What We Do
Who We Are
The Lakewood-West Colfax Business Improvement District (BID) is a Colorado special district along Lakewood’s historic West Colfax corridor. The BID was formed by petition and special election in 2011. In collaboration with the City of Lakewood and other partners, we advocate for district economic development and capital investment and provide an operational platform and a stable funding source for both 40 West Arts, a 501(c)3 state-certified creative district located in the corridor; and the West Colfax Community Association (WCCA), a 501(c)6 serving local businesses, property owners, and community leaders.
Our three organizations, along with our partners, are working together to ENERGIZE Lakewood’s historic West Colfax community.
This site is a resource for you. On this site, you can create a profile to add your business or organization to our directory and post activities and happenings to our corridor events page. The events and the directory appear here as well as on the West Colfax Community Association and 40 West Arts sites.

Vision 2040 Plan
The overarching goal is to help shape West Colfax into a vibrant destination where locals and visitors come to create fresh opportunities, connect with diverse experiences, and celebrate culture, both old and new. We have a clear message that is both a vision and an invitation to all who wish to join in the journey: Experience Lakewood’s West Colfax—a creative community . . . come and be a part of the renaissance!
