REMINDER: The 7 Star Motel License Hearing tomorrow, November 16, 2017 at 9:00AM has been postponed. BACKGROUND: On Monday, September 25, 2017 at 10:00AM the owners and operators of the 7 Star Motel, located at 8400 East Colfax Avenue at Verbena Street were served notice by the Denver Nuisance Abatement Division of the City Attorney's Office and the Denver Police Nuisance Abatement Detectives. The first part of the notice was to be a public Show Cause hearing in front of the Department of Excise and Licensing in at the Webb Building in regards to continuing nuisances that effect the surrounding neighborhood, it's residents and business owners, including drug sales and possession by tenants and weapons charges and seizures. The city attorney’s office is actively working on a resolution. If needed, a show cause hearing in front of excise and licensing will be rescheduled in early to mid December. The solution being worked on will also potentially negate the court case. We will notify everyone of the progress and as more details can be discussed we will share with everyone. Thank you for everyone that has reached out so far, as soon as we know more we will send notice out. East Colfax Neighborhood Association

Many of you have driven by the Disabled American Veterans D.A.V. building at 8720 East Colfax Avenue and not known much about the organization. The building also houses many nonprofits including the Burma Rangers, Street Fraternity and House of Purpose Church among others. Clyde Seiler Chapter 21 was chartered in Aurora, CO in 1973. The Chapter was named in honor of Major Clyde Seiler a member of the Colorado National Guard who was killed in action on March 27, 1969 when the F-100 aircraft he was piloting was shot down over Vietnam. The Chapter operated at various locations in Aurora until 1993 when the Chapter purchased the current site at 8720 E Colfax Ave., Denver, CO. In February 2011 a fire seriously damaged the building; however, after extensive repairs and remodeling we rededicated the building in January 2012 enabling us to continue our support of DAV's mission of assisting disabled veterans and their families. The Chapter's membership is approximately 1,800 and the Chapter is supported by an active Auxiliary Unit. Chapter 21 is an active organization with many members supporting their time and efforts toward veterans activities throughout the Denver metro area. The Chapter is the third largest in state and has donated thousands of dollars to veterans and civic causes. The Chapter co-hosts the hospitality room at the annual Department Convention and has had members serving in Department positions including Commander. We host an annual Chapter picnic and Christmas parties for children and adults and the Chapter and Auxiliary support numerous programs either individually or jointly which benefit veterans. Individuals should contact the Chapter office between 12 noon and 4:00 pm weekdays to learn more about Chapter 21. http://www.davmembersportal.org/chapters/co/21/default.aspx

Charlie Chan Village

Today a great mystery was solved. For years I had been trying to track down an old East Colfax motel called Charlie Chan Village. In my mind, I saw something mythical, like Grauman's Chinese Theater. The good news is Jennifer and Bonnie at the Aurora History Museum found something about it today! The (not so bad I guess) news is that it was a laundry service...
