Northeast Downtown Neighborhoods Plan

Plan adopted May 23, 2011

Northeast Downtown Light RailThis plan was undertaken to provide guidance for the future of the Northeast Downtown neighborhoods. The plan was intended to be used as a guide for future policy decisions, including redevelopment, infill, and infrastructure improvements. 

This approach included producing both a small area plan for the Northeast Downtown Neighborhoods study area and a station area plan for the existing light rail stops on Welton Street and additional stations at 33rd Avenue / Downing and 35th Avenue / Downing that are proposed as part of the FasTracks Central Corridor Extension

The study area for the Northeast Downtown Neighborhoods Plan is approximately 1.5 square miles in size. A majority of the study area is within the boundaries of the Five Points Neighborhood Statistical Area (NSA), and also includes the following neighborhoods:
  •  Arapahoe Square 
  • Ballpark
  • Curtis Park
  • San Rafael
  • Upper Larimer portion of the River North neighborhood
  • Enterprise Hill area near Benedict Fountain Park
  • Western most blocks of Cole and Whittier
