The Future of Olde Town
The effort to create an Olde Town Arvada Strategic Reinvestment Plan is in its final phase. The City of Arvada began the long range planning effort for the future of Olde Town in June 2022 and has requested community feedback through various surveys and events throughout the duration of the process. Most recently, the City hosted an open house this past March, which provided the opportunity for public comments on the plans prior to the team presenting the final plans and recommendations to City Council this spring.
The City team has revised the Olde Town plans to include feedback heard from the community and will present the final plans to City Council on May 8, 2023. The City will then incorporate City Council's feedback on the plans and then post the finalized Olde Town Strategic Reinvestment Plan to the City of Arvada’s website for public review and comment for 30 days from posting.

Current Olde Town Street Closures
As part of the City's continuing efforts to support recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, the City has partnered with the Olde Town Arvada Business Improvement District (BID) to close a few streets in the area to vehicle traffic. This allows shops and restaurants to use sidewalks for seating and shopping, leaving streets open for pedestrian traffic.
