Greater Paths Committee

The Greater Paths Committee is made up of business leaders and residents who are interested in being greater environmental stewards and those who want to improve the walk and bikeability of the neighborhood. We are seeking leaders for the committee who are interested in pushing forward projects to complete the Green Business District project started by Stephanie, our former board president, whereby no fewer than 50% + 1 of named Uptown businesses adhere to Denver’s Certifiably Green standards; to host a Ciclovia once per year, which encompasses one stretch of road to become a bikes and pedestrian-only space for one weekend per year; and to raise money for and work with Walk Denver to achieve their goals of becoming a more walkable neighborhood through surveys and signage. Please contact Jessica at greaterpaths@uptowndenver.org to join our team and find out about committee meeting times.
