As city planners along with the East Central Area Steering Committee continue to mine the data collected during the 2017 plan kick-off survey, the planning team has been meeting with neighborhood groups and organizations throughout the planning area to continue to gather community input and offer an update on the planning process.
If you would like a presentation at your group's next meeting, contact us to make arrangements.
Throughout 2018, city planners have been working with the steering committee analyzing survey data, including the more than 10,000 comments received for both the East Central and East Area Plans. All that input is serving as the basis for draft vision statements for the East Central Area neighborhoods, as well as focus topics and geographic areas, guiding principles and map-based recommendations.
The community will have more opportunities to weigh in and give feedback on all of this in the coming months. Check back for more information as well as summary survey data, which will be posted here soon.
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.
6-8 p.m., 2nd Thursday of the month

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 The area’s outdated plans coupled with additional changes on the horizon—including plans to improve City Park, add Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) along Colfax Avenue, and new amenities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.
