The High Line Canal Vision Plan envisions a bold future for the Denver region’s extraordinary, 71-mile long irrigation channel turned recreational trail amenity. The vision is rooted in an interdisciplinary analysis of the site and an award-winning community engagement process. The High Line Canal Conservancy and its constituents are eager to translate the plan into action. The focus of the Framework Plan is to develop next steps for implementation, with greater development of the physical framework and opportunity areas.
Agency is leading development of the Framework Plan alongside local partners Livable Cities Studio. This phase of work entails developing designs for both individual opportunity sites and broad-reaching systems. Priorities include closing gaps in the trail system, adding amenities and activity nodes along the Canal, developing standard trail cross-sections, and piloting stormwater improvement projects. Collectively, these projects will improve the ecological health of the corridor, ensure equitable access, and enhance the quality of user experiences.
