Sidewalks Covered with Snow



We have notified the Advenir Apartment located at 8000 East 12th Avenue about the condition of their sidewalks on East 12th Avenue between Trenton Street and Valentia Street. They have agreed to keep up their sidewalks and clear them of snow and ice. Unfortunately since this was not done in the last few weeks it will take some time to remove the ice buildup that currently exists.

As a reminder all residential sidewalks must be cleared of snow/ice within 24 hours of the last snowfall. For commercial properties including apartments they have 4 hours to clear their sidewalks after the last snowfall per Denver City Ordinance.

It is important that we as residents and as commercial business owners clear our sidewalks in order for all of us to be able to safely use them including the elderly and disabled. Please assist your neighbors that are elderly and have disabilities clear their sidewalks.

The City can assess a fine between $150. - $999. for not clearing sidewalks in the given timeframes above. Normally the City will give a warning first before proceeding to a nuisance abatement and fine.

To report sidewalks that have not been cleared you can use the Pocket Gov website HERE!

 



Snow Buddies Program!


 

Volunteers of America can help those 60 and older in Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas and Jefferson counties with shoveling snow. We make a match between a client and a volunteer who live within two miles of each other. Then, when there is a snowfall of 2 or more inches, we ask the volunteers to shovel the sidewalk and walkway for their assigned senior within 24 hours. This program was initiated to keep seniors safe from falls on snow or ice during the winter. The program also keeps seniors from accruing city or county fines for not being able to shovel their snow from the sidewalks.

1997 United States Mint
National Law Enforcement Memorial Commemorative Coin






 

1997 National Law Enforcement Memorial Commemorative Coin - Released on September 22, 1997, this coin commemorated the sacrifices of law enforcement officers and their families in preserving public safety. The design on the obverse was inspired by a photograph of United States Park Police officers Robert Chelsey and Kelcy Stefansson at the Memorial. The reverse featured a design of a silver sculpture of the Memorial's emblem; a shield and a rose. The universal shield represents all law enforcement officers and the rose represents the officers' sacrifice and dedication.

 



SCAM ALERT: DENVER POLICE FALLEN OFFICERS MEMORIAL


'SCAM ALERT: FALLEN OFFICERS MEMORIAL

Friends, it has recently come to our attention that people have received phone calls from others claiming to be collecting donations in order to repair the Denver Police Fallen Officers Memorial. This is a SCAM! The memorial is owned by the Denver Police Officers' Foundation, and they do not solicit money. If you get a similar phone call, do not provide the caller with any personal information, and call the police immediately.'

LIGHTING: A proven deterrent to burglar attacks at night is lighting. Strategically placed lights in hallways, basement areas, passageways, and garage areas can be useful. Burglars seek unlighted areas to affect their entry.
• Use interior light timers to establish a pattern of occupancy
• Exterior lighting should allow 100- feet of visibility
• Use good lighting along the pathway and at your door
• Use light timers or photo-cells to turn on/off lights automatica
lly
• Use infra-red motion sensor lights on the rear of single family homes
• Turn off exterior lights during the day.
If you have exterior lighting use it, turn on your porch lights and or spot lights and or lighting attached to the building and/or poles adjacent to the building. If the bulbs are burned out replace them. Illuminating the area prevents the Burglar(s) from hiding and allows the Police Officer(s) to see the building while doing their rounds and/or additional patrols at night

Partners Announce Group Violence Reduction Program 

 

DENVER, CO – Thursday, March 5, 2015 – Denver’s Police Department, Department of Public Safety, District Attorney’s Office, City Attorney’s Office, United States Attorney’s Office, Departments of Probation, State Department of Correction’s Parole Division and community partners announce a program to reduce group violence in Denver. Group Violence Intervention (GVI), similar to the previous Cease Fire program, identifies groups who are committing violent crimes and provides both services and consequences to those involved.

 

On Wednesday, March 4, 2015, these individuals were called to a meeting with law enforcement, prosecution, community stakeholders, and faith based members. At this meeting, they received a three pronged message about the program; community concern, available resources, and law enforcement involvement.

The primary goal of this effort is to connect people with resources. After hearing stories from loved ones about what gang violence does to families and stories of recovered former members, attendees were provided with a number to the Department of Safety’s Gang Reduction Initiative resource office where they can receive job information, mental health and substance abuse services, help with housing, and other assistance they may need.

 

The goal of the law enforcement component of the program is to create a group dynamic for self-control. Members were clearly informed that if a violent crime is committed, law enforcement and city partners will bring their full resources and attention on them and their known associates and they will face the consequences of any illegal activity. The pledge by committed law enforcement partners is to use every legal tool available to address continued criminality

 

Under GVI, a group of stakeholders from law enforcement and prosecution agencies conducted in-depth research and analysis to identify individuals and groups who are committing violent crimes in Denver. It is important to recognize that all gangs are groups, but not all groups are gangs. Although there are self-identified gangs in the metro area, not all violent group activity is connected to an identified gang. GVI identifies core groups responsible for violence and related crimes regardless of gang affiliation or identification.

 

The initial rollout of GVI is in Denver Police District Two. After its initial implementation in District Two, the GVI program will expand citywide.

 

The Gang Reduction Initiative of Denver (GRID) GVI project is one of many law enforcement strategies devised to address gang and gun crime, and is a key component of the US Department of Justice Project Safe Neighborhood Grant awarded to Denver in 2014. Additional components of this grant combine technology-based strategies including ShotSpotter and the use of National Integrated Ballistic Information Network (NIBIN) technology through the Crime Gun Intelligence Center.

NIBIN is a law enforcement tool used to identify, investigate and prosecute gun crime “shooters,” through ballistics imaging.

ShotSpotter technology detects and locates gunfire within the city. The system uses a network of acoustic sensors to detect when a gun is fired and then precisely and quickly pinpoints the location of the gunfire. In less than a minute, officers and 911 dispatchers are notified of gunfire incidents, which help speed police response. This system has the potential to save lives, increase weapons-related arrests, and enhance the safety of Denver neighborhoods.

 

In addition to the Project Safe Neighborhood Grant, Denver’s Department of Public Safety has also received a Juvenile Justice Delinquency and Prevention grant for the Gang Reduction Intervention of Denver (GRID). This grant provides funding for 24 programs that address gang violence, GVI being one of the twenty-four. GRID’s goal is to reduce violent gang crime and increase positive behavior change in those receiving services through prevention, intervention and enforcement.
 



Neighborhood Crime Last Week




 


 


 

Tuesday, February 24, 2015, Denver Police District 2 officers responded to the 7500 block of E. Colfax on a dispute over a parking space. This victim was attempting to park his vehicle, when the suspect pulled up directly behind him and refused to leave. The victim’s passenger got out of the vehicle, and approached the suspect’s vehicle to let him know they were trying to park. The suspect continued to refuse to move, and pulled out a handgun, threatening the victims. The suspect then fled out eastbound on E. Colfax Avenue. The suspect’s vehicle was registered to a location in Aurora. Gang Unit and District 2 SCAT officers went to check the address, and saw the suspect vehicle at the intersection of 19th and Kenton. The officers conducted a felony stop, and arrested 32 year-old Roger Randolph. Additionally, officers also recovered a gun.
 


 



Nuisance Abatement - 1420 N. Xenia St., Apt. ###
 

On February 12, 2015, members from the Denver Police Department’s Metro/SWAT and the District Two Narcotics team were executing a search warrant at 1420 N. Xenia Street, Apt. ###. Detectives observed a individual go inside the residence prior to executing the warrant. Officers contacted that party and discovered that they were in possession of suspected crack cocaine. Officers contacted the renter inside the residence and they admitted that they had sold the suspected crack cocaine to the other party. The renter was identified as NAME WITHHELD and was taken into custody. A search of the residence revealed an Ajax can with a false bottom. There was nothing inside. The suspected crack cocaine was analyzed by a chemist with the Denver Police Crime Laboratory and it tested positive for Cocaine HCL in a total weight of 0.271 grams.

WalkDenver E-News

Mayor's Pedestrian Advisory Committee is a WalkDenver Success!

 
At the beginning of 2014 WalkDenver identified the formation of a Pedestrian Advisory Committee and the creation of a new "Denver Moves Pedestrians" Plan as key goals for the year.  After many meetings with public officials and city staff, and a petition drive that gathered over 1,000 signatures in support of the effort, WalkDenver is thrilled to announce that Mayor Hancock has officially formed the Mayor's Pedestrian Advisory Committee (MPAC). A key focus area for the committee will be assisting the city in the creation of the Denver Moves Pedestrian Plan.  Congratulations to all the Walk Denver board members and volunteers who worked on these efforts!  
 
A call to citizens interested in participating on the committee went out in December 2014 and the city received 90 applications.  This reflects the growing level of interest and importance walkability has among the citizens of Denver.  The people of Denver want a walkable city! In January 2015 Mayor Hancock appointed 19 citizens to the committee, which held its first meeting in February.
 
The formation of MPAC is a great success for Walk Denver and an important sign that Mayor Hancock supports the goal of making Denver a truly multi-modal city, accessible to all its residents including the estimated 30% who do not drive cars.  Modeled after the Mayor's Bicycle Advisory Committee, MPAC will hold monthly meetings and advise the Mayor, City Council, and city staff on best practices for pedestrian infrastructure, policies, and programs.   A regular schedule has not yet been established for the committee but the next meeting will occur on Wednesday, March 11th at 7:30am.  All meetings will be open to the public.
 
Walk Denver would like to thank Mayor Hancock and the Departments of Public Works and Community Planning and Development for their support in the formation of the new advisory committee and for starting the effort to create the Denver Moves Pedestrian Plan.  Walk Denver looks forward to working closely with the new committee to build a better, healthier, more inclusive Denver.  Please join us in congratulating the inaugural members of MPAC, listed below.

Denver Proposes Plant Limits for Non-licensed Grows


City and County of Denver

Marijuana Policy
Dan Rowland, Communications Advisor
Dan.Rowland@DenverGov.Org
O: 720.865.2686
 

DENVER – The City and County of Denver today moved to make it unlawful to cultivate more than 36 marijuana plants on any non-residential zone lot in the city, except in a licensed marijuana cultivation facility.
 
The proposed change will address several health and safety concerns that the large, non-licensed marijuana grow operations pose in Denver’s dense, urban environment. Unsafe conditions, such as overloaded electrical systems, hazardous structural features and blocked egresses, are prevalent in these facilities, as are the improper use of pesticides, improper waste disposal and uncontrolled odor mitigation.
 
Additionally, the large amounts of untracked, non-licensed marijuana in these facilities provide opportunities for crime and diversion into the black market.
 
“After careful consideration, we have concluded that this is a necessary change to protect the health and safety of Denver residents,” said Ashley Kilroy, the city’s Executive Director of Marijuana Policy. “While the city previously took action to limit the number of plants in a residential dwelling to 12, this ordinance applies a limitation to the number of plants that can be grown outside of a residential dwelling unit, unless a marijuana business license is obtained.”
 
The proposed amendment to the Denver Revised Municipal Code does not affect the 12-plant limit already in place for residential dwelling units.
 
“This is a thoughtful modification that protects employees, neighbors, inspectors and first responders alike while respecting the will of the voters and their support of Amendment 64,” Kilroy said.
 
The proposed change was developed after considerable diligence by Denver safety officials and others, who have noted an exponential increase in the cultivation of marijuana in collective operations and other non-licensed settings. More than 60 of these locations have already been identified, including some with as many as 2,000 plants.
 
“General zoning, fire and building codes – the laws that attempt to regulate the safety of these locations – have not been sufficient in ensuring safe and compliant grow facilities,” Kilroy said. “Additionally, these non-licensed facilities undermine the stability and safety of the legal, regulated marijuana market that Colorado and Denver have worked hard to establish.”
 
Violations of the proposed code would be criminal penalties, based on the threat to the health and safety of those directly and indirectly involved with these operations. Like all other criminal violations of the DRMC, penalties for this code violation would include up to one year in jail and up to a $999 fine.
 
The proposed code change requires Denver City Council approval and will be presented for initial discussion at the Safety and Wellbeing Committee today, Tuesday, March 3, at 1:30 p.m. Public comment will be taken at the meeting.

Investigating Home-Sharing
Dear Friends,

Over the past ten months I have led a task force charged with investigating the Sharing Economy. To date we have primarily focused on home-sharing (think Airbnb, VRBO, and Homeaway.com). This past Monday the task force (click here for more info) met to discuss draft language for a potential home-sharing ordinance (found here). What I had learned prior to this meeting was if we are going to regulate them there would need to be not only a zoning change, but perhaps regulations from Excise and License, and discussions about possible lodging taxes.

The intention of the draft is as a “straw man”, an opportunity to talk with neighborhoods about what an ordinance might look like and get their feedback on it.

Our discussion on Monday was frank and productive. Our Community Planning and Development Department (CPD) presented to the task force that the zoning code changes would fit best in the Home Occupations section. This approach could ensure that hosts only rent out their primary residence (as you can’t have a home occupation outside your home) and responds to the feedback I’ve received from residents. This would also prevent investors from buying up our much needed affordable housing and converting these units from long-term rentals to short-term rentals.

Amie Mayhew, President and CEO of the Colorado Hotel and Lodging Association, spoke at the task force and said her members approve of regulating it and that we should get it done soon, and not make regulations so onerous that few would apply for a permit. I plan to shop these straw-man ordinances around to the stakeholders and neighborhoods for feedback. Stay tuned!

 

What I've learned about Denver

In my February newsletter I pointed out some the great things happening in our city and state that have given Denver and Colorado national recognition. This month I am going to continue this by sharing some more things I’ve learned about Denver over the past month.
.
 

New Office Hours Location

I host regular “Office Hours” in my district the first three Thursdays of each month from 10 am – 12 pm. These are good opportunities for citizens to meet me in the district and discuss any concerns you may have. I’m excited to announce, starting in March, I will be hosting my Office Hours in a new location the second Thursday of each month. Starting March 12, I will be at Blossoms Restaurant, located at 595 S. Clinton St. in the Centerpoint Community Center at Windsor Gardens. I’m excited to take my Office Hours to Windsor Gardens and I know Blossoms Restaurant will provide a great venue for connecting with the community.

The locations for the first and third Thursday Office Hours will remain the same. Times for all three events are 10 am – 12 pm.

  • First Thursday: Café Steep, 4100 E 8th Ave
  • Second Thursday: Blossoms Restaurant, 595 S. Clinton St
  • Third Thursday: Einstein’s Café, Lowry Towne Center

No appointment necessary.  Just drop in to chat if you like.

 
 

ADA Ramps Coming to District 5 in 2015

Denver Public Works will have contracted crews installing ADA pedestrian ramps in District 5 this year, primarily in the East Montclair and Montclair neighborhoods. ADA ramps will be installed in some parts of the Windsor Gardens neighborhood as well. It is estimated that most of the ADA ramp work will take place in the early fall.

According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), newly constructed or altered streets must contain curb ramps to make the public right-of-way accessible to people with disabilities. To comply with these federal requirements, Denver is greatly expanding ADA pedestrian ramp construction citywide and installing pedestrian ramps in all locations where Denver Public Works is planning future street work. Building ramps before street paving prevents new street work from being damaged by the ramp installation.

Weather and other factors can impact the installation schedule. For more information about the ADA ramp construction program schedule, what to expect when a ramp is being built on your street or other helpful information, go to www.denvergov.org/ADAramps.
 

Third Annual Preschool Showcase

It’s not too soon to be thinking about preschool for the next school year. Denver families can find out how to access tuition support and meet more than 150 quality-rated preschools in the Denver area all in one place during the third annual Preschool Showcase presented by the Denver Preschool Program (DPP).

The FREE event runs from 9 am - 3 pm, Saturday, March 7, 2015, at The Westin Downtown Hotel, located at 16th & Lawrence Street. In addition to the preschool programs, the Showcase will feature:
  • Free light refreshments
  • Family-friendly activities and entertainment
  • Free dental screenings
  • Online Preschool Locator demonstrations
  • Spanish translators on site
  • Photo opportunities with PBS characters Clifford and Curious George

A Message from Councilman Herndon
Councilman Herndon

with Northeast Denver Leadership Week Alumni at Sims Fayola International Academy

In February, my wife Genia and I joined our neighbors for a Neighborhood Watch start-up meeting. Officer Brandi Thomas, one of the Community Resource Officers in Police District 5, did a fantastic job of facilitating the meeting and answering neighbors' questions. Neighborhood Watch is one way to assist Denver Police in making neighborhoods safer and getting to know your neighbors in the process. I encourage neighbors across the district to participate in the program. More

Library's Winter of Reading Program

What is the best thing to do during the long cold winter months? If you ask the Denver Public Library, they'll tell you it's reading, of course! Denver's Library team thinks that the best way to spend a cold day is curled up with a good book, listening to music and sipping from a steaming mug of tea.

 

Reading is a pleasure, but in case you need further incentive to dive into a good book, they've created a brand new adult reading program called Winter of Reading. Adults can earn prizes in exchange for reading, along with utilizing some of DPL's other offerings like genealogy resources, local music, and e-books. More
