National Preservation Month is an annual opportunity for everyone to celebrate what they love about preservation across the country and here in Denver. Historic places and buildings don't just capture the architecture of previous eras; they also root our communities in our shared history and help create a sense of place for newcomers and longtime residents alike. Everywhere in Denver there are spots with stories to tell. Denver's Landmark Preservation team wants help capturing these places and telling their stories. Throughout the final weeks of April and all of May, Denver residents are invited to share what places matter to them by taking pictures of their favorite historic places and buildings in Denver and share them online, using the materials linked below and the hashtag #ThisPlaceMattersDenver. The pictures can be of official local landmarks or of non-designated places that mean something to individuals or the community. Selected photos will be included in a display on preservation in Denver that will be up in the Webb Municipal Building during National Preservation Month.

Highland Tavern regulars, neighbors hold vigil for slain local barkeep known for his intelligence, boisterous laugh

Denver Police Department’s District One Commander Paul Pazen attended the gathering but declined to give updates on the investigation, saying a vigil was not the right place. Instead, he invited neighbors to attend a community meeting Monday at 1311 West 46th Ave.

This article has 3 other Denver locations (Show)

On March 18, at 12:20 p.m., Kottke was walking home from a grocery store when he was shot several times near the corner of Grove Street and West 25th Avenue. He was taken to a hospital, where he died. His case is still an active investigation.

    Highland Tavern regulars, neighbors hold vigil for slain local barkeep known for his intelligence, boisterous laugh
    Brad Kottke's face was a familiar one at Highland Tavern, a neighborhood bar close to his Sloan's Lake home. Regulars never quite understood why he set aside his master's degree to work at a bar. One suspected he was inspired to pursue a free-spirited life after reading Henry David Thoreau (Kottke was a poet whose bedroom resembled a library).

DENVER PARKS ALCOHOL POLICY Denver Parks & Recreation's (DPR) alcohol policy was established in September 2007, and amended in May 2011, February 2012 and May 2012, resulting in the current policy which is overly-complicated and inconsistent. In an effort to simplify how rules and regulations are enforced at DPR facilities across the city, a revision to the DPR Alcohol Policy is being proposed and your feedback is wanted.

Denver is about to spend $290K to study flooding in Globeville. This is likely connected to the I70 widening project. Community meeting on May 9 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Stapleton Recreation Center. Come one, come all.

    Denver will spend $290,000 to study flooding in Globeville - Denverite
    It could be the first step toward significant new infrastructure spending in the residential and industrial district along the South Platte River.

STREET SWEEPING STARTS APRIL 3RD!! Last year...

STREET SWEEPING STARTS APRIL 3RD!! Last year, Denver Public Works swept enough pollutants off the streets to fill Coors Field with a pile of dirt and debris stacked almost 12 feet high! Denver’s residential street sweeping season begins Tuesday, April 3, and Denver Public Works wants to remind residents that moving their vehicle on street sweeping day is an important step in helping keep debris out of our air and water! When residents move their vehicles, crews can sweep all the way to the curb line and provide the best service possible. Residents are urged to follow the red and white signs posted on the block for street sweeping parking restrictions to avoid getting a $50 ticket. Even if it appears a sweeper has cleaned the street, it’s still important to not park during the restricted times posted, as the sweeper may need to return to the area to make another pass. Helpful ways to remember street sweeping day: Denver residents can sign up for reminders through Pocketgov, the City’s mobile web application. After creating a simple user profile, residents can receive both email and text notifications. Call 311 to request “no parking” sticker reminders for a calendar. Last year, Denver Public Works Street Maintenance crews swept 148,466 lane miles and collected 62,330 cubic yards of dirt and debris. For more information on Denver’s street sweeping program, please visit denvergov.org/streetsweeping.

    Residents are advised to pay attention to the red and white signs posted on their block for street sweeping parking restrictions, so Denver Public Works can provide the best street sweeping service possible.
