Outreach

Welcome to the Stapleton United Neighbors Outreach Committee web page!

The Stapleton United Neighbors (SUN) Outreach Committee consists of Block Captains and other Stapleton residents who value the sense of community that exists in Stapleton, and want to work to foster resident engagement and interaction. The SUN Outreach Committee facilitates meetings with the Stapleton Block Captain Network, liaisons with local businesses, organizations and community members from other Denver area neighborhoods, and is chaired by SUN board members. 

Goals of the SUN Outreach Committee are to:
  • Foster the sense of community that exists between Stapleton Residents through the block captain network and to connect Stapleton with the surrounding neighborhoods in Denver and Aurora
  • Keep Stapleton a safe place to live by encouraging all blocks to actively participate in the Neighborhood Watch program  
  • Provide a forum for opinions to be voiced, to facilitate communication within the community; and to pass along current and accurate information from other Stapleton organizations and committees (Safety, CAB, MCA, etc.) to residents
  • Engage the community in activities together through participation in Stapleton Block Party Day and others.
