WeCAN MEMBER VOTE: Proposed updates to the WeCAN Bylaws

The WeCAN Board of Directors has been volunteering their time to get the West Colfax Association of Neighbors Bylaws updated. The core change to the bylaws is to be more inclusive by enabling online voting. We believe this will allow us to get more input and participation from our members when important issues come up in West Colfax. We realize that many residents and business owners are too busy to attend general meetings, but their input is nevertheless very important to us.  In addition, several other changes have been made such as revising our purpose, removing unneeded language, and further defining voting requirements.

Got a green thumb? On Saturday, May 5, Denver...

Got a green thumb? On Saturday, May 5, Denver residents can take advantage of one day to get two great products for their gardens! Denver Public Works will hold its annual Mulch Giveaway and Compost Sale from 8:00am to 2:00pm. Denver residents can load up on free mulch and buy compost at a significantly discounted price, while supplies last at Havana Nursery (10450 Smith Road). Pre-bagged compost will be sold at a reduced price of $3.75 per 1.25 cubic foot bag (9 gallon), or in bulk, at $35 per cubic yard at the Havana Nursery location only. Limit 20 bags or three cubic yards of compost per vehicle. Dig-your-own free mulch will be available at the following locations: Havana Nursery (10450 Smith Rd., just south of I-70 on Havana St.), free loader service into trucks and trailers available at this site only Veterans Park (Iowa Ave. & Vine St.) Bear Creek Park (South of Dartmouth Ave. on Raleigh St.) Sloan’s Lake Park (Sheridan Blvd. & 17th Ave.) Fred Thomas Park (Syracuse St. & 23rd Ave.) Event Reminders Denver residents must bring their own pitchforks or shovels, as well as bags or containers for loading mulch and a tarp to cover trucks or trailers. Commercial vehicles are prohibited from taking or selling mulch or compost from this event. Event is open to Denver residents only. Compost is a nutrient-rich soil made from decomposed organic material. When added to soil, it helps plants thrive while reducing water and fertilizer needs! Mulch can be used to control weeds, retain soil moisture and protect shallow-rooted plants. The free mulch offered at this event was made from ground-up trees collected through Denver’s Treecycle program earlier this year.

A very thoughtful piece about a plan that could effect Colorado's taxpayers now and in the future.

    Why doesn't the Winter Olympics exploratory committee comply with the Sunshine Law? - Colorado Freedom of Information Coalition
    The city says the Denver Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Exploratory Committee, formed by Mayor Michael Hancock, is not bound by the Colorado Open Meetings Law and, therefore, it can meet however it sees fit. But there is a solid legal argument that the state's open meetings law indeed does apply to the Winter Olympics exploratory committee.

Sloan's Lake Neighborhood Association shared ...

    Proposed mixed-use development garners mixed reviews from neighbors - BusinessDen
    A Denver-based developer wants to build a mixed-use project topping out at 16 stories at the southeast corner of Sloan's Lake Park, but two neighborhood groups aren't on board with the plans. Zocalo Community Development plans to construct more than 300 residential units, about half of which would be designated as affordable housing, on the parking lot along Newton Street between 16th and 17th avenues.
