303 ArtWay - Northeast Denver Art, Health and Heritage Trail

Urban Land Conservancy

Funding Received: 2015
Denver, CO
$250,000
Funding Period: 1 year and 5 months

The Northeast Park Hill neighborhood of Denver, CO will welcome a new commuter rail station in 2016 and must develop safe pedestrian and bike access to the new station for residents. The Urban Land Conservancy and several partner organizations will lead a community visioning charrette and preliminary design/feasibility study to create a plan for the initial phase of the 303 ArtWay; a new urban multi-use trail improving connectivity to the rail station, while celebrating the unique heritage and cultural identity of the area as Denver's sole remaining predominatly African-American community. The public visioning process will explore new social and physical connections across neighborhood boundaries, including a number of temporary and permanent public art installations to demonstrate the flavor and character of the new urban trail. Our efforts will culminate in a festival event that promotes the local arts, culture, and history of the evolving neighborhood.
