Some Disturbing News
Dear Friends,

I have recently learned of some disturbing activity in our neighborhood and want to ask your help. The High Point Creamery, a local business located at 211 S. Holly St., has become embroiled in a parking dispute with a neighbor. It seems a neighbor is displeased by a commercial vehicle (an ice cream truck) parking on neighborhood side streets. This vehicle is typically stored off-site from the shop, but on occasion when there is a need to store the truck closer to the shop and the back lot behind the store is not available, it has been parked on Cedar Avenue.

Someone has delivered threatening notes and letters falsely claiming to represent the Cranmer Park-Hilltop Civic Association (CPHCA) and this activity recently escalated to vandalizing this business owner's property; someone keyed the vehicle and damaged the vinyl wrapping. The Denver Police Department is currently investigating the matter. If you have any information about this criminal property damage, please contact the Denver Police Department.

I believe disputes like this are best handled through direct conversation. When this is not possible, asking intermediaries such as the CPHCA to intervene on your behalf is a much better option than confrontation or vandalism. Resolving disputes like these is one of the roles the CPHCA serves for our neighborhood. This is also one of my duties as your elected representative on City Council. In the future, before these disputes get out of hand, contact one of us so we can help find a more peaceful resolution.

 

Council Dist. 5 Boundaries Change on July 20

As many of you know, in 2011 City Council undertook the arduous task of redrawing the Council District boundaries for Denver. Redistricting is required to be done every ten years and it is based on the most recent U.S. Census data. Denver’s Charter says the city’s population must be as evenly divided among the eleven Council Districts as possible. Effective Monday, July 20th, the boundaries of Council District 5 will change. 

Though most of the district won’t be impacted, there are a few boundary changes to note:
  • Constituents north of Colfax Avenue will now be in Councilman Chris Herndon’s Council District 8.
  • The northwestern boundary of the district will extend to Colorado Boulevard – encompassing the entire Bellevue-Hale neighborhood.
  • On the southern edge of the district, residents between South Oneida Street and South Quebec Street and East Exposition Avenue and Leetsdale Drive will be a part of Councilman-elect Paul Kashmann’s Council District 6.
  • Also on the southern edge, District 5 (west of South Oneida Street) will expand south to East Tennessee Avenue and Vale Drive.
Councilman-elect Kashmann, Councilman Herndon and I will work diligently together to serve the interests in our shared neighborhoods. You can see a map of the new district here. You can also plug in your address to find your district.
 

Share Your Thoughts

The Colfax Mayfair Business Improvement District is officially launching their streetscape design project and is seeking your opinion. They need input from everyone who is walking, biking, shopping, eating and doing business in the district. The more input, the better, so please take a few minutes to share your thoughts. Also, feel free to share the survey with friends, neighbors and colleagues. The survey will be open until June 15. Here is the link: http://colfaxmayfairbid.com/streetscape-improvement-project/

 

Westerly Creek Channel Restoration Project

Please join Denver Parks & Recreation and the Urban Drainage & Flood Control District for a public meeting on Westerly Creek. This project will look at opportunities to enhance Westerly Creek from 11th to 13th Avenues. DPR and UDFCD are seeking community input on how this area can better benefit the neighborhood. 

The meeting will be help Thursday, June 18th from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at Xenia Village Clubroom at 1415 Xenia St. For more information please contact Cincere Eades at 720-913-0655 or cincere.eades@denvergov.org.

Protect Yourself From Mosquitos This Summer

As summer arrives, so does mosquito season. Denver Environmental Health’s (DEH) Mosquito Control Program uses an approach designed to keep mosquito populations at a safe level. This includes: monitoring and treating mosquito populations; trapping, counting, and testing adult mosquitoes for West Nile Virus; and partner with other landowners to assist them in controlling mosquitoes.

DEH monitors mosquito presences in over 60 sites in the city and larvicides (kills mosquito larvae) in known problem areas. How to protect yourself and family from mosquito bites and West Nile Virus: 

Prevention and Control
  • Limit outdoor activity at dusk and dawn.
  • Wear protective clothing like pants and long sleeves when outdoors.
  • Wear mosquito repellant containing lemon eucalyptus oil, DEET, picaridian, or IR3535.
Eliminate Mosquito Breeding Sites
  • Frequently remove standing water from containers, tires, birdbaths, gutters and buckets in and around your yard.
  • Do not overwater your yard, as it can create standing water in gutters and storm sewers.
  • Properly maintain fountains and swimming pools to ensure circulation, or drain and cover if not in use.
Mosquito-Proof Your Home
  • Install screens on windows and doors.
  • Make sure roof gutters are not clogged and holding water.
  • Incorporate xeriscape (non-watered landscaping).
Visit www.denvergov.org/mosquito for additional information and larvicide locations map and mosquito trap counts.
 
 

Efforts to Address Special Event Noise

As you know, Denver is rapidly growing as people from all over the country make our city their new home. The City is committed to ensuring that this growth happens in the most responsible way. With more City dwellers, come more interest in events, and more attendees at events. With the influx comes a greater need to monitor these events and the event organizers to ensure our City laws are followed.

The Mayor’s Office has been facilitating a multi-agency partnership to better understand the current state of special event noise complaints. The Policy Review Committee and the multi-agency working group determined that the City does not have enough information to make informed recommendations to change the noise ordinance at this time. With this in mind, we will be carefully studying and working to understand the impacts of over 650 special events during the 2015 event season.

We are asking that residents send feedback during the event. This feedback helps guide limited city resources to monitor and enforce events as they occur. Please call 720-913-1311 or visit http://www.denvergov.org/311helpcenter.
 

Changes at Denver Motor Vehicle

Did you know that the Denver Motor Vehicle is making it easier for customers to do business?  Denver Motor Vehicle recently eliminated the convenience fee on credit card transactions, created an option for new car owners to purchase their plates over the phone, and are now sending drivers a postage paid Renewal Mailer to renew their plates, which allows drivers to avoid visiting a DMV office altogether. These efforts have cut the average wait time at the Denver Motor Vehicle in half.
 
If your HOA or community group would like to learn more about these changes and how they help save you time and money, contact Denver Motor Vehicle Director Tony Frazzini to schedule a presentation by email Tony.frazzini@denvergov.org or call 720.865.4608. With your help, we can continue to improve customer service and satisfaction at the Denver Motor Vehicle.
 

Denver Animal Shelter Needs You

Want to make the world a better place in one easy step? Take home a foster pet from Denver Animal Shelter today! Fostering means bringing in a cat or dog with medical or behavioral conditions that would improve more quickly in a home setting. The goal is to nurture them for a while until they can find a permanent, loving home. Fostering is a crucial part of saving Denver homeless pets — it's also amazing, for you and for the animals. Various animals may require foster homes: under aged or underweight puppies (sometimes kittens) and adult dogs and cats with moderate health issues.

There is just no better feeling that could ever compare to knowing that your contribution has saved a life! For more information on how to become a foster volunteer today, visit our website.

PARK HILL REALTORS AGREE: DEMAND HIGH, NO SLOWDOWN IN SIGHT

Several Park Hill real estate agents agree with new reports indicating Denver’s very robust market is likely to stay that way. A mortgage broker sees heavy activity in refinancing, and a nonprofit agency director observes pressure on modest housing.“Low inventory still creates strong demand,” says Park Hill specialist Emily Roet. “The market is very robust, and there are more buyers than good listings.” More...

Why: The North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative (NDCC) is hosting a public meeting on Thursday, June 18 to update the community on the preliminary design of the Brighton Boulevard Redevelopment Project. The project team has been working on design options for public multi-modal right-of-way improvements between 29th Street and 44th Street. This meeting is an important opportunity to speak up in favor of designs that enhance safety and convenience for pedestrians both walking along and crossing the Boulevard.

We hope you will join us in celebrating RiNo's street art and helping making the neighborhood more walkable!
