Starting in 2011, EPA’s Land Revitalization Program and staff from Region 8 supported a project to design green infrastructure for Westerly Creek, an impacted stream in Denver’s East Colfax neighborhood, a community with a largely immigrant population and environmental justice concerns. The stream restoration component was an unfunded component of a larger project between Trust for Public Lands and the City and County of Denver that transformed a vacant lot into a park with recreational facilities and a community garden.
