BrentinCO: The Stapleton neighborhood in in Denver has voted to change its name due to the connection Mayor Stapleton(the neighborhoods namesake) had with the KKK.

The finalists are Skyview and Central Park.

“Through the name Skyview, may we feel a connection to each other and all of humanity,” SUN explained. “When we look at the sky, may we find the inspiration for the work that continues on the ground to make the future easier and brighter for each of us now, and for the next generation.”

Central Park, which is also the name of a recreation space along Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, “would be non-controversial, natural and drama-less, which is what our community could use right now,” the organization added.

Voting takes place next Thursday starting at 2pm and is being conducted by the Stapleton United Neighbors (SUN) community association.

Comment by Stapleton great-Grandson and former Secretary of State & gubernatorial candidate Walker Stapleton back in June when the process started.


And the winner is....Central Park
