Skyview or Central Park?

The voter-decided process to pick a new name for Denver’s soon-to-be-former Stapleton neighborhood has produced two finalists. By Saturday, a winner should be known and the last name of the city’s former mayor and known Ku Klux Klan member Benjamin F. Stapleton will be one step closer to being history in the east Denver enclave.

Stapleton United Neighbors, the registered neighborhood organization managing the voting process, announced on its Facebook page Sunday that Skyview and Central Park were the top two vote-getting choices in the second round of public polling.

Online voting in the final round is open. Adult residents of the neighborhood have until 2 p.m. Thursday to cast a ballot.
