SARAH HUMBARGAR, 27

VICE PRESIDENT OF DEVELOPMENT SERVICES, DOWNTOWN PARTNERSHIP OF COLORADO SPRINGS

In her four years at Downtown Partnership, Humbargar has created and honed numerous new policies and processes that have resulted in demonstrable economic growth for downtown Colorado Springs. She launched a successful Holiday Pop Up Shop program, implemented the first State of Downtown Report and was project lead on a massive update to downtown's land-use master plan and plan of development.

During her tenure, downtown has reached a street-level vacancy rate of less than 2 percent, due in part to her efforts. Humbargar’s Experience Downtown Master Plan and Plan of Development engaged thousands of stakeholders and resulted in a highly praised plan approved by the Colorado Springs City Council in November 2016. Humbargar is involved in professional associations locally and statewide, including the Urban Land Institute, Downtown Colorado Inc. and the International Downtown Association. She will be serving as board chair in 2018 of Peak Startup, the lead nonprofit supporting entrepreneurial and economic growth in the Pikes Peak region.
