    Hancock’s budget proposal seems well thought-out on the whole. They are adding a lot of new personnel especially when you consider the add-on affect from previous years. This inevitably leads to higher operating costs going forward but heh, Denver is a growing city.

    For anybody who is interested in Denver’s Capital Improvement Program, check out the Elevate 2020 Denver pdf. There currently exists a backlog of $560 million of “priority” projects through 2020 with about half of that designated for transportation. This 6-year projected budget will be updated next year to run through 2022.
