In 2017, Denver's city planners gathered input from residents, business owners and other community stakeholders — both out in the community and online — to help draft a vision for the East Central Area neighborhoods.
Planners attended community events and meetings to talk about the planning process and hear directly from community members. Additionally, our online surveys drew thousands of respondents across the plan area who shared what they like and dislike and their ideas for improving where they live, work and play.
In 2018, all the comments and ideas that community members have provided will start to take shape into a shared community vision for each planning area. Check back on this page for updates and more opportunites to get involved.
Council members Wayne New and Albus Brooks have convened the Steering Committee for the East Central Area Plan. All meetings for the committee will be open to the public.

The East Central Planning Area includes the statistical neighborhoods adjacent to Colfax Avenue between Broadway and Colorado Boulevard, including Capitol Hill, North Capitol Hill, Cheesman Park, Congress Park, City Park and City Park West. The area contains a rich mix of amenities, jobs, and housing options, and remains one of the most dynamic places in the city. The area’s outdated plans coupled with additional changes on the horizon—including plans to improve City Park, add Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Colfax Avenue, and new amenities such as Civic Center Transit Station and the Carla Madison Recreation Center—make East Central a top priority for engaging the community in a new plan.
