At the end of our life, what matters more than how charitable we have been throughout our life

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.

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.

Danger Zones - Driving in Colorado

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. For more information and patterns over the last seven years check out the interactive map here: knowledgeinitiative.org/interactive-crash-map

Historic Overlays

Historic designation is one method of ensuring that changes to a neighborhood occur thoughtfully, preserving the fabric of a neighborhood that people love — homes with history, vital dwellings that preserve the past — while acknowledging modern lifestyles. Navigating the ins and outs of the designation process and what it means for your property, however, can be a difficult task. We’ve created a Historic Designation FAQ guide, which answers many of the questions we commonly receive from property owners.

    Congress Park Neighbors, Inc
    When Denver updated the city zoning code in 2010 it included a new tool, the Conservation District. Conservation District are different than historic districts because they do not regulate demolition of historic structures and do not require design review of modifications. However, conservation districts can create special zoning that supports the character of a neighborhood.
