Golden Triangle Neighborhood Plan Implementation, Executive Director Search Extended to March 25, 2016
During the past year, a diverse working group of Golden Triangle stakeholders has been meeting to discuss how best to implement the ideas and opportunities outlined in the 2014 Neighborhood Plan. That group has decided that a new nonprofit organization called the Golden Triangle Partnership (GTP) should be created to be a more inclusive, financially stronger, and more powerful voice for the interests of our community.
The GTP will absorb all the activities that are being sponsored by the Golden Triangle Association (GTA) and other registered neighborhood organizations and initiate new activities. The blueprint for the GTP has been drawn, although some procedural and operational issues (e.g., by-laws, staffing) need to be defined. The GTP also needs to file an application with the IRS for nonprofit status. While waiting for an IRS decision, the GTP is hoping to operate as a nonprofit organization through a fiscal sponsor, the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center (CNDC). There is a goal that the GTP should begin operations in April or May of 2016.
On November 10, 2014, Denver City Council adopted a new neighborhood plan for the Golden Triangle. The consulting firm MIG, in conjunction with Denver’s Community Planning Department, developed the plan with extensive input from the neighborhood (View the Plan). As stated in the plan it “sets forth a comprehensive, holistic approach, weaving together a nuanced set of strategies that collectively will foster an Eclectic, Connected, Creative, and Livable Golden Triangle.”
Beginning in 2016, the area’s Zoning and Design Guidelines will be updated to support the concepts proposed in the neighborhood plan.

Golden Triangle neighborhood is situated in a prime location immediately south of Downtown Denver, and holds the promise to be one of the city’s finest urban neighborhoods. The area’s proximity to the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Central Library, and several other major arts and cultural institutions, along with the eclectic businesses of South Broadway and the popular recreational trails along the Cherry Creek bikeway, have propelled the area into the spotlight of the City’s infill developments.
