Get Involved in Denver’s East Area Plan

9th & Colorado will comprise approximately two million square feet of new improvements on its 26 acres.
DENVER — The East Area Planning Initiative provided community members with the opportunity to attend five workshops over the last few weeks to learn about the East Central Area Plan and have a say in the future of the Hale, South Park Hill, Montclair and East Colfax neighborhoods.

The workshops offered attendees an opportunity to weigh in on key issues like affordability, how to get around, growth and quality of life in the planning area.

The East Planning Area includes the statistical neighborhoods adjacent to Colfax Avenue between Colorado Boulevard and Yosemite Street (Denver’s eastern city limit), including South Park Hill, Montclair, Hale, and East Colfax.

The area contains many great community assets, such as 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Two of the four neighborhoods, South Park Hill and East Colfax, have out of date plans, while Hale and Montclair have no plans at all.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 deadline for submitting comments on the online workshops is March 29. To learn more and participate online click here.
