City Council District 10 Candidate Forum Videos Available

UpDoNA and our sister organization LoDoNA jointly sponsored the District 10 Candidate Forum on Thursday, Feb 16th  and a second debate between the remaining two candidates on May 4, 2023.  Both were well attended, and were great successes. 

We have posted videos of both events in their entirety on our YouTube channel.  If you were unable to attend, or if you want to go back and review some of the answers, feel free to click on the following links:

What is Upper Downtown?

Formerly known as the “Central Business District”, we’re now Upper Downtown and we encompass a large section of the downtown area bordered by Lawrence Street, 20th Street, North Broadway, West Colfax and Speer Boulevard.

Our community includes over twenty residential buildings with a mix of condominiums, lofts and apartment rentals.  We’re also home to hundreds of businesses (large and small), as well as multiple parks, dining and entertainment venues of all types.
