelopment happening in North/East Denver. The city's mayor has imagined a corridor of opportunity that consists of six main development projects aimed at improving the image of Denver. These projects however, have given rise to serious questions regrading social and environmental justice for the communities residing at the intersection of these projects. These students have developed an informational resource aimed at shedding light on the adverse impacts these projects are having and will have on the primarily Hispanic and low income populations of greater North/East Denver. This informational resource took the form of a website that showcased a series of maps visualizing development project areas and the demographics of the local population and various impacts of those development projects.
