Cartography, Part III - Denver
Cities are dynamic and what drives their change is the people who live, work and play in them. Whether native-born, recently arrived or decades-long residents, everyone has a unique perspective on what their city means to them. In this third part of a series on cities in which Page offices are located, some of our employees explain what they love about their neighborhood, which in turn influences their work.

Favorite neighborhood: Highlands
Really, the main reason I love this place is that I live here. And the main reason I live here is I love the restaurants in this neighborhood. It's also at a really great spot within Denver as a whole. It's within close biking distance of everything downtown, and near parks and the river. There's easy access to I-70 and the mountains, as well as I-25. It's on top of the hill, so there are some great views from here to downtown.
Although there are many new buildings popping up, there is a historically protected portion of the neighborhood, and you can find buildings that remain and are on the National Historic Register, as well as many large historic houses.

Favorite neighborhood: Berkeley
Berkeley truly embraces live / work / walk / play. The apartments, houses and lofts are all unique. Many residents work at places in the area that ooze creativity. It’s a walkable neighborhood with access to beautiful parks and boutique galleries, bars, restaurants and retail shops. Berkeley has become a destination for young professionals offering lots of character. 38th and Tennyson are both great examples / highlights of this neighborhood.

Number of years in Colorado: I've lived in Broomfield for 25 years and counting.
Favorite Neighborhood: Miramonte Farms
Miramonte Farms is primarily my favorite neighborhood because of its green spaces and easy walkability to services, parks, and schools. Almost anywhere I need to go is within a 15 minute walk from my house, except for work. My neighbors are friendly and my neighborhood is active and safe with neighborhood watch programs on almost every street in my subdivision.
From the time I moved there to now, the trees have all matured and my neighbors keep their property well-maintained. My family initially moved there because we wanted our kids to go to Boulder Valley School District and be able to walk to school from elementary through high school. We love the City of Broomfield for its parks, services, and amenities and proximity to major freeways for easy access to the rest of the surrounding metro area of Denver.
The resale value of our house has doubled since we moved there but I am in no hurry to move anywhere else. Taxes are reasonable and city services, like snow removal and trash are excellent. I believe Broomfield is the best place to live in this part of the metro area.
