Reminder: Join our first virtual open house May 12 online or by phone
Don't forget to join the virtual open house tomorrow evening to hear from planners on the first draft of the East Area Plan. The event will provide an overview of the draft, key updates based on community feedback and a question-answer session.

Virtual Community Open House
6-7 p.m., Tuesday, May 12

If you sent an RSVP, you will receive details to join the meeting in a separate email. If you didn't, you can still participate! Meeting information is posted now on the plan webpage. If you would like to submit a question ahead of time, you can do so via our general feedback form .
Can’t make it? A recording of the virtual event and updated FAQs based on the questions we receive will be available after the fact. Read on for additional ways to comment and contact us.

When should comments be submitted?  In response to requests from residents and neighborhood organizations, we have extended the review period for the first draft of the plan to July 1, 2020. This will NOT be the final opportunity to weigh in and it is NOT the date that the plan will be voted on by City Council. Setting a date for comments on this first draft of the plan will allow us to review feedback and update the plan so the community may have a chance to review and respond to an updated draft. 
Read the plan and tell us what you think
> Watch an overview of the process and plan recommendations.
> Watch a tutorial on how to use online commenting system.

Would your community organization like to discuss the plan? Contact us and our planners can facilitate a virtual meeting with your members on our online platform.

Visit the plan website at for additional information, direct links to specific sections of the plan, an overview of the feedback we received on the draft recommendations or to contact the planning team if you want to discuss by phone or need assistance accessing the plan.
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 Two of the four neighborhoods, South Park Hill and East Colfax, have out of date plans, while Hale and Montclair have no plans at all.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.
