EPA Recognizes Denver’s Mariposa District for Smart Growth Achievement

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized Denver’s Mariposa District with the 2012 National Award for Smart Growth Achievement in the category of Equitable Development. The prestigious national award is given for creative, sustainable initiatives that help protect the health and the environment of our communities while also strengthening local economies. The Denver Housing Authority’s redevelopment of the Mariposa District in the La Alma and Lincoln Park neighborhood is transforming the area into a vibrant, mixed-use community. The Mariposa District project is supported by the federal Partnership for Sustainable Communities, an effort which brought EPA, HUD and DOT together to provide assistance and funding to help plan and achieve specific housing, transportation, energy efficiency and green infrastructure goals.
