East Denver Planning

What future do you want for East Denver?

City planners have been working steadily for the last few months to set the stage for the launch of a neighborhood planning process in the East Planning Area, which includes the neighborhoods on either side of Colfax Avenue between Colorado Boulevard and Yosemite Street. 

To kick off the process, the online survey linked below seeks input from locals on likes, dislikes, what's missing, and big ideas for the neighborhoods.

More about the East Area Plan

The East Planning Area neighborhoods—South Park Hill, Montclair, Hale, and East Colfax—contain many great community assets, including historic parkways, the Rose Medical Center, Johnson and Wales University, and many unique, locally-owned businesses. The area is experiencing some significant changes, such as the 9th and Colorado mixed use project, as well as plans to add Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Colfax Avenue. Two of the four neighborhoods, South Park Hill and East Colfax, have out of date plans, while Hale and Montclair have no plans at all.

The Neighborhood Planning Initiative provides a great opportunity to establish the community’s vision for maintaining and enhancing the quality of life in these neighborhoods for decades to come.  The above survey is the first of several activities, both online and in person, that will take place in the coming months.
