What’s Next?” is the question we’ve heard since the Dec. 11 community-wide listening sessions about keeping or changing the Stapleton name.

October was the third month of community discussions about the name Stapleton. In the prior two months, the conversations were dominated by those who favored changing the name and representatives of five Stapleton organizations listened to those views. This month brought an emphasis on having a community conversation in which all voices would be heard, making a decision and moving the community forward in a positive way.
