Got an opinion on Denver’s new plan for affordable housing? Put it in front of the mayor at a public meeting Thursday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at North High School, 2960 Speer Blvd.

In the meantime, why not review the details of Denver’s proposal?

Mayor Michael Hancock wants to raise roughly $155 million in a decade by raising property taxes and fees on new development. That would replace the city’s Inclusionary Housing Ordinance, which has been in place since 2001.

It’s far from a done deal though. That’s why Hancock and City Councilmembers Robin Kniech and Albus Brooks will be on hand for Thursday’s meeting. There will also be “a presentation and discussion on Denver’s affordable housing policy proposals, resources and services.”
