(FROM ANDREW WEBB) = Greetings, RNO contacts, 

The public review draft of the group living text amendment is now available for review and comment on the project website: The draft reflects revisions made to the proposal in response to public input received at open houses in February and March. Highlights include reducing the number of unrelated people who can share a home and adding off-street parking requirements, among a number of other changes. 

Along with the draft, the project website has been updated with new summary documents and frequently asked questions that reflect changes made to the original proposal based on public feedback.

An update with all the relevant information on how to comment or talk to the project team went out this afternoon to the project email list, and our communications team will do additional marketing on social media next week and throughout the 30-day public review period. Please feel free to use any of the content in the update in your own newsletters to your members. Additionally, if your organization would like to meet with the project team, let us know and we can provide a virtual platform to do so. 

Please contact me if you have any questions. Thanks, and have a great weekend!

II. Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation (“INC”) then had a delegate meeting on 7/18 and took the following action on the Group Living Proposal: 

The INC website should contain this information shortly as well:
Delegates voted on each of the three portions of the original Resolution on July 18, 2020 and approved all three after a motion to divide the Resolution was made. 

  1. INC recommends that Denver de-bundle the household definition portion of the proposal and the residential care portion of the proposal. (Passed)
  2. INC recommends that Denver not move forward on the new household definition portion of the Text Amendment without implementing a concurrent regulation creating a Rental Registry that will provide further protection for renters in Denver.  Such a Registry would be through Excise & Licensing and could require registration, licensing, inspection of all properties being used as rentals. (Passed)
  3. INC recommends the City rethink, and make mandatory, outreach by CPD to minority communities, to persons not active in RNOs or receiving communication from RNOs or through social media, to the broader community not reached in the four town halls, and to renters, so as to proactively gather input from all corners of the City.  INC strongly recommends that CPD be required to include black indigenous people of color and renters in full discussion for every planning initiative and for work on all proposed text amendments. (Passed)

III. INC Zoning Committee meeting on 7/25.Please plan on having your RNOs attend the Zoning Committee meeting this Saturday to discuss the proposal further. That information is as follows:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                   July 7, 2020


Denver Urges Residents to Remember their Street Sweeping Day to Keep Streets Clean and Avoid a Parking Citation


Denver – Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI) is reminding residents that, this month, it is resuming enforcement of parking restrictions in support of the city’s street sweeping program. Denver asks people to move their cars so that its sweepers can get all the way to the curb line where dirt and debris accumulates.


DOTI suspended enforcement of parking restrictions at the start of the street sweeping season in April due to COVID-19 Stay at Home Orders and resumed enforcement on July 1, writing 3,000 warnings last Wednesday to residents who did not move their cars (note: there was no sweeping on July 2 or July 3 due to employee furloughs and observance of the holiday).

Enforcement agents will be back out today, writing warnings for one more day, as we work to remind people they need to check the red and white signs on their blocks and remember to move their cars on their street sweeping day. Residents can also visit Pocketgov to check their sweeping schedule and sign up for reminders.

Street sweeping plays a critical role in keeping our city clean. Last year, the sweepers collected 75,555 cubic yards of dirt and debris off Denver streets, keeping it out of our air and water.

What's Going On

What Is the Gateway Project and Why Should You Know About It

THE GATEWAY PROJECT is comprised of two separate but coordinated proposed development projects along Colorado Boulevard, one at the First Avenue intersection and one at Bayaud Street intersection in Cherry Creek East. Both intersections are currently neglected areas (some would say “eyesores”) which should be enhanced to provide more appropriate “Gateways” into the Cherry Creek area. The unusual east Harrison Street block between Harrison Street and Colorado Boulevard has long presented redevelopment challenges due to the lack of an alley access and a large City setback requirement along Harrison and a ‘parkway’ setback along Colorado Blvd.

WHY NOW? For over a decade this land has needed development. Few developers have been willing to invest the time and money to negotiate a functional yet beautiful project here. Traffic, vehicular and pedestrian concerns, plus landscaping and a “Gateway” entrance concepts complicate any plan. The Cherry Creek Area Plan of 2012 contemplated redevelopment and it appears that, with neighborhood approval and proper zoning, it may at last be a possibility. The McKinnon Group which now owns the land has a proposal and has met extensively with the Cherry Creek East residents who are the most affected. He will be meeting with us on November 26th to discuss the First Avenue portion of this project.

WHAT DO WE AS RESIDENTS NEED TO KNOW AND DECIDE? The outline of the project on the north side of Colorado and 1st Avenue will ideally both protect the residential character of Cherry Creek North and improve the “Gateway” approach to the overall community by creating an inviting and safe entrance into the Cherry Creek area. Doug McKinnon’s proposal will keep the north parcel residential and provide for a more attractive gateway to the neighborhood. Doug McKinnon proposes to work with the City of Denver and CDOT (the Colorado Department of Transportation) to reconfigure the intersection in order to provide a true “Gateway” area for the neighborhoods. By reconfiguring the drive lanes to provide for pedestrian appropriate walk areas with tree lawns and Gateway location opportunities, this development provides the implementation of the vision of the Cherry Creek Area Plan. The CCNNA zoning committee has been working with Mr. McKinnon and Cherry Creek East to reach development agreements and covenant protections, which will attach to the land and be conditions to any rezoning.

Garfield Street Bikeway

Through the Denver Moves planning process, Denver Public Works has identified the Garfield Street corridor for development as a neighborhood bikeway to prioritize multimodal north/south movement between City Park and the Cherry Creek Trail. 

Neighborhood bikeways (NBWs) include design features that enhance bicycling and walking for a wide range of people while also supporting local vehicle traffic for residents and businesses. When fully constructed, the Neighborhood Bikeway will link key business destinations to neighborhoods, provide active living opportunities to families, strengthen neighborhood character, encourage mode share change along the corridor, and work toward Vision Zero safety goals.
