About

Lower Downtown Neighborhood Association

WHO WE ARE

The Lower Downtown Neighborhood Association (LoDoNA) is a city-registered neighborhood organization representing residents in Lower Downtown and the Central Platte Valley since 1988. We are a volunteer organization committed to preserving and enhancing the quality of life in Lower Downtown and the Central Platte Valley through community-building, philanthropy, advocacy, and partnership.

COMMUNITY BUILDING

LoDoNA builds community by hosting social events for our members and the neighborhood. Monthly WeeBoT socials highlight neighborhood restaurants/bars. Monthly Women’s and Men’s Coffees provide a come as you are opportunity to connect. Weekly Conversations for Connection, a guided meeting, allow neighbors to connect on a deeper level with each other.

PHILANTHROPY

In 2013, Lower Downtown was named a Compassionate Neighborhood. LoDoCares, a joint effort with Lower Downtown District, Inc., engages neighbors in volunteer activities and fundraising for the Barth Hotel (Senior Housing Options) residents, holiday projects, persons experiencing homelessness, and seasonal clean-ups of our prized Cherry Creek.

ADVOCACY

LoDoNA advocates for quality of life in an urban setting. Opportunities abound to engage with City Council members, civic leaders, and city planning departments. Our Good Neighbor Committee negotiates with businesses to ensure peaceful coexistence in a mixed-use neighborhood making LoDo a great place to live, play, and work.

PARTNERSHIP

LoDoNA fosters partnerships within the neighborhood to provide hyper-local news. Want to be in the know about the next great development in LoDo? Want to make a deeper connection with your neighbors? Our newsletter keeps you informed about street closures, events — even Union Station Farmers Market.
