Thanks to a recently announced increase in property values, city leaders believe that Denver could support a bond program of up to $900 million, which means that more public projects could soon be approved.

And while the city still needs to consider a few issues before deciding to actually spend $900 million on everything from roads to rec centers to parks, we want to know what you think that money should be used for.

We asked our readers (who responded both seriously and sarcastically) on Facebook and Twitter, what projects would you prioritize if you had $900 million to improve Denver? Think something’s missing?
