Neighborhood delegates were charged with conceptualizing and executing community engagement efforts designed to foster stronger community.
During the 2018 season delegates engaged their communities in a variety of ways including social events to support area businesses, as well as highlighting the importance of pedestrian safety along a notoriously unsafe traffic corridor.
Feedback from the community has been very supportive evidenced by the attendance at each of our social events held at local area businesses.
Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods also partnered with WalkDenver during a traffic calming demonstration along 13th ave. which attracted a variety of local media including Channel 7, StreetsBlog and others. Denver Police participated in the community engagement effort and handed out swag to residents who showed up to witness what was happening in their neighborhood.
Overwhelming positive feedback was received during the event and through social media channels.
