Since the beginning of 2018, DAP has received 135 calls regarding dogs left inside vehicles during extreme temperatures. Never lean an animal in a hot car. On a warm day, the temperature inside a vehicle can reach 120°F in a matter of minutes – even with the windows cracked. If you see a dog in a hot car immediately call 311 and familiarize yourself with the Good Samaritan law that provides legal immunity for people who break a car window to save an animal. More info from Denver Animal Protection.

The Landmark Preservation Commission will hold a public hearing June 19 on the historic designation application submitted for the Wellshire Park Cottage, a French Eclectic style house built in 1926. The house is located at 2900 S. University Blvd., in the Wellshire neighborhood, just south of the intersection of Yale Avenue and University Boulevard in South Denver, but was built in what was then unincorporated Arapahoe County. It was the first and only home from the Wellshire Park Subdivision, planned by developers George Olinger and Lloyd Fulenwider, but was not fully developed or annexed into the City and County of Denver until after World War II.
Short-term rentals (STR) are residential properties available for rent for a period ranging from 1-29 days. The City and County of Denver requires hosts to obtain a license in order to offer a short-term rental (STR). To qualify a host must meet the following:
Work along the east side of Monaco Parkway will continue through this summer.
The tiny parkway between Dexter Street and Belo Horizonte (just off of Cranmer Park) got a little love and attention from members of the Cranmer Park/Hilltop Civic Association on Saturday morning, June 2. Ken and Kay Malo came up with the suggestion for this service project and supplied the coffee and donuts. We all came armed with a lawn tool and got to work right away clearing out dead branches and removing weeds. Nearby neighbors lent us compost and trash bins and even joined us after seeing our efforts — great to meet new people and get a helping hand. And our new best friend, Gil Salas, from Public Works, came by several times to pick up the debris and save us quite a bit of work hauling it away.
The weather has been cooperative and work has been proceeding at a good pace. Denise Sanderson, Co-Chair of the Save Our Sundial project is keeping tabs on the project and shares the following update: Stone Masons Working at the Sundial Terrace.
What is Denver Days?? Mayor Michael B. Hancock envisioned a city where neighbors not only knew their neighbors but as a result felt safer and more connected to the communities they call home. Five years ago the Mayor turned that vision into reality by creating Denver Days, a program during the first week of August that encourages neighbors to get to know their neighbors by hosting block parties, picnics, and service projects with the focus on small, organic gatherings. Park Permits are free-of-charge to those holding a picnic or public event, both of which must be free and open to the public. Applications must be submitted 30 days prior to the event. Denver Days events must abide by Denver Parks Rules and Regulations.
Co‐developers Continuum Partners and CIM Group announced the first retail tenants for their joint venture, 9+CO, a 26‐acre urban infill project at the site of the former University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. A 10‐ screen AMC Theater, Hopdoddy Burger Bar, Zoe’s Kitchen, Posno Wine Café, Chase Bank, and Bellco Credit Union have signed leases spanning three of the 12‐block project.
Denver Public Schools has closed the field at Hill Campus and Steck Elementary for revitalization work. It is expected to be closed to outside use until at least August 24, if not longer depending upon the condition of the field at that time, according to Doug Wilson, the crew chief in charge of the project. Thank you to neighbors for understanding and cooperation.
Mayor Michael B. Hancock announced the dates and locations for five community meetings the city will host to gather community feedback on what residents expect of Denver’s next Police Chief.

New here, looking around...just trying to see what all is going on the neighborhood, whether good or bad. 🤔
Summer watering rules are in effect May 1 to Oct. 1. Here are a few tips and reminders from Denver Water:
The Cranmer Park/Hilltop Civic Association is pleased to present a fun, new event for neighborhood families this summer! Once a month in June, July and August on Thursday evening, Robinson Park becomes an outdoor movie theatre featuring entertainment for the whole family. We are grateful to Stephanie Lepard for her generous sponsorship which makes this exciting, new family event possible and to neighbor and talented graphic designer, Jenn Goodrich.
State Senator Lois Court and State Representative Chris Hansen will hold a Town Hall Meeting at Four Mile House, 715 S. Forest St. on May 12, 2018 from 10 am to 11 am.
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).
In the next few days, it is anticipated that workers will begin to tap the water line that runs along the vacated Cherry Street, at the easternmost edge of the park, just in front of the homes facing the park. Running a water line from this point to the Sundial Terrace will allow a working water fountain to be a part of the reconstructed Sundial Terrace. This new water line will meet safe drinking water standards. Workers have begun laying stone – particularly on the western steps and the west facing wall – stop by and peek through the construction fence to see the progress. With the mild winter weather, the construction has moved along a bit ahead of schedule. Completion is expected in early fall. Soon, work will also commence on the separate sidewalk project – this will allow safer connectivity to the rest of the neighborhood, with new sidewalk running along First Avenue from the existing sidewalk at Cherry Street west to Bellaire Street. A sidewalk will also be placed from First Avenue to the Sundial Terrace, along Belo Horizonte. There will not be a sidewalk from the Terrace to Third Avenue.
The Great Denver Cleanup is an annual citywide event offering free drop sites for hard-to-recycle items, large household junk and yard waste. Held this year on Saturday, June 9th from 9 AM – 2 PM. Closest Free Drop Off site for our neighborhood is the Cherry Creek Transfer Station at 7301 E. Jewell Ave. Learn more about what items are accepted or not here.
