Neighborhood Planning Initiative (NPI)
Denver’s Neighborhood Planning Initiative is a new long-term commitment to ensure every corner of the city can enjoy the benefits of an area plan. In order to provide new and updated neighborhood area plans over the next 10 to 14 years, neighborhoods are being grouped together. As an example, six neighborhoods (Capitol Hill, North Capitol Hill, Cheesman Park, Congress Park, West City Park and City Park) along with Colfax Avenue will combine to form the East Central planning area. Residents, neighborhood groups, and community leaders will participate in this important planning effort.
