EGS&P and the GES Steering Committee is currently establishing a community council of zip code 80216 neighbors that will advise a community-based health study of North Denver starting in 2021. In this capacity, EGS&P works with community leaders, scientists and public health officials to create resident-driven participatory research goals. These activities are related to Sierra Club, et al. v. Chao, et. al, an environmental justice lawsuit that addressed the widening of the I-70 highway through North Denver. The settlement establishes a funding stream for a community-based health study and climate resilience activities in Globeville, Elyria and Swansea.
The walking tours is a project that the EGS Community Council began in August 6, 2021. The purpose of the project is to get to know the neighborhoods of Elyria, Globeville and Swansea through residents of those neighborhoods.
The residents who are the EGS Community Council, are the tour guides, who talk about their neighborhood, what they like and what affects them as a community.
