With the hopes of increasing public safety, rejuvenating public spaces, inspiring innovating thinking and fostering community interaction, the eight projects cover a big footprint across Denver. From South Yuma to Commons Park and east along Colfax Avenue, these projects will be highly visible and sometimes interactive, to encourage even more engagement with the public. Walk Denver: on various sites along Colfax Avenue, Walk Denver will work together with community members who have been impacted by traffic deaths, advocacy groups and artists to instigate dialogue about the safety of pedestrians in Denver. Well-known Denver street artist Pat Milbery will paint a large-scale mural to envision the goals of Vision Zero and will work with East High School students to create stencils and street signs for areas that community members feel need improvement. https://303magazine.com/2018/01/new-public-art-denver-2018/

    Denver council members pool leftover office budgets to provide lawyers for some renters facing eviction
    Ten Denver City Council members on Thursday took the unusual step of pooling money to help launch a new housing program - one that had faced resistance from Mayor Michael Hancock. The council members say they will use the $123,600 raised to work with a nonprofit called Colorado Legal Services to start a pilot program providing lawyers for low-income renters to fight evictions.
