Our kiddo is sick in bed, so we sadly will have to miss the tour tomorrow morning at Trevista at Horace Mann. That means there are now 3 slots available if you're interested! (remember, they're launching a new 90/10 Spanish dual language program next year, very exciting)

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
A note from our President and CEO, Andrew Schuman: “With every new year comes new opportunities. Last week, Hammond’s Brands announced that Old Dominion Peanut's manufacturing facility in Norfolk, Virginia will be closing so that we are able to better serve the future needs of our customers. Part of the Old Dominion Peanut operations will move to the Hammond’s Brands headquarters in Denver, Colorado. We will also transfer some production to a third party under a long-term co-manufacturing agreement, which will allow us to bring some great new product segments to market in the near future, in addition to our current products which will continue to be produced to our 100 year old recipes. Please rest assured that closing the plant does not mean the end of Old Dominion Peanut Company. We believe it is the beginning of an exciting next chapter of our business. Please direct questions to email@example.com."

Factotum Brewhouse and Monkey Barrel recently released their second collaboration beer, Curious Jorge, to help fund improvements at Chaffee Park in Sunnyside! $1 from every pint sold will benefit the park and its playground :-) The beer is an amber ale brewed exclusively with Australian and New Zealand hops and the name is a nod to both Monkey Barrel as well as Sunnyside’s Hispanic roots. The beer can be found at either Factotum or The Monkey Barrel and may find its way to other local watering holes, too.
