Sun Valley Makes Headlines

Sun Valley, Jefferson Park’s adjacent neighborhood to the south has been in the news recently.

One article discusses how Sun Valley has been selected as one of nine neighborhoods across the U.S. to receive top-level strategic support in becoming an eco-district that will include better parks and open space, a walkable grocery and modern energy-efficient housing to replace the dilapidated projects.

Another article discusses a $24.5 million investment to restore natural areas along the riverbanks that includes five new parks by the end of 2015.

Benefits to Jefferson Park Residents:

  • South Platte River could be used as an amenity to residents
  • Development could spark an entertainment district like Larimer Square along West Colfax next to Brooklyn’s
  • Proposed discussion of art and theater complex
