Lakewood-W.Colfax BID

The Lakewood-West Colfax Business Improvement District (The BID) was formed by petition and special election in November of 2011. It is a special district along West Colfax in Lakewood that focuses on district advocacy, district identity, and economic development activities.  In collaboration with the City of Lakewood, the West Colfax Community Association (WCCA), Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design (RMCAD) and a range of other groups, the Lakewood-West Colfax BID is working with the business and property owners along West Colfax to manifest the vision embodied in the West Colfax Avenue Action Plan (2006) and the West Colfax Vision 2040 Action Plan (2015)–both adopted by Lakewood’s City Council.

The Lakewood-West Colfax BID is working to support revitalization efforts within the West Colfax Corridor by focusing on the following areas:

  1. Awareness programs, special events, and other economic development activities to increase knowledge and appreciation of West Colfax’s history and businesses and attract more and new customers to the area
  2. Capital improvements, i.e. streetscapes, median enhancements, pedestrian amenities; public art and place-making programs, and safety and beautification programs to create a revitalized identity
  3. Programs and/or incentives for local businesses to encourage greater collaboration, clean-up initiatives and frontage improvements
  4. Creation and ongoing operation of arts/cultural districts and activities along West Colfax to develop and promote consumer destinations
  5. A unified voice for the business and property owners to help attract public and private grants, thus bringing IloveWestColfaxadditional dollars for programs and  improvements to the corridor

These five focus areas appear in both the West Colfax Avenue Action Plan and the West Colfax Vision 2040 Action Plan, guiding improvements and initiatives in the corridor.
