The Green Book
In 1995 the city formally adopted the SRF’s plan which was bound in recycled green cover stock, and soon earned the nickname “The Green Book.” The Green Book was alternately called visionary and unrealistic.
But the vision led to a much better reality. Today Stapleton’s 4,700 acres is home to 27,000 people living in homes and apartments for every income level, thousands of jobs and new businesses, some of the city’s highest performing schools, acclaimed parks and open space, innovative sustainability and health and wellness programs that connect new and old communities.
