Frequently Asked Questions About A LoDo Membership
We at the LoDo District like to say that “LoDo is a state of mind”. While there are strict boundaries of the Historic District for zoning and character preservation purposes, we have member businesses all over downtown Denver. The historic district’s boundaries are Wynkoop Street to the West, 20th Street to the north, Larimer Street to the East, and Speer Boulevard to the South.
We’re a Registered Neighborhood Organization that represents both the residential and commercial communities, and functions as a LoDo-specific chamber of commerce, visitor’s bureau, advocacy agent, and marketing entity.
The LoDo District receives no government funding and depends entirely on member donations to fund all projects, initiatives, events, and communications. Membership dues go directly toward community impact and operational costs.
LoDo Cares is a philanthropic organization that partners the LoDo District with the LoDo Neighborhood Association (LoDoNA) to give back to the neighborhood in a variety of ways. Cherry Creek clean-ups, partnerships with Women’s Homelessness Initiative and Showers for All, and events at the Barth Hotel assisted living are just a few ways we engage people from diverse backgrounds to come together meaningfully to make a difference in LoDo.
We host a variety of networking events, including member gatherings and happy hours, and encourage members to see spaces they may have never had access to via our member businesses. Committee meetings are a great way to connect with our network of business leaders and property owners in Lower Downtown.
