How Does This Legacy Live On in St*pleton?
- Neighborhood is exclusive to higher income levels
- Racially homogeneous/white
- What was supposed to be a community with seamless boundaries feels like a gated community (full of parks, good schools, amenities)
- Lack of affordable housing and prices out moderate incomes
- Stapleton name is legacy of KKK in Denver
- Failure of the Stapleton development to live up to it’s goals to reflect the racial and other diversity of the surrounding communities and to provide affordable and rental housing 10% and 30% of total housing stock, respectively.
