About SUN

Stapleton United Neighbors (SUN) is the registered neighborhood organization 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.

Kick-off Workshop Sustainable Neighborhoods Program, Wednesday, 2/28/2018 6:30-8:30 PM
The Cube Stapleton (8371 Northfield Blvd)
Stapleton will be launching its participation in the City and County of Denver's Sustainable Neighborhoods Program with a kick-off workshop. The Sustainable Neighborhoods Program is a certification program that offers resources and support to neighborhoods seeking to organize workshops, projects, and events that enhance the livability of their neighborhood and reduce residents' ecological footprint. Participating neighborhoods earn program credits for their efforts while the city provides in-kind resources, such as printing, venue and catering fees, and staff time to support projects. https://www.sustainableneighborhoodnetwork.org/sustainable-neighborhoods-denver 
The purpose of the kick-off will be to connect residents interested in participating in program projects, to hear directly from city staff on how the program works, and to provide an opportunity for residents with common areas of interest to start brainstorming project ideas. No commitment will be asked of anyone at the meeting. We encourage anyone in the community interested in learning more about this program to attend.  Please contact Geoff Horsfall at geoff.horsfall@gmail.com with questions.

An open letter to the community


Dear Neighbors,

We are deeply disturbed by the escalation of hateful sentiment and shocked and horrified by the events one week ago in Charlottesville Virginia. We unify in condemning all forms of hateful acts, violence, racism, anti-Semitism, bigotry and xenophobia, and efforts by alt-right and white supremacy groups, the Ku Klux Klan, and any other group espousing hatred and violence. As we collectively send condolences to the family and friends of Heather Heyer, the woman who was killed, and share our prayers and thoughts for those injured in Charlottesville, we together say clearly, that there is no place for these displays of hatred in our neighborhood nor anywhere.

Stapleton is a strong, diverse, and vibrant community, and we share the hopeful wish that we all can come together to support each other and engage in a productive dialogue.
