Board Members At-Large
Alyssa has lived in City Park West for six years, and Colorado for over 16 years. She earned a Masters in Urban & Regional Planning from the University of Colorado | Denver, and works as a Planner for the City of Fort Lupton. She may be biased, but happens to think City Park West is the best neighborhood in Denver, especially since there are so many one-of-a-kind restaurants and shops in the area to walk to.
