The West Denver Renaissance Collaborative (WDRC) is looking for community members who want to step up as leaders to guide West Denver through the Neighborhood Planning Initiative (NPI).
Get Involved in Planning for Your Community!
What is the Neighborhood Planning Initiative? In 2016, The City and County of Denver introduced the Neighborhood Planning Initiative in an effort to ensure that all areas of the city are covered by a custom, applicable area plan for neighborhoods to create and unfold a vision that is community-specific. To make the process more efficient, neighborhood groupings were established based on physical, historical, geographical, and developmental elements. The West planning area includes West Colfax, Villa Park, Sun Valley, Barnum & Barnum West, and Valverde, for which planning will begin in XXX of 2019. The NPI planning process is the opportunity for your community’s needs to be heard and to influence the physical and social landscape of the beloved West Denver. The bulk of the process includes a thorough community engagement element which will guide the direction of the plan, establish the focus areas and focus topics, and initiate transformative projects. The result is a plan with tangible steps of action to make West Denver more safe, enjoyable, and livable for residents, businesses, and visitors alike.
Why we need you WDRC is recruiting neighborhood leaders who can effectively generate interest in the NPI planning process.
