Meetings and Forums
Zoning, Transportation & Licensing Committee
The next meeting of the Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods Zoning, Transportation and Licensing Committee will be focused on Denver's Initiative 300, which citizens will be voting on in the May municipal election.
If enacted, Initiative 300 would change Denver's laws regarding occupancy of public places by those experiencing homelessness. Titled the "Right to Survive" initiative by its proponents, this is shaping up to be the most controversial initiative on the upcoming ballot. Speakers from both the "pro" and "con" side will be at this meeting to discuss the issues, along with a representative of a service provider to provide information regarding the background issue of homelessness in Denver.
City Needs Your Help with Neighborhood Plan Focus Groups
As the City moves forward with the planning process for the East Central area, which includes several CHUN neighborhoods (North Capitol Hill, City Park West, City Park, Capitol Hill, Cheesman Park and Congress Park), it has planned five limited topic focus groups in April, all at the Carla Madison Recreation Center, 2401 E. Colfax Ave., and all from 6-8 p.m. Make plans to participate in one or more of them
East and East Central Area Plans: Mobility Focus Group #2
The City and County of Denver invites you to participate in a discussion regarding mobility and transportation in the East (South Park Hill, Hale, Montclair, and East Colfax) and East Central (North Capitol Hill, Capitol Hill, City Park West, Cheesman Park, City Park, and Congress Park) planning areas.
As a reminder, the City is working on a long-range plan for each of these groups of neighborhoods as part of the Neighborhood Planning Initiative. We would like your help identifying critical issues and developing strategies around mobility for the residents of East and East Central.
The first focus group was held to frame the issues and provide direction to the project team in January—thank you for your participation at that meeting. You are invited to attend the second discussion to develop recommendations that address key issues and meet community goals.
