New office hours date added: Share your feedback directly with city planners!
Haven't had a chance yet to provide feedback or ask questions about potential recommendations for the East Area Plan? Come talk to city planners at drop-in office hours. Dozens of residents attended our session on July 25, and with another date added to the schedule, there are still two sessions over the next couple of weeks.

East Area Plan Drop-in Office Hours
5-8 p.m., Thursday, August 1
Friendship Baptist Church
880 Fairfax Street, Denver

NEW DATE: 5-8 p.m., Tuesday, August 6
East Montclair Community Center
6740 E. Colfax Ave., Denver

We encourage you to share this email with any neighbors or friends who are not familiar with the plan and would like to learn more and weigh in. Community input will be used to update the recommendations and maps, with new drafts coming later this summer. The recommendations cover four key areas:

> Economy and Housing
> Mobility
> Land Use and Urban Design
> Quality of Life
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 Two of the four neighborhoods, South Park Hill and East Colfax, have out of date plans, while Hale and Montclair have no plans at all.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.
