Truman Comes Home!!!!

Truman was found safe the evening of April 23rd hiding out under a car at East Colfax and Yosemite Street! The car's owner was able to coax Truman out and called the owner Sarah who's number was on his collar. Sarah and Truman are catching up after his two weeks on the road and are both happy to be together again after a very scary couple of weeks.

Sarah would like to thank the neighborhood support in bringing Truman home. This truly shows the power of our communities!

The following list of candidates has been certified to run for Denver Municipal Office as of April 16,  including two write-in candidates for Mayor:
As a neighborhood leader (I am president of Lowry United Neighborhoods), I am particularly encouraged that Larry Ambrose -- a long time neighborhood leader in Denver and an advocate of Smart Responsible Growth for Denver--  has agreed to accept write-in votes for Mayor of Denver.  His name being registered with the Denver Election Division, should you write in Larry Ambrose and fill the red circle, your vote will be counted.
Yes, it may be the 11th hour!  But for those of us in Denver's neighborhoods who are familiar with Larry's tireless work to defend the legacy of Denver's wonderful parks, and his willingness to raise concerns with the reckless and adverse affects of the overdevelopment frenzy in Denver,  this is an opportunity to vote for a committed neighborhood neighborhood leader.
All you have to do is fill in Larry Ambrose in the write-in line under Mayor, and fill in the red circle next to his printed name when you are done.
Please pass this on, and pass on the link to Larry Ambrose's new Facebook page as well.
Thank you. Please feel free to call me if you have questions.

Spring Application and the Spring Learning Community
View this email in your browser
Spring Application: Now open!
Denver Environmental Health is soliciting applications from residents and neighborhood organizations for Denver’s Sustainable Neighborhoods Program. The spring application round is now open! Applications will be due on May 29th.

The Sustainable Neighborhoods Program encourages and supports residents in designing and leading community projects that enhance the environmental and social strength of their neighborhoods. Neighborhoods earn credits for these projects with the potential of achieving City Sustainable Neighborhood designation.
Two neighborhoods will be selected to participate this spring. They will join the 5 participating neighborhoods: West Colfax, North City Park, Chaffee Park-Regis, Barnum, and Villa Park. Participating Sustainable Neighborhoods will earn credits for achieving sustainability goals by completing projects such as offering recycling workshops, promoting a local community garden, installing artwork in neighborhood alleys, or getting neighbors to commit to making their homes more energy efficient.
Depending on the number of credits earned in a given year, neighborhoods can be designated as a “Participating Sustainable Neighborhood” or an “Outstanding Sustainable Neighborhood.”
Neighborhoods receive in-kind support from the City, in the form of outreach materials, printing, venue fees, food, and staff time to assist with outreach and project development.
To learn more about the program and the application process visit
For more information, please contact Taylor Moellers at or 720-865-5477.
We look forward to your application and to the next round of Sustainable Neighborhoods!

Happy 50th Anniversary to Emick's Auto Service! First opened April 23, 1965!

Park Hill Community Garage Sale!

The SUN transportation committee was invited to share this information with the community about an upcoming event in Aurora. Many Stapleton residents bike along Montview to get to work at Anschutz Medical Campus.
* * *
I am working with the City of Aurora on their Montview Corridor Study which is looking at the best ways to improve movement along Montview Boulevard, notably, adding a bike lane. We are having a demonstration event on May 9 at North Middle School, the community is invited to bring their bikes and test the proposed bike lane. At our last meeting we had a number of people attend from the Stapleton neighborhood. I was hoping you could distribute the attached invitation through the Stapleton network. We would love to have them turn out, as this affects them as well.
We would love to see you there.
