UpDoNA’s neighborhood is bounded by Lawrence Street, 20th Street to 20th Avenue, 20th Avenue back to Broadway, Broadway, Colfax and Speer.  This is illustrated in the map shown below.
  • Vision: Upper Downtown will be one of the most sought-after neighborhoods for residents, businesses, and tourists.
  • Mission: To advocate for residents and businesses with the intention of improving the experience in Upper Downtown.

UpDoNA will work with neighbors, businesses and the city to identify problems and propose solutions. For example, UpDoNA is working with the city to identify root causes for the flaunting of laws that we are seeing today.  We want to eliminate the trash, graffiti, vandalism, the cleanliness of our streets and sidewalks, illegal encampments on public property, assaults and so many other things that have increased over the past two years.  We will be organizing email-writing campaigns urging change, and we’ll be using the voting power of our members to elect representatives who are willing to make the hard decisions that need to be made in order to effect real change.

 Not all homeless people commit crimes and not all criminals are homeless.
UpDoNA recognizes this fact and has a real desire to help the unhoused.
Our “UpDoNA Gives” committee is currently in the process of searching for
a homeless organization(s) with which we want to align. We plan to hold
fundraisers and solicit donations for that organization(s) in our everyday

UpDoNA depends on the funds provided through membership fees and donations to operate and fulfill our important mission for Upper Downtown.  We appreciate all donations and thank you in advance for your support!

 Your donation will enable UpDoNA to work towards making Upper Downtown Neighborhood a cleaner and safer place in which to work and live.  UpDoNA will be working with Denver city leaders to work on the issues that we currently face, e.g., open drug use, homelessness, trash cans emptied on the sidewalks, and the cleanliness and safety of our streets.  UpDoNA will also promote volunteerism and community building through social events.  Some of our budget will be used to fund membership drives which are necessary to continually expand our membership.  There is strength in numbers, and more members (who are also voters) help convince elected officials to keep residents’ quality of life in mind when making their decisions.  UpDoNA will partner with homeless organizations to help those in need.
