NEW! View the Golden Triangle neighborhood plan DRAFT (PDF), posted June 2014

The Golden Triangle Neighborhood Plan covers the statistical neighborhood of Civic Center, last planned in 1998. The Golden Triangle is unique -- 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 areas adjacent to the Golden Triangle and its connection to surrounding neighborhoods.

Upcoming Meetings

No meetings scheduled. Public input on the draft plan will be taken through July 16, and planners will take a final version of the plan to the Denver Planning Board and Denver City Council this fall. Check back at this page for the Planning Board and City Council public hearing dates.
