Welcome to Council District 7. We are a richly diverse community of people – richly diverse in income, ethnicity, education, and occupation. We welcome you all, and are home to all the great things Denver has to offer.
Ours is a diverse and dynamic community, roughly bounded by Federal Blvd. on the west and University Blvd. on the east, 6th Ave. on the north and the City limits at Yale Ave. on the south. We have a diverse array of housing, from the fine old bungalows and leafy streets of West Washington Park and Platt Park, to the post-war cottages and big lots of Athmar Park and Ruby Hill with their fantastic views of downtown and the mountains, to the beautiful new multi-family projects springing up around Broadway and our light-rail stations.
We also boast some of Denver’s major parks and recreational assets, bordering Washington Park on the east, home to Ruby Hill Park and Overland Golf Course on the west and Harvard Gulch Park in the south, peppered with numerous neighborhood pocket parks throughout the district, and with the green ribbon of the Platt River running through the middle – a recreational highway leading to miles of trails and parks in all directions.

The Better Denver Bond Program is a comprehensive effort to invest in our infrastructure; and to enhance and construct city facilities that touch our lives. Over 319 projects are included in this $550M dollar effort. Denver’s citizens passed the 2007 ballot initiatives that established this program and its bond financing in order to make Denver better for everyone. Through this program, we are improving, preserving, renovating and building new roads, libraries, parks, city offices, an other facilities related to health and human services, public safety and culture.
