You asked & we listened: Comment period for first draft plan to remain open until April 12
We heard you! The community asked for more time to learn about the East Central Area Plan, and we are giving you more time! We have re-opened the comment period on the first draft and will take feedback until April 12. 

If you have not had a chance to review the draft, share your thoughts or ask questions, use the links below to do just that.

If you have already shared your feedback on the draft, we encourage you to share the links with neighbors or friends who have not and encourage them to participate before April 12.

Additional resources on the plan webpage:

  • Links to specific sections in the draft document including recommendations on land use, the local economy, mobility, quality of life, area neighborhoods and the Colfax corridor.

  • List of locations where you can review a print copy of the plan.

About the East Central Area Plan
The East Central Planning Area neighborhoods—Capitol Hill, North Capitol Hill, Cheesman Park, Congress Park, City Park and City Park West—contain a rich mix of amenities, jobs, and housing options, and remain among the most dynamic places in the city. The area’s outdated plans coupled with additional changes on the horizon—including plans to improve City Park, add Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Colfax Avenue, and new amenities such as Civic Center Transit Station and the Carla Madison Recreation Center—make East Central a top priority for engaging the community in a new plan.

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.
