BHNA is actively involved in sustainability issues!
The Baker neighborhood joined the City of Denver Sustainable Neighborhoods Program in January 2016. Through this program, BHNA and neighborhood residents will organize workshops, projects, and events that enhance the livability of their neighborhood and reduce residents' ecological footprint. If you are doing anything to make the neighborhood a more sustainable or livable place, please log it here:
Sustainability initiatives we are currently working on include:
- Energy Efficiency
Our goal is to inform and incentivize Baker residents to make better decisions about how to increase their home’s energy performance in a way that maximizes energy savings while preserving the historic character of the home.
- Clean and Green
Our goal is to keep the neighborhood beautify and “green” by reducing waste, promoting composting, and encouraging the planting of low-water xeric gardens.
Give items a second life through our Baker Bargain Bonanza or help us maintain our low-water garden at 6th Avenue and Bannock through our Baker Blooms events.
- Neighborhood Livability
Our goal is to promote the livability of Baker through community events and advocate for public improvements that enhance multimodal transportation networks and public health.
Make sure to attend our annual Home Tour and bring the children out to the Ice Cream Social. Volunteer to help WalkDenver identify poor or dangerous pedestrian infrastructure in the neighborhood.
If you would like to get involved in any of these issues, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
