Here are 151 names Stapleton residents have suggested for renaming their neighborhood

Local

DENVER (KDVR) — Stapleton leaders are moving forward with a plan to rename the northeast Denver neighborhood.

Last week, the Stapleton Master Community Association voted unanimously to change the name.

Benjamin Stapleton, a member of the Ku Klux Klan, served as Denver’s mayor for five terms in the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s. He helped the KKK seize control of politics in Denver and Colorado.

Below is a list of 151 name suggestions that had been submitted by Stapleton residents as of Tuesday night. Once the list is narrowed down, neighborhood residents will vote on a new name.
