Activity Summary

The City and County of Denver in partnership with the Denver Housing Authority is sponsoring a strategic transit-oriented development planning process for the Decatur-Federal station area. The federal agencies of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Department of Transportation (DOT) are jointly funding this planning effort through 2010 HUD Community Challenge and DOT TIGER II Planning grants. 

The Plan process will focus on the one-half mile radius around the Decatur-Federal LRT Station located on RTD’s West Corridor in Denver’s Sun Valley neighborhood. This neighborhood in particular must overcome numerous barriers to fully take advantage of the West Corridor public transit investment. The Station Area Plan and GDP will serve to provide valuable insight for stakeholders, the public and public agencies, and to attract future investment for underutilized land and a clear Master Plan for DHA’s Sun Valley Homes property.  With increased understanding of the infrastructure, risks, costs and opportunities associated with this station area, the plan will also serve to create a development vision for the planning area.
