Sustainable Neighborhoods Program
Your neighborhood. Your ideas. Your home.
The City of Wheat Ridge is excited to join Lakewood, Denver and Fort Collins as the newest member of the Sustainable Neighborhoods Network!
The Sustainable Neighborhoods Program gives residents the opportunity to become active partners in building a vibrant and sustainable Wheat Ridge community. Neighborhoods participating in this unique certification program receive guidance and support from city staff to organize workshops, projects and events that enhance the livability of their neighborhoods and reduce residents' ecological footprints. Participating neighborhoods earn program credits and recognition from the community and the City.
Two neighborhoods have been selected for the Wheat Ridge Sustainable Neighborhoods program: Applewood Village and Paramount Heights. These neighborhoods will be working in the fall of 2020 to develop a neighborhood communications plan, a neighborhood leadership team, and will begin to plan some low-to-no contact and/or socially distanced projects for their neighborhoods. Neighbors have expressed interest in projects like seed swaps, composting workshops, home energy audits, and wildlife friendly yards.
Applications for the Sustainable Neighborhoods program will open again in January 2021 and a “kick off event” is planned for the spring.
