November News and Views Council Woman At-Large Debbie Ortega

Denver’s Busiest Parks to Get More Rest Several of Denver’s largest and most used parks will continue to get rest periods during the busiest times of year. The city’s Park Rest Period initiative protects parks and maintains a balance between recreational use and public events. In 2017, Denver’s Parks and Rec instituted a trial program wherein public event permits were restricted in the city’s six busiest parks. During rest periods a park cannot be permitted for a public event. The rest periods, occurring between April 1st and October 31st, ranged from two to four weekends per month, depending on the specific needs of the park.  Each year, the Denver Parks and Recreation Permit Office determines the exact rest dates after historical events are booked, but prior to the permit opening date in early November. These dates are published online with the Office of Special Events. If you have any concerns or comments please email Park.Permits@denvergov.org.

Final Rules Governing Marijuana Designated Consumption Areas

The final rules incorporate the significant and major protections for residential neighborhoods which INC supported..  It should be noted that the final rules eliminated the requirement of a ventilation plan for vaping.  The rules also include a provision for de-licensing which would allow for a liquor licensed establishment to designate a social consumption area in a liquor licensed establishment provided that  alcohol is not being served.
