The Five Points Business Improvement District strengthens and enhances the efforts of business and property owners who live, work in, or contribute to the Historic Five Points neighborhood of Denver. Our District Board’s mission is to positively influence financial accountability and cultural responsibility as the area undergoes redevelopment and growth. The Five Points Business Improvement District will hold true to the best values of the past, embrace inclusive opportunities of the present and look forward to a vibrant future.
The work of the BID is focused on the following:
Maintenance of the public right of way including trash and debris removal and snow shoveling.
Marketing and communications to promote business development, cultural promotion and preservation.
Capital investment such as street lighting and trash receptacles.
The Five Points Business Improvement District is a ten-block corridor positioned along Welton Street on the northeast edge of downtown Denver. It is experiencing a rebirth of energy and interest after years of dormancy. Its urban location, culturally rich history, and convenient light rail access positions the area to be the next “it” neighborhood. When you combine those factors with the rapid growth of the district’s surrounding neighborhoods, you have the formula for a great business and cultural corridor.
The effort around Business Improvement Development involves the recruitment of new, relevant, and neighborhood-serving businesses; strengthening existing businesses; and collaborating with property owners, residents, the City, developers, non-profits and other stakeholders to promote and support the development of the corridor.
The effort around Cultural Promotion & Preservation involves marketing the corridor as a cultural and tourism destination for arts, culture, and entertainment and that showcases Denver’s African American history and the area’s rich jazz heritage.
The effort around The Greater Good involves taking a “whole-system” approach to revitalizing the Five Points area, which means considering issues beyond economic development like education, transportation, safety, children & families, and issues around health.
