Don't forget to share your thoughts on the topics that matter most to you
Members of the public in all Near Southeast neighborhoods have already started weighing in on how to create policies that will bring the community's vision to life. Share your feedback on neighborhood issues that are important you through a series of surveys now available online. Each survey takes about 20 minutes and offers another way to address priorities and potential trade-offs in four topic areas.

Those who share their input through the surveys or virtual workshops may opt in for a chance to win $20 gift cards to Target or local restaurants!

About the Near Southeast Area Plan
The Near Southeast Planning Area is made up of the neighborhoods of Washington Virginia Vale, Virginia Village, Indian Creek, Goldsmith and the area of University Hills north of Yale Avenue. It includes a variety of housing types, significant commercial corridors including Colorado Boulevard and Leetsdale Drive, and amenities like sections of the Cherry Creek Greenway and the Highline Canal. Several major redevelopment projects in the area have highlighted the need to work with the community to update outdated neighborhood plans or provide planning guidance in areas where no neighborhood plan exists. As part of the Neighborhood Planning Initiative, this project provides an opportunity to create a long-term vision for these neighborhoods that furthers citywide goals and priorities while addressing local neighborhood needs.
