LoDo Member Testimonials
“I joined LoDo District because as a small business owner, I wanted to stay informed about what was happening in the neighborhood. I also wanted to have “a say” in what was going on in the neighborhood. What I didn’t know when I first became a LoDo District member is that I had joined an amazing community full of passionate residents and business owners. We all share a common goal of protecting the history of LoDo while also embracing its future. Getting involved with LoDo District has been one of the most rewarding and valuable experiences I’ve had both personally and professionally.”
“I am a LoDo property owner and local resident, and I rely on LoDo District, Inc. to help me stay ahead of issues that impact my property and my neighborhood. As a volunteer Board member, I appreciate the chance to share ideas with others to work collectively toward improving LoDo as a place to live, work, and play. ”

What are the boundaries of the District? Are there strict boundaries?
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.
What does The LoDo District do?
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.
What does my membership donation go toward?
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.
What is LoDo Cares and how can I give back in my community?
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.
How does The LoDo District connect people 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.
