We heard you, business owners and neighbors, this district needs to tidy up! We have installed trash cans, branded with the district logo, along Colfax. Come on out to Colfax, to see new cans and grab a bite to eat or a tasty drink at one of our unique area establishments!
The district pays for periodic sidewalk clean up, including trash and gum removal.
The Bluebird has invested in tree health with trimming and treating all of the trees in the district for parasites and disease. Our trees are important to make walking the district comfortable and safer.
The district installs these annually to create a festive atmosphere.
The Bluebird District Maintains the green pedestrian lights. We keep these up and running to improve safety and help cars see pedestrians at night.
The City and County of Denver continues to develop concepts and designs for Bus Rapid Transit on Colfax Avenue. The Bluebird District has been tracking this effort, asking questions we see as critical regarding design, business access, mobility for all users and how BRT can improve the placemaking components of our district if done with desirable amenities.

The Bluebird District has worked diligently with our Colfax partners, area stakeholders and the City and County of Denver to advocate for pedestrian safety and amenities improvements on Colfax. Through this strong collaboration and support from Council members $20 million for pedestrian safety and amenities improvements on Colfax Avenue were included in the General Obligation Bond package. These improvements are a critical component to creating a Colfax that is safer to cross, friendly to stroll along and unites our communities along Denver’s iconic main street. Thank you to all for the support and diligence for this effort.
The Colfax Corridor Connections project is studying potential long-term mobility improvements for East Colfax Avenue to enhance and revitalize this signature corridor.
Colfax Avenue has long been a key east-west transportation route for Downtown Denver, Auraria Campus, Anschutz Medical Campus and nearly 50 schools — it is also a thriving community, with retail, nightlife and residential development creating a “Main Street” feel along one of the area’s oldest, most historic streets.
The City and County of Denver is working on an area plan that includes the Bluebird District. Bluebird District board members are actively participating in the steering committee for this effort. The plan will include a higher level and long-term vision for the area and provide guidance on policy revisions, design guidelines and how people move about and through our communities.
