Denver Environmental Health is soliciting applications from residents and neighborhood organizations to join Denver’s Sustainable Neighborhoods Program.
Up to two neighborhoods will be selected for the program, and will join the West Colfax, North City Park, Chaffee Park-Regis, Barnum, Villa Park, Green Valley Ranch, Baker, East Montclair/East Colfax, Congress Park, and Highland neighborhoods. The program gives residents the opportunity to become active partners in making Denver a more vibrant and sustainable community.
Neighborhoods receive in-kind support from the City, in the form of printing, venue and catering fees, and staff time to assist with outreach and project development.
Participating Sustainable Neighborhoods earn credits for achieving sustainability goals by completing projects such as: hosting workshops at the local community garden, making energy efficiency upgrades at home, cleaning up alleyways and parks, and encouraging neighbors to sign up for the City’s free recycling service. Depending on the number of credits earned in a given year, neighborhoods receive designation as a “Participating Sustainable Neighborhood” or as an “Outstanding Sustainable Neighborhood.”
"This program provides a platform for residents to become leaders in their community,” says Sustainable Neighborhoods Program Coordinator Taylor Moellers. “Anyone can propose a project, and no project is too small. Whether it’s a Rain Barrel Workshop or a Neighborhood-wide Energy Efficiency Challenge – the Sustainable Neighborhoods staff is here to help.”
To learn more about the program and apply, visit www.SustainableNeighborhoodNetwork.org/Denver.
Sustainable Neighborhood applications are due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 7.
For more information about the application process or to request a presentation at your upcoming neighborhood meeting, contact Taylor Moellers, Taylor.Moellers@denvergov.org or 720-865-5477.
