Let's Talk About Downtown EnglewoodDowntown.Matters.Logo.2020.VERT.RGB

In Colorado and across the country, people are taking a new look at their downtown areas.

They want deeper connections to the heart of their community; places to live, shop and socialize, more ways to get around. Employers want centrally located offices with light rail access to larger cities. And downtown economic activity helps cities provide quality services and amenities for everyone.

That’s why the City of Englewood, with the Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce, kicked off the “Downtown Matters” planning initiative in January after preliminary discussions with business leaders.

They’re exploring a broader definition of downtown that includes part of South Broadway, Englewood CityCenter, and commercial areas around Craig Hospital and Swedish Medical Center. This is where much of the City’s commercial and employment activity is centered; the areas are interrelated but not cohesive.  

Other factors prompting the planning include property sales in the CityCenter area, hospital expansions, new business and development on South Broadway and new residents seeking convenient, sustainable lifestyles.

The 11-month Downtown Matters process will involve commercial property and business owners and community members to create a downtown plan that allows it to evolve in an intentional way while maintaining its unique character. The plan will consider market trends, economic development, placemaking, business support, marketing, safety and more, as well as funding and implementation tools such as a Downtown Development Authority. The grant-funded process is being led by  Denver-based Dig Studio, an urban planning and design firm; and Progressive Urban Management Associates, a national leader in downtown and community development and Portell Works, a Denver placemaking and community development firm.

Many small cities in Colorado have successful downtown revitalization programs using downtown development authorities. Castle Rock and Longmont are good examples. Here’s what Longmont business leaders had to say at an Englewood Chamber event last fall.
