NEIGHBORHOODS AND DISTRICTS

Greenwood Village is typically known for its highly educated enclave of urban sophisticates, and the organization of the area neighborhoods is characterized by programs that encourage the development of lively urban districts and quiet residential areas.

The eastern side of Greenwood Village comprises several covenant-controlled communities. Western Greenwood Village is home to some of the most prestigious properties south of Metro Denver, which include horse pastures and farm houses.

Representatives of the Denver Technological Center area, Madden and Co. and the Plaza Tower Building have helped develop a distinct mixed-use structure. The 45-acre Village Center features office buildings, residential properties, shops and entertainment amenities. Future plans for the development include the erection of a bridge connecting the east and west sides of the Village Center.

The Brookside neighborhood was the site for a traffic-management program that encouraged motorists to reduce their speed in residential neighborhoods and maintain a traffic-calmed environment for pedestrians and bicyclists. In 2006, the Greenwood Village City Council approved the idea of making such a program available throughout the area's other residential neighborhoods. The campaign, in which residents place signs on their property reminding motorists to voluntarily reduce their speed to 20 miles per hour, generally runs for one week during the summer.
