City seeks citizen input and to guide future of historic neighborhood

The City of Colorado Springs Community Development Division is engaging area residents, property and business owners to identify goals, priorities and interests in the future of the historic Mill Street neighborhood. 

Anyone requiring an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this public meeting should call (719) 385-6876 no later than 48 hours in advance.

The Mill Street neighborhood has a long history of providing housing and job opportunities as a center-city working class community. With the downtown core redeveloping and the South Tejon Street commercial corridor undergoing major changes, Mill Street is subject to climbing rents and gentrification. 

Through an inclusive and consensus-building process, the neighborhood plan will set the stage for the future of the Mill Street community to be a thriving, dynamic place that celebrates its diversity and historic past. The neighborhood plan seeks to: 

  • Cultivate Mill Street character 
  • Enhance quality of life for residents 
  • Re-connect Mill Street people and places 
  • Create a resilient future 

Several trends affecting the Mill Street neighborhood will be presented during the public meeting including:

  • Affordability
  • Revitalization
  • Thriving industrial business
  • Environmental conditions
  • Connectivity
  • Historic Preservation
  • Neighborhood identity
  • Safety
  • Basic service gaps
