Thank you to those that participated in the City’s Let’s Talk Resident Engagement Program engagement blitz for East Wheat Ridge from October 2020 to March 2021. We've enjoyed talking to you and your neighbors and appreciate the time and energy you gave us to provide feedback on neighborhood opportunities and challenges.

The East Wheat Ridge blitz consisted of two rounds of engagement that included two surveys and nine virtual meetings. Over 400 East Wheat Ridge residents participated over the course of five months. To learn more about the blitz and what your neighbors had to say, explore the East Wheat Ridge Blitz Report here.


What's Next After the Engagement Blitz?

Resident feedback shapes a program work plan that may include future City budget requests and what projects to work on in the near and long term. The Let's Talk Program Work Plan is updated continuously and after each engagement blitz. City Council reviewed and evaluated the East Wheat Ridge Blitz Report and Let's Talk Program Work Plan on April 5, 2021. You can view this Work Plan on the main program page at https://whatsupwheatridge.com/lets-talk.

We still want to hear from East Wheat Ridge residents outside of the engagement blitzes! If you have comments or questions about a specific topic, email us at lets-talk@ci.wheatridge.co.us and we can point you to the right person or project. If you have general comments about the neighborhood you'd like to share, you can leave your comment using the Forum tool below.


What is Let's Talk East Wheat Ridge?

This page is part of the City’s Let’s Talk Resident Engagement Program. The program breaks the city down into 10 neighborhoods. City officials conduct a neighborhood engagement "blitz" two neighborhoods at a time, with a goal of covering the city in about two year cycles. The East Wheat Ridge blitz ran from October 2020 to February 2021.

Round 1 of the blitz included a "Prime the Pump" survey and several virtual events to home in on what's important to residents. Round 2 of the blitz included an "Action Survey" that tied directly to what we heard was most important to residents during Round 1. The results of the engagement blitzes feed into a Let's Talk Program Work Plan that is updated continuously and after each blitz and evaluated by City Council.

Why are we doing this?

In 2018, City officials heard loud and clear that residents want more and better opportunities to weigh in on issues that impact their neighborhoods. This resulted in the 2019 adoption of an updated Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy (NRS) by City Council. The update was led by a 26-member Wheat Ridge resident committee.

The NRS is a citywide policy document that reflects a year of robust community input. The primary recommendation is for the City to conduct focused engagement of residents at the neighborhood level.
