The Neighborhood Planning Initiative (NPI) is a new commitment to cover 100% of the city with area plans. This will be achieved over a period of approximately 10-14 years, or faster if resources allow (under Denver’s current planning approach of conducting one or two neighborhood plans at a time, this would take approximately 78 years to achieve). Under the banner of NPI, area planning will occur according to a consistent, streamlined process common to all plans. The multi-year work program will occur according to a predictable schedule laid out in advance. Once 100% coverage of the city is achieved, NPI will continue by cycling back through and updating the completed plans for each area.
