West Area Plan (CPD)

The West Planning Area is made up of these six neighborhoods: Barnum, Barnum West, Sun Valley, Valverde, Villa Park and West Colfax. The area was selected to lead Phase II of the Neighborhood Planning Initiative because it has some of the oldest neighborhood plans and has experienced rapidly increasing housing costs. There are also several important city-led efforts underway in the area, including Elevate Denver pedestrian safety improvements for Federal Boulevard and West Colfax Avenue, ongoing construction of Paco Sanchez Park, the Stadium District Master Plan, Meow Wolf, and early phase construction on the Sun Valley Eco-District.

 

 

West Denver Safer Streets Project (DOTI)

Tennyson Street to 7th Avenue to Perry Street

The bikeway will continue south on Perry Street from 7th Ave to Bayaud St as a protected bike lane. West Denver Safe Streets will deliver bikeways on 7 West Denver corridors and will be installed through the DOTI Bicycle Program and the voter-approved Elevate Denver Bond Program.
