Council District 8
District 8, encompassing 16 neighborhoods, has boundaries that span from the Central Business District to City Park, from the Hospital District to Colfax and from Park Hill to Five Points. It is truly a place where you can live, work and play; and it is one of the most culturally, economically and generationally diverse districts you’ll experience in the city.
The district borders Colfax to the South, 40th/I-70 to the North, Holly to the East and Speer to the West. We have over 50,000 constituents in our district and a number of pets we are unable to count!
District 8 is also the economic engine for the city, serving as the logistical heartbeat for business recruitment and retention and for extensive public investment, which is the reason our grand city recovered from the economic downturn faster than most other cities in the US. With a rebranded and reopened Union Station, an overhauled Theater District and a down-town that continues to evolve, Denver’s City Center has become a national model for downtown and regional development. Our office, housed in the newly named Elbra M. Wedgeworth Municipal Building, is located in Five Points and is manned by an outstanding and dedicated staff.
The District 8 team consists of myself, Amanda Schoultz and Shelby Wieman. We are here to serve you and welcome your input on how to grow our communities, district and city. Crime Rates
