Annual Community Cleanup!

Saturday, May 9th, 2015

9:00 AM - 2:00 PM


 

On Saturday, May 9, 2015, the City of Denver is sponsoring "The Great Denver Cleanup Day". This is a ONE DAY a year event where Denver Residents will be able dispose of trash, as there will be drop off locations across Denver for trash and yard debris for this day ONLY! Our drop-off site is Ashley Elementary located at Montview and Syracuse Street!

Our focus in East Colfax/East Montclair neighborhood is to clean up our alleyways and streets. It is a great way for neighbors to come together to clean up leaves & trash, thus making our alleys  and streets look cleaner and be safer. It is a "block by block" effort, so pass the word to your neighbors. If you do not participate, please clean the area behind your property.

Our neighbor Roxie McKinster has written up a "Save The Date" reminder that you can print out and canvas to the neighbors on your block!

Election Day is May 5
Dear Friends,

Tuesday marks Election Day and citizens across Denver will exercise one of the most fundamental rights in America as they cast their vote in the city’s municipal elections. On the ballot this year are candidates for mayor, city council, auditor and clerk and recorder. This is the first municipal election cycle where all eligible voters should receive mail in ballots. As you’ve probably seen in local media outlets, a misprint on many ballots states that ballots should be returned by June 2nd. Election Day is May 5th and ballots need to be returned no later than 7 pm on Tuesday.

There are a number of ballot drop-off locations and voter service centers throughout Denver. Click here to find where you can return your ballot. You can also affix a first class stamp and mail back your ballot. Denver Elections does recommend dropping the ballot in the mail no later than Friday, May 1st to ensure ballots arrive through the mail on time.

This will be the first municipal election following the redistricting process City Council conducted back in 2011. At least once every ten years, the Denver City Council must redraw its district boundaries, based on latest U.S. Census data. You can click here to learn about Denver’s process. Though my district remains mostly the same there will be some changes. All of what was my district north of Colfax will be been absorbed into the new District 8 (to be represented by Councilman Chris Herndon) and I will represent the entire neighborhood of Bellevue-Hale. Additionally, I will gain parts of Washington-Virginia Vale in the southern part of my district. You can click here to see a map of the new districts.

The deadline to drop off your ballot is 7:00 pm on Tuesday May, 5th. Make your voice heard by voting in this year’s election.

 

Mayfair's Merritt Pullam

Merritt Pullam, Mayfair’s new neighborhood president, has lived in the neighborhood for almost 10 years with his wife Robin, their two kids, and their two dogs. Merritt loves to spend time with his family, golfing, fishing and enjoying the outdoors. Merritt has been a high school football coach for almost 20 years in California and Colorado, most recently 6 years with Manual High School in DPS. As his children get older, he looks forward to being more involved with youth sports in the area. 

He is a real estate agent with Keller Williams Integrity Group which has afforded him the opportunity to be a work-at-home dad and spend more time with his family. Taking his kids for walks to watch the construction equipment at work around the neighborhood, and seeing his son play with his trucks in front of the new houses being built, sparked his interest in zoning and the changes that are happening within the neighborhood. Merritt got involved with Mayfair Neighbors, Inc. last year as a way to give back to the community and to connect with more of his neighbors.

He is very interested in community events where neighbors meet and build relationships while sharing information about the local community. In the coming year, he looks forward to having guest speakers at each of the Mayfair board meetings to connect even further with the community. He is also excited about the upcoming MNI events at Mayfair Park and the surrounding supporting businesses. He believes you can learn so much more about your neighbors by listening to them.
 
 

District 5 Paving Maps

As the weather warms paving operations will ramp up in District 5. Quebec Street will see much needed street repairs between Severn Dr. and 23rd Ave and Monaco Street Pkwy will also see paving work between Alameda Ave and 6th Ave Pkwy. Additionally, select alleys will be paved as part of the unimproved alley paving program. See the map below for areas that will see paving in the next two years.

 
 

High LIne Canal Crossing at Parker and Mississippi

As many of you know, the pedestrian/bike crossing on the High Line Canal Trail at Parker and Mississippi is scary at best. In 2014 a massive study was conducted of all the crossings along the length of the trail. The crossings were then ranked to find those most urgently in need of modification, and not surprisingly, the Parker and Mississippi crossing topped the list. DRCOG (Denver Regional Council of Governments) has agreed the situation needs to be fixed, and has earmarked matching funds from their Transportation Improvement Program to underground the crossing. When completed, pedestrians and bikes will be able to cross below Parker Road without worrying about car traffic. Updates on the project will be shared as soon as information is available.

Denver Police Department

Updates and News




 


The Denver Police Department District 2's Bi-Monthly Community Advisory Board (2CAB) meeting was held on Wednesday, April 29, 2015. The meeting had one of the largest turn outs in meeting history due to the recent gang violence within District 2 in northeast Denver neighborhoods.

Commander Michael Calo led the meeting which included representatives from Denver's Combined Communications Center (Denver 911), The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, K-9 Handlers and their K-9's  from the ATF and US Marshals Service.

The meeting also engaged the community for help in the recent spike in Gang Violence with many community leaders present, including Reverend Leon Kelly who spoke to the community about his thoughts on what is causing the violence and how YOU can help!

The Denver Post had a write-up that covered the recent gang violence and the meeting itself.

CITIZENS APPRECIATE POLICE

Last week, three Denver Police Officers received the Citizens Appreciate Police (CAP) Award for going above and beyond to help member...s of our community.

Formed in 1978, CAP is a non-profit organization that recognizes Denver Police Officers who serve the public outside their regular call of duty.


COMMANDER MIKE CALO

Last year, one of our Public Safety Cadets received the unfortunate news that his brother had died. The cadet and his other brother, who both lived in Denver at the time, needed to get back to Hawaii to be with their family. Denver Police District 2 Commander Calo and his wife, who works for an airline, provided the two young men with passes to get home. When the boys were set to return, they kept getting bumped because they were flying standby and not with an airline employee for family member of one. Knowing that both young men needed to get back to Denver for school and work, Commander Calo hopped a plane to Hawaii, explained that these young men were his family, and ensured that they were able to get back to Denver without any further issue.


OFFICER KATHERINE URBINA

On July 18, 2014, Denver Police District 4 Officer Urbina responded to a possible domestic violence call. The resident of the home was an elderly gentleman with severe health issues. The officer found him in bed, with a full catheter; she immediately had him transported for medical attention, paid for his medication, and his groceries. She then assisted the gentleman with a neighborhood dispute, after a neighbor threatened to harm his property while he was on vacation. Officer Urbina watched the home on her own time, ensuring the safety of their property, and allowing the gentlemen to enjoy his vacation.


OFFICER ERIC CARDENAS (not pictured)

On July 3, 2014, a gentleman arrived at DIA intoxicated. He lost his wallet, and was denied access through security onto his flight. The gentleman was transported to detox, and spent the night there. Officer Cardenas called the man’s mother, keeping her apprised of her son’s situation. The next day, Officer Cardenas met the man at the airport, and told him that he made arrangements for him to be able to board his flight home. The officer than took the man out to breakfast as he waited to board his flight, since he was still sans his wallet. Both the man, and his mother were beyond grateful for Officer Cardenas’ kindness.

THE DANGERS OF E-DATING ARE LEGIT

Thursday morning, April 23, 2015,
Denver Police District 2 officers responded to the report of an armed robbery in the 1500 block of Valentia Street. The victim had been assaulted with a firearm, and had cuts on his head. The victim explained that he met the female suspect on LiveLinks, and took her back to his house. The female left, and returned later with a ma...le suspect. The male suspect assaulted the victim with a pistol, and forced him downstairs. While the victim was downstairs, the suspects went through his house, taking items.

Seriously, friends, be very cautious about who you bring into your home. And in case you missed it, here are so more safety tips for online daters…

• Before you meet in person, don’t give up too much personal information. Keep your address, and other specifics private, until you are sure the person is who they say they are, and are trustworthy.

• When you do meet, meet in a public place, with plenty of eye witnesses, just in case things go south.

• Let your friends and family know where you’ll be, and who you’re meeting.

• Drive yourself to and from your date, so you can control when you decide to go home.

• Stay sober. Don’t impair your judgment on the first date.

Compost is only available at the Havana Nursery site while supplies last on Saturday, May 2nd. Loader service into trucks and trailers will be available for large loads of compost purchased. There are limits of 20 bags or 3 cubic yards of compost per vehicle.

Teen Community Emergency Response and Recovery Training
(Teen CERT)
Denver’s Disaster Ready Club
 
As a teen, there are probably a lot of things you are told you can’t do. But there is one very important thing you can do: Learn to protect yourself, your family and you friends in case of a disaster. The Denver Disaster Ready Club (DRC) training teaches you about the potential disasters that could affect the Denver Metro area and how to safely and responsibly respond to and recover from them. It is a national program of volunteers trained in disaster preparedness and emergency response. Volunteers come from all ages and all walks of life, including teenagers like you!
What You Learn: It takes about 24 hours to complete the training. However, the critical skills you learn will last your entire life. During the training you learn to:
·         Extinguish small fires
·         Conduct light search and rescue
·         Assist those who are injured
·         Set up medical treatment areas
·         Assist emergency responders
·         Identify and anticipate hazards
·         Reduce fire hazards in the home and workplace
·         Help reduce survivor stress
·         And participate in a final disaster exercise 
Why:  When an emergency/disaster hits, we can’t always depend on professional responders to be immediately available.  We would like to have our communities trained to help within their own communities. 
Who: This training is open teen’s ages 14 – 18 years of age. We will accept up to 40 participants for this program.  No youth under 14 years of age. Non Denver residents are welcome.
When: Class will be held: July14, 15 and 16, 2015 from 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
(You must attend all class sessions (3 Days) and you will receive a certificate for 24 hours of community service.)
Where: Class will be held at La Alma Recreation Center,1325 W. 11th Ave. , Denver 80204
How much: The training is provided at NO COST to participants.

 “The Auditor is the eyes and ears of the citizens, the keeper of the public trust, and the monitor of the public purse.”

Auditor Gallagher

 

Dear Friends,

 
                  Last week I released our White Paper on the cost of the South Terminal Redevelopment Program and its expansion way over budget.  The figures provided by DIA, itself, showed that the project is now over $721,000,000.00 and continues to grow.  Sadly, rather than accept the fact that this project is 42% over budget, DIA chooses to ignore the facts.  I only hope that the powers that be at DIA eventually wake up.  Our White Paper will make it more difficult for them to continue down their path of denial.
                  I have been working very hard to achieve a long standing goal of the Auditor’s Office.  The Colorado House of Representatives have this week passed legislation which will allow local audit shops to audit Human Services agencies.  This legislation will allow the Denver Auditor’s Office finally to investigate and audit the activities of Denver Human Services, which has a long record of problems.  The bill is currently in the Senate and I am hopeful that it will pass by the end of this session of the Colorado Legislature.
                  The first of next week I will be in San Diego giving a speech to the Association of Local Government Audits about the Denver Audit Model.  My presentation will cover the changes made here in Denver during my term as Auditor that have greatly increased the effectiveness of the Denver Auditor’s Office.  At the conference, I will also be accepting our third Knighton Award for auditing excellence.
                  Finally, I would like to remind everyone that Election Day is Tuesday, May 5th.  Please remember to exercise your most basic right and vote.  It is crucial that our voice be heard!



Dennis

Reception & Commemorative Event: May 7, 5-7:30 pm

The Art That Won The War is an exhibit curated by Celia Miller-Morrissey, the Donna Moravec Gallery Director. This exhibit will include an extensive visual tribute to the history of Lowry and the role it played in World War II. Additionally, the exhibit will include the works of CCA students who are themselves WWII veterans, propaganda posters, uniforms, visual and audio elements, and a rare collection of WWII artifacts on loan from the Pueblo Weisbrod Aviation Museum.

The Reception, on Thursday May 7th, 5-7:30pm, will feature WWII reenactors dressed in authentic uniform, a convoy of WWII vehicles and equipment on display, music, and a drawing to win tickets to the biggest 1940s event in Colorado, the 1940s Ball at the Denver Airport. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the general public. Families are welcome!

Celebrate walkability May 16 at Bee JP!

Explore the Jefferson Park/Sloan's Lake neighborhoods on foot

Saturday, May 16, will be a big day in the Jefferson Park/Sloan’s Lake neighborhoods. “Bee JP” is a first-time event that will showcase community activities in this thriving area and highlight outcomes of WalkDenver's Great Paths  initiative, aimed at promoting neighborhood amenities and walking through quick, low-cost pedestrian improvements.  The event will also unofficially kick off the season of the new “JEFFERSON PARK FARM & FLEA—at the Boulevard” a craft, vintage and farmers market that will be starting in August.
 
Come see what all the buzz is about and join us at 25th Avenue between Federal Blvd and Elliot from 9am to 2 pm on Saturday, May 16.  The day includes:

  • Plant/Seedling sale and Craft/Vintage market as a kick-off for the Jefferson Park Farm & Flea. The “JP Farm & Flea” will be a neighborhood-focused art and farmers market from the company that organizes the Horseshoe Craft and Flea Market.
  • “Guerilla” marketing effort to promote walkability through pedestrian wayfinding signs and sidewalk art
  • Neighborhood tours with Walk2Connect - a shorter "stroll" at 1:30, and a longer "ramble" at 2:30
  • Community cleanup staged in Jefferson Park with Jefferson Park United Neighbors
  • Collection of historic neighborhood photos for the Historic Denver digital neighborhood photo album.

WalkDenver needs volunteers to help out the day of the event.  Click here to learn more and sign up for a volunteer shift. For more information about the event, visit the event page on facebook.
