What is the Better Denver Bond Program? The Better Denver Bond Program is a comprehensive effort to invest in the City's infrastructure. Over 343 projects are included in this $550M dollar effort.

Through this program, it is improving, preserving, renovating and building new roads, libraries, parks, city offices, and other facilities related to health and human services, public safety and culture.

Other large projects such as the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Denver Crime Lab, Lowry Fire Station, Boettcher Concert Hall , Denver Botanic Gardens and the West Denver Branch Library are also a large focus of the Bond Program.
