Welcome to the Stapleton United Neighbors Website

About SUN

Stapleton United Neighbors (SUN) is the registered neighborhood association for the Stapleton area. Our mission is threefold: to provide a forum for our residents; to maintain a communication network between ourselves, our neighboring Denver residents, and the city of Denver; and to act on issues of importance to the community as a whole.

SUN is comprised solely of volunteer neighbors and serves as the registered neighborhood organization for Stapleton, discussing key issues with neighbors, representing their interests, engaging in proactive problem-solving, and organizing neighborhood-building activities. See the latest news about SUN below, or click on one of the links to the left to find out more about our various committees.
 
SUN Meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, except in July and December. The SUN Outreach Committee meets from 6:30 to 7:25, followed by the SUN Board from 7:30-8:45 pm. Meetings are held at the Central Park Recreation Center at 9651 E. Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Denver 80238.  The community is welcome to attend both meetings.
