The Golden Triangle Neighborhood Plan covers the statistical neighborhood of the Golden Triangle. The Golden Triangle is a unique neighborhood located between the Cherry Creek greenway, the downtown business district and Capitol Hill. It’s rich in history and culture, encompassing Civic Center Park, the state capitol, the Denver City and County Building, the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Public Library and other civic assets. Its more than 2,100 residents are integral to the vibrancy and activity of this locale in the heart of the city. The plan will also look at the areas adjacent to the Golden Triangle and its connection to surrounding neighborhoods.

The last plan for the Golden Triangle neighborhood was adopted in 1998. The new plan will relate to current issues and opportunities and build upon recent planning efforts to create a comprehensive vision for this dynamic neighborhood.
