A Place for the FUTURE

In October of 2009, the City adopted the Envision Wheat Ridge Comprehensive Plan, providing a vision for the future of the community and guiding growth and change in the City.

New market-rate housing locations are being identified thorough out the City, and out-of-date housing stocks are being upgraded or sold. Commercial corridors are being evaluated for redevelopment, a new Bike/Pedestrian Master Plan is being implemented and plans for a centrally-located town center are under consideration.

The City continues to work toward implementation of a progressive mixed use development plan, allowing multiple uses of buildings and properties. Such innovative plans incorporate new patterns of development, encouraging alternative modes of transportation, promoting active lifestyles and creating a vibrant place for citizens to live, work and play.

Community-based organizations like Wheat Ridge 2020, LiveWell Wheat Ridge, and the local business community, partner with the City to improve and maintain a safe, sustainable community, providing unequaled services and contributing to an exceptional way of life.
As a local government we believe it is both a responsibility and a privilege to provide our citizens with the widest selection of public services the budget allows, and to make information about these services accessible in every way possible.
