Pedestrian Environment

Creating an inviting pedestrian environment to stimulate economic activity is a primary goal of the Downtown Denver Business Improvement District (BID). This is why the BID invests in trees, flower planters, streetscape enhancements, banners and wayfinder signs throughout the District, as well as in activities and events on the 16th Street Mall.

Developing an Inviting Urban Tree Canopy
