Denver City Council District 5 Neighborhoods

East Colfax

East Colfax is a dynamic Distrct 5 neighborhood. Colfax Avenue is as unique as it is long - the longest street in America. This special street has brought all kinds of businesses and people to the area, and many changes are ahead as Denver grows and evolves.

Are You an East Colfax Neighbor?

The East Colfax neighborhood is north and south of Colfax, and it is not so easy to define where it begins and ends! The borders are generally East of Quebec, West of Yosemite, South of Montview, and North of 11th Ave. It is basically between City Council Districts 5 & 6. In the section between Quebec and Syracuse, the neighborhood extends North to 23rd Ave.

The area is also part of Denver's East Area Plan. Do you have ideas about the future of East Colfax? Join the East Area Plan Steering Committee Meetings on the fourth Thursdays of each month at Denver's Art Gym (1460 Leyden Street). The Colfax Business Improvement District will bring many changes to the area including rapid transit!

Amanda Stands for...

One Of Us

Denver City Council Candidate Amanda Sawyer is raising her family here. Vote for her in May 2019

I'm a proud mom and know what it's like to live on a budget. I understand the challenges that have caused too many Denver families to leave for the suburbs.

Putting Neighbors First

Amanda Sawyer is a candidate without ties to big developers in Denver.

Our city is going to continue to grow, that's a fact -- but we must protect the character of our neighborhoods and ensure our community has a seat at the table when discussing big development projects. 

Getting Things Done

Amanda Sawyer, Candidate for Denver City Council May 2019 will be responsive to traffic concerns

I have a track record of fighting to ensure the voices of our local community are heard. I'll continue find collaborative solutions to solve the big problems we face, and focus on getting things done.
