UpDoNA has created a committee structure that is used to carry out its important work. The structure reflects the core values of Safety, Cleanliness, and Compassion, keeping residents informed about city activities, and building community through social events designed to enable our members to meet other residents who live in the Upper Downtown neighborhood.
Overseen by the “Residents for a Safe, Clean and Compassionate Denver Committee”, there are three separate committees that carry on the core work. They are the “Safety & Quality of Life Committee”, the “Clean Sustainable Denver Committee” and the “UpDoNA Cares Committee”. The “Scooter Committee” works specifically to address the safety issues that pedestrians are facing due to the increase in usage of scooters and e-bikes. The “Arts & Beautification Committee” works to beautify the Upper Downtown area through increased plantings and through the increased acquisition of public artwork.
The “Good Neighbor Committee” works with applicants for liquor licenses to develop agreements that they will operate their establishments in a manner respectful of the needs of a mixed commercial/residential neighborhood like the Upper Downtown.
The “City Liaison” works closely with the City of Denver on issues affecting our members and will disseminate relevant information to our community.
Our committees consist of our members and their efforts in promoting the mission of the organization.
