The Community Hub at Northfield had its grand opening on Friday, Aug. 7. The Hub, previously located in the 29th Ave. Town Center, is the new headquarters for Northeast Transportation Connections (NETC) and the District 5 Cop Shop. The bigger space accommodates these organizations’ growing presences within the community. “There is nothing like this in the state,” Lt. Bob Wyckoff said at the grand opening celebration.
Volunteers operate the Hub seven days a week, and NETC employees and District 5 community resource officers are on-site throughout the week. There is a children’s activity area, bike library, space to host public meetings or presentations, and resources like local maps and bus schedules. The public is invited to visit and learn about Northeast Denver or simply relax and get a cup of coffee. Wyckoff encourages neighbors to stop by and get to know their local officers. The Cop Shop will also host safety courses and burglary seminars.
The Community Hub at Northfield is located at 8230 Northfield Blvd., Suite 1350 across from Toby Keith’s and can be reached at 720.865.2356. “If you need a place to meet, give us a call. This is your Hub,” said Angie Malpiede, vice president of the Stapleton Foundation, who also oversees NETC.
