Motel Owners meeting overview by Larry Drees, Vice-President of the East Montclair Neighborhood Association.

On Wednesday night Larry Drees and the Denver Police Department, City Attorney's Office met for a second meeting with the East Colfax Motel owners that operate between Monaco and Yosemite. The main purpose of this meeting was to assist the owners with legal advice from an outside attorney. The advice is what many already knew, that when you rent to a person over 30 days it becomes a gray area of whether or not you are an innkeeper or landlord which can make it more difficult in a potential eviction process. One suggestion was for the owners to hire a private attorney collectively and put together a contract for residents and guests that states that the owner is only an innkeeper and not a landlord.

The Denver police also went over suggestions they have for the owners and managers and their responsibility with reducing crime in front of their properties and in their establishments.

Detective Milo (DPD abatement officer) educated the owners that if they call in a crime and get an abatement notice, to call him and they will look into the case and if the owners are proactive in calling in issues he can potentially remove the abatement notices.

It is important for the motel owners and managers to be proactive and reporting crimes and other issues on and around their property to be come better neighborhood allies.

Many of the motel owners and managers also expressed interest in becoming business members of the East Montclair neighborhood association!

Protest of Monaco & Colfax 7-Eleven Liquor License Application

The East Montclair Neighborhood Association at its last general monthly meeting voted to oppose the application for a 3.2% beer/fermented beverage liquor license for the new 7-Eleven between Magnolia and Monaco and East Colfax Avenue. The letter from the association that was filed with the City of Denver Excise and License Department is attached below.

The 7-11 store under construction on Colfax & Monaco in Montclair (known as the annual Christmas Tree lot) is scheduled to open mid-August and operate 24 hrs. per day. It has applied for a "3.2 aka Fermented Malt Beverages Liquor License (Off Premises.)" The liquor license hearing will be scheduled soon and all of us will get the word out when the date is available. The hearing is open to the public and attendees are permitted to speak if they wish. Neighbors are strongly encouraged to attend because the larger number of citizens that are present the more likely the application will be denied.


Historic Montclair Community Association, along with Mayfair Neighbors and East Montclair Neighborhood Association will formally oppose the 3.2 application are circulating a petition against the license. The designated signature area is for residents that live in the following boundaries, 10th Ave. & Montview, Olive & Kearney. Residents living within these boundaries can sign the petition and only these signatures will be considered in opposition of the alcohol permit; however, anyone can attend the hearing even if not in the signature area and you are strongly encouraged to do so.

Please contact Carrie O'Shea, President of the Historic Montclair Neighborhood Association via email in order to arrange to sign the petition at: if you live in the designated signature area.

Permitting software upgrade
Denver will implement new permitting software June 4-8, 2015. Here's what you need to know.

Why is Denver implementing new permitting software?
Accela is a software system used by municipalities across the United States to automate permitting processes. This system will streamline Denver's permitting process behind the scenes, while improving the level of customer service we provide to the public. It will link more than 200 record types and active permits -- making many processes that are still done on paper electronic. The system will also improve project tracking, measuring and monitoring, while opening doors for more information to be made available online.

The city's current permitting system is slow, buggy and cannot meet current permitting demand. Without upgrading, productivity would eventually grind to a halt as the old system could no longer be maintained.
Plan Ahead!
Permit Counter will be Closed Friday, June 5
To prepare for launch of the new software, Denver's Development Services permit counter will be CLOSED on FRIDAY, JUNE 5.
On Thursday, June 4 beginning at noon, no permits will be issued. Staff will be available Thursday afternoon for consultation and plan log-in.

The permit counter will open at the normal time on Monday, June 8. Customers may experience longer wait times the week of June 8 as our teams become accustomed to using the new system.
Thank you for your patience and for working with us to create a better Denver.


How will the upgrade affect customers in the short term?
Permit counter customers may experience longer wait times in the first days and weeks after the target launch date -- June 8. Most business process changes associated with the new system will be invisible to customers. In the rare cases where minor business processes changes apply, additional customer guidance will be provided.

How will the upgrade affect customers in the long term?
This step to replace an old, dying software system is laying the groundwork for better, faster, more efficient city services and public-facing features.
  • When fully implemented later in 2016, customers will be able to:
    • Check their permit status online
    • Get faster, more efficient inspections from inspectors carrying synced mobile devices 
  • It will expand opportunities down the road for further offerings, like:
    • Permit data available online
    • Electronic permitting
    • Scheduling inspections online
    • Renewing licenses online
    • Online payment
Why do this in the midst of the largest permit volumes in years?
It's precisely because of the peaking permit volumes that we need to upgrade the technology we use to serve customers. We don't want to continue to patch up an old system that gets slower, more buggy and more obsolete every day. We need greater capabilities to meet our customers' needs for more efficient service and more online options. This will accommodate rising volumes and set us up for future success. Given the volume of construction and development going on in Denver right now, there's really no good time to make the switch, so we're ripping off the Band-Aid now.

What about those customers who have already experienced volume-related delays?
We understand that some of our customers have experienced delays lately. We know they're concerned, and so are we. And that's why we've devoted so much effort to this project, to streamline permitting behind the scenes, to improve customer service and to expand our capabilities down the road. It's short-term pain for long-term gain.

What city services are included in this upgrade?
The spring 2015 upgrade affects the following services:
  • Right-of-way land use: encroachments, relinquishments, vacations, dedications, utilities
  • Transportation Engineering plan review
  • Sewer use and drainage (SUDP)
  • Storm and sanitary plan review
  • Street occupancy permits
  • Sewer cutoffs and repairs
  • Address assignment
  • Floodplain
  • Capital improvement projects
  • Survey
  • Erosion control
  • Building permits
  • Fire permits 
  • Zoning permits
  • Landmark preservation approvals
  • Site development plan review
  • Contractor licensing
  • Cashiering
How can customers learn more?
Information will be posted at the Development Services website. You can also follow us on Twitter at @DenverCPD and @DenPublicWorks. Permit customers will also see signage at the permit counter prior to launch.

The Colfax Mayfair Business Improvement District has launched a streetscape design project to make the area more attractive and easier to get around.

The district is Colfax Avenue from Eudora Street to Monaco Parkway, plus the Mayfair Town Center from Colfax to 14th, Kearney to Leyden.

The "streetscape" includes sidewalks, medians and possible crosswalks. This project does not involve paving or utility work on Colfax Avenue.

What is Streetscaping?

Streetscape is a term “that refers to is used to describe the natural and built fabric of the street, and defined as the design quality of the street and its visual effect.” The concept recognizes that a street is a public place where people are able to engage in various activities. Streetscapes and their visual experience largely influences public places where people interact, and it ultimately helps define a community’s aesthetic quality, economic activity, health, and sustainability.


Illustration of Streetscape Design


A successful streetscape has multiple aspects. Because all roads have multiple users and serve many functions, each streetscape design must be context-sensitive. Transportation systems must consider the context or physical setting and use design approaches and materials that are consistent with local conditions. A streetscape needs to have boundaries to ensure safe travel for all roadway users. Signs, curbs, fences and landscaping can effectively create an inclusive, yet safe environment that provides a sense of physical comfort for diverse users and activities. The aesthetic appeal elements of beautification initiatives, attractive lighting, street furniture, clean streets, and outdoor dining contribute to a town’s sense of place. Amenities should be designed to get people out of their cars to socialize, interact with their environment, and discover other mobility options.

Thank you, in advance, for spending less than 10 minutes on less than 20 questions! Your answers will be used in the planning process for the streetscape design.

As an added bonus, the board will be meeting during the official grand opening of Quince Essential Coffee near the corner of Quince St. and Colfax Ave. Come find out about the latest about the food co-op and come support your new neighborhood coffee shop!


Consider the Co-op Rocked!

Over 2,000 folks from all over metro Denver endured scattered showers on May 17th in order to rock the food co-op.  We signed 18 new members, earned some cash at the beer gardens, and most importantly, we gathered our community together to celebrate local food.  Stay tuned for more fun events this summer!  In the meantime, check our event photos here and also the fantastic photos at From the Hip's photobooth here and here.

Site Selection Update


It would be amazing if we could announce a site today, but there is so much work behind the scenes that still needs to happen.  As of today, we have two very promising sites under consideration along the Montview corridor, plus a few other possibilities that may emerge.  We hope to make an announcement by the end of summer, but we want to make sure we do our due diligence to ensure the success of your community-owned grocery store.  In the meantime, we appreciate your continued support and enthusiasm for NCCM!

Help us recruit your friends and neighbors to join NCCM today!

Did you know if the 675 members among us recruited just 2 members each we’d have more than enough members to open our store?  Below is a letter that explains what NCCM is all about.  It’s written for you, all you need to do is forward it to a few like-minded friends.  Post it on your FB Feed, print it for your neighbors, send it via email...just share it!
