Let's be heard! 5:30 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch Library, 1498 Irving St. "On the other end of the spectrum are the quiet, stable single-family neighborhoods that have been most resistant to denser development. Those might land in a category currently dubbed “enrich” — a delicate way of saying that residents might be open to light redevelopment that provides more diversity of income, education and housing stock, such as backyard cottages or townhomes on busy corners. But they don’t want huge changes.

Volunteer or Share with a neighbor who may need this, and may not be on social media. Brother’s Redevelopment Inc. is eagerly anticipating the 40th Annual Paint-A-Thon this year and we need your help. The Paint-A-Thon is a program that has utilized volunteers to paint the exterior of 7,250 homes over its history, each one absolutely FREE OF CHARGE to qualifying senior citizen and disabled homeowners. We need your help in getting the word out to deserving senior citizen or disabled homeowners who are 60 or over, live in a 1 or 1.5 story home, are living on a fixed income, and whose home is in need of exterior painting. As an advocate for the elderly in your neighborhood, you can help us by nominating a senior citizen in need of this service. Some of our most rewarding volunteer projects have been when we facilitate a neighborhood volunteer team to paint the home of one of their own neighborhood residents in need. If you would like to see a short video about the Paint-A-Thon volunteer experience, please click here.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCSI-pREsyQ

Attend a Blueprint Denver workshop to learn more, weigh in Denverites have called for a more inclusive city with strong and authentic neighborhoods. To achieve that, we must move beyond Denver’s “areas of change” and “areas of stability” model, established in 2002. Based on your input in Denveright’s Blueprint Denver planning effort, city planners are working on a new approach to managing land use in our city. The new concept acknowledges that all places in our city are constantly evolving in pursuit of becoming complete in their own way — not just through enabling or limiting development, but through quality-of-life infrastructure like safe sidewalks, housing options, transit access, parks and open space. Diversity, affordability and good urban design/architecture are key to complete neighborhoods as well. Denver will continue to grow and change. Through Denveright citywide planning, we have the opportunity to make sure these changes benefit everyone. Regional centers and corridors would take on the most growth, while the remainder of Denver’s places would evolve in smaller ways. Ensuring the proper scale and intensity for all places — and appropriate transitions between residential areas and other places — are key to livability. Come to one of several Blueprint Denver workshops in February and March to learn more about potential strategies for land use and transportation in your neighborhood and citywide.

"Drivers killed 14 people walking on Denver streets in 2017. Half of these fatal collisions happened on Federal Boulevard. Take a look at WalkDenver's new report and it’s no wonder why. Federal Boulevard is designed like a highway but cuts through residential neighborhoods and carries large numbers of bus riders."
"Colorado’s monthly average one-bedroom apartment rent did increase to an average of $1,004 per month. Denver is a different story and came in at 21 of the most expensive one-bedroom rent at $1,299 for 2017. ... However on the bright side, Denver dwellers love their city — and between the sun, snow and scenery, Denver has consistently ranked among the nations best places to live."

Recycle Christmas Trees through Denver’s Treecycle Program! Trees will be collected over two extended weekends in January People who participate in Treecycle are helping support the City’s goal of increasing its recycling rate to 34% or greater, as outlined in Mayor Hancock’s 2020 Sustainability Goals. Here’s how to participate in the 2018 program: On Friday, January 5 or Friday, January 12, Denver Solid Waste Management customers should set their trees out for collection at their normal trash set-out location no later than 7:00am. Trees will be collected no later than 5:00pm on Monday, January 8 or Monday, January 15. Only real trees are accepted for recycling; no artificial or flocked trees. Remove all decorations, lights, and tree stands. Please set trees at least two feet away from trash, compost and recycling containers, cars, and other obstacles. Do not place trees inside bags or collection carts. Denver residents who are unable to participate in Treecycle can recycle their trees for free at two drop-off locations through Wednesday, January 31: Cherry Creek Recycling Drop-Off (7352 E. Cherry Creek Drive South) Havana Nursery (10450 Smith Road) It’s important for residents to keep in mind, extra trash crews will not collect trees before or during Treecycle.
