Your neighborhood. Your ideas. Your home.
Denver’s Sustainable Neighborhoods Program gives residents the opportunity to become active partners in making Denver a vibrant and sustainable community. Neighborhoods participating in this unique certification program use guidance from City staff to organize workshops, projects, and events that enhance the livability of their neighborhood and reduce residents' ecological footprint. Participating neighborhoods earn program credits for their efforts and, depending on the number of credits earned in a given year, they may receive designation as a “Participating Sustainable Neighborhood” or an “Outstanding Sustainable Neighborhood” from the City. Program participation can enhance the environmental and social strength of a neighborhood while demonstrating commitment to sustainability in Denver. In addition, the participation benefits may include recognition from City Council, neighborhood signage, education, and an increased sense of community.
