Denver is so appealing to a native of Colorado because it offers so much in such a small area. Suburbia with it's large houses and even larger yards seem to shout "Leave ME Alone!" Not a good message as people who desire relationships and interaction. I like the thought of knowing my neighbors and walking to the local corner store for a loaf of bread or some Advil. Allowing my kids to play down the street knowing that someone has got their eye on them. Knowing that I'm being a little kinder to the environment by conserving resources and yet building community. I like that Urban planners are thinking the same way.
