When we are remembered at the end of our lives, what do we want people to say? I think about this quite a bit and have interested to hear what others think. Early in my life I wanted to make a ton of money and was focused on being a success in the business world. As I've gotten older, I have realized that family and leaving an appropriate legacy are what matter most to me. I think it is so...
When we are remembered at the end of our lives, what do we want people to say? I think about this quite a bit and have interested to hear what others think. Early in my life I wanted to make a ton of money and was focused on being a success in the business world. As I've gotten older, I have realized that family and leaving an appropriate legacy are what matter most to me. I think it is so important to raise up great children that become productive members of society. The best way to raise children is by example. The way that we live as parents is likely what they will become. I am convinced that philanthropy and helping others is the key to living a successful life.
I am Ryan Van Wagenen and originally from Salt Lake City, Utah and now spend a great deal of time in Denver, Colorado. I have lived my whole life in Utah and Colorado and love the people in these regions.

Fatal crashes may have one cause or multiple contributing factors. The number of drivers in Colorado involved in deadly accidents while using alcohol or drugs has steadily increased in recent years. Even so, careless/inattentive driving is the leading contributing factor among drivers in fatal crashes.
Recognizing the growing problem of distracted driving, federal transportation researchers in 2012 started categorizing Careless/Inattentive Driving as a separate contributing factor.

Denver's 2017 IMAGINE 2020 survey revealed that Denver residents are hungry for more arts, culture and creativity in their daily lives. Regrettably too many residents still face barriers that prevent them from participating as much as they would like. In a fast-growing city like ours, it is increasingly difficult to learn about all the different offerings across the city and satisfy higher expectations for access, inclusion, and relevance. How can your organization address these findings, and more importantly, how can you prepare for the future? Join Corona Insights and leaders across arts, culture and creative organizations to take a deeper dive into the survey findings and embrace a collective call to action.

STAY IN THE KNOW - please join us at the PCD Committee meeting THURSDAY (1/11). Among the agenda items is the proposed rezoning of the block 42nd to 43rd, Jason to Kalamath. The developer held an informational meeting this past weekend and will be at the PCD meeting Thursday to answer your questions. Some highlights from the meeting (provided by the developer): *Traffic – Concern for large volume of cars and trips through the smaller neighborhood streets with the large scale development that is being proposed in the area. Attendees wanted to understand the overall proposed number of potential units and the performance of all of the streets based on projected trip counts. Several recommendations for traffic lights, stop signs and speed bumps. Many described the issues of Lipan street and the limited number of streets that are connected due to 38th Ave on the south and I-70 on the north. Discussed parking issues and strategies around how to “nudge” people to rely less on the automobile and more on mass transit. Host encouraged the community to make their voices heard at the Next Steps meetings that will be held later this year and to engage with the SUNI RNO meetings and Councilman Espinoza office. *Affordability – Host described future plans from discussions with DHA on the redevelopment of the Quigg Newton site into a higher density neighborhood to serve its population. One of the stated goals of the Blueprint Denver plan is to promote investment in the neighborhoods surrounding DHA properties. Neighbors expressed a concern for being priced out of their area by increased property taxes, lack of affordable or low income units available in new developments and that existing tenants would be priced out by market forces. Host conceded that this is an issue facing the entire community and noted that increased density does help to create that affordability as there is an economy of scale in the construction and overall yield of projects. Applicant is willing to include (10% affordable housing) in future 8 story development. *Scale – A few neighbors described the concern for scale with adjacent properties and developments that have occurred. Host sited that the Kalamath site is currently a vacant parking lot and that the request for a 3 story limit was to provide a transition from the 2-3 story product that is redeveloping on the west side. The host also described that the topography of this site allows the development to be scaled to the adjacent property and that properties along Jason have begun rezoning to the 8 story limit. Niles with the SUNI RNO spoke on behalf of their organization and discussed an MOU that could potentially be put in place. Host will follow up and will be attending the next scheduled meeting in January. Andrew Webb with the City of Denver Planning department also attended and provided some clarifications on points concerning zoning procedures and confirmation of the public planning steps that have been taken for the area. www.facebook.com/events/1985690625043232
