In 1991, a group of Denver’s Athmar Park residents decided to join together to improve the health, safety, and spirit of the area from West Alameda south to West Mississippi and from the South Platte River west to Federal Boulevard. They formed the Athmar Park Neighborhood Association, an all-volunteer organization composed of residents and business owners.
The purpose of the Athmar Park Neighborhood association is to
- To foster a spirit of community by finding positive, supportive means to meet the human and social needs that exist among the residents and businesses of the Athmar Park neighborhood.
- To preserve and enhance the character of our neighborhood by undertaking activities, such as community-based planning, to act as a guide in decisions made by the City and Count of Denver, The Denver School Board, and other institutions.
- To aid in promoting a sense of security for all residents of the neighborhood by developing the methods for dealing with, and combating, crime.
- To work with other organizations of the City and County of Denver in carrying out the foregoing purposes, and to serve as a coordinating center for community residents’ concerns.
