Holly Brown Nichols / Of Counsel
Holly Nichols joined CRL Associates in 1998 and has extensive experience in project management, policy development and implementation, coalition building and communication. She has helped clients in everything from real estate and development to running an auto race in the streets of Downtown Denver. She has an undefeated record implementing successful strategies for a variety of projects including the amendment of an urban renewal district for a convention headquarters hotel; the rezoning of Clayton Lane in Cherry Creek North; rezoning the Canyons project in Douglas County which included over 5,000 acres of agriculturally zoned land; and siting a rail-fed aggregates facility along the US-85 Corridor near Sedalia.
Holly also has held various leadership roles on successful political and community outreach campaigns throughout the region including managing grassroots efforts on the Tourism Pays campaign to expand the Colorado Convention Center; generating regional support for moving through freight rail traffic off the Front Range of Colorado; and, helping pass hundreds of millions in infrastructure improvements to build a new soccer stadium in Commerce City. In fact, in 2001, her outreach efforts on behalf of a client and in cooperation with the South Metro Chamber of Commerce, ultimately led to the formation of the City of Centennial, Colorado.
