The GR Forward master plan - developed through one of the most inclusive public engagement efforts in the city's history - clearly defines the community's priorities for the next generation of growth in Downtown. That means we're well positioned to act with confidence on the work of translating the community's vision into reality. 

What's more, organizations and cities capable of quickly advancing good ideas are figuratively one step ahead of the competition. DGRI is currently working with a wide array of community partners to advance numerous projects, programs and initiatives called for in GR Forward
