The Welton Street corridor and the Five Points community has the potential to become a “great community.” Like the condition Denver was in back in 1983 before visionary Mayor Federico Pena dared citizens to “imagine a great city,” Five Points (and the Welton Street Corridor) has that same potential and is poised to achieve even greater success. Mayor Pena used that mantra back then to unify the city and set it on a path to becoming the world-class metropolis we see today.
With light rail, tremendous development potential, and a unique and rich African American and jazz history, our vision at the Five Points Business District is to apply the lessons of Mayor Pena and do the same thing.
Thank you for your support.
