Congress Park Sustainable Neighborhood Kickoff Meeting – August 11th,


As you know, Congress Park has been selected to participate in Denver’s Sustainable Neighborhood Program! It’s time now to gather all interested neighbors for a neighborhood-wide kickoff meeting to hear about the program and discuss ideas for projects that we can implement this year and beyond. Please plan to attend.

To help advertise the kickoff meeting, the Sustainable Neighborhood program will be delivering a flyer, in English and Spanish, to every household in Congress Park (see flyer below). Of course, there’s nothing like a personal invitation to get neighbors to attend. Please consider talking to your neighbors about the program and inviting them to attend. Heck, invite your whole block or apartment building!!

New’s Letter: July 2016


Earlier this month, the sunflowers at the corner of 12th and Elizabeth were ordered to be cut down to comply with city regulations requiring clear sight lines and sidewalks and a maximum vegetation height of 30″. Councilman New worked with Neighborhood Inspection Services (NIS) to find a comprise allowing the majority of sunflowers to stay while opening up the sight lines for vehicle and pedestrian safety. Many thanks to Jose Viveros, NIS Executive Director, for his assistance and support.

Congress Park and Highland joins Sustainable Neighborhoods Program


The Sustainable Neighborhoods program helps residents strengthen their sustainability efforts by providing support and recognition from the City. Participating neighborhoods receive in-kind support in the form of outreach materials, printing, venue fees, food, and staff time to assist with outreach and project development.

Applications are solicited twice a year from registered neighborhood organizations; up to two are chosen each round. Applying neighborhoods are evaluated based on their ability to implement a variety of projects tied to the program’s five focus areas: Air, Land, Energy, Water and People.

Janes Walk In Congress Park

Jane Jacobs illustration-reduce

At the time Jane Jacobs was born in 1916, the Congress Park neighborhood was known as Capitol Heights. Already incorporated into Denver, our middle class suburb was firmly established yet still growing. Through photowalking, story sharing and a self-guided scavenger hunt, neighbors of all ages will develop a picture of how and why for the past 100 years Congress Park has been great place to live. Bring your passion for exploring and if you wish, a camera, sketchpad, neighborhood stories and trivia. On this walk expect to meet neighbors and learn about the heritage of our neighborhood in an informal setting.
