Topic-specific online surveys available now
Big thanks to everyone who attended the first of two virtual workshops and helped kick off the next phase of community engagement for the Near Southeast Area Plan.

If you couldn't attend--or even if you did--you can offer feedback on neighborhood topics that are important you through a series of online surveys now available. Each survey takes about 20 minutes and offers another way to share your thoughts on 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!
Don't forget: Parks and mobility virtual community workshop coming next week
The second virtual workshop for community members to discuss potential recommendations and alternatives for the plan takes place Thursday, March 10. This one will focus on mobility and parks. Register today, if you haven't already!
Keep an eye on your inbox for additional information coming in the next few weeks about in-person opportunities to weigh in on the plan, and join your neighbors to help create policies that will help meet the needs of your community.

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 Several major redevelopment projects in the area have highlighted the need to work with the community to update outdated neighborhood plans or provide planning guidance in areas where no neighborhood plan exists.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.
