Denver's New Public Health Orders and What They Mean to Businesses
 

The City and County of Denver has issued two new COVID-19 public health orders addressing face coverings and indoor capacity restrictions. The new orders are issued as the state makes the COVID-19 dial optional for local jurisdictions beginning today, April 16. 

Similar to other metro-area counties, the revised Public Health Order shifts Denver from Level Yellow according to the State’s Dial to restrictions consistent with Level Blue for most categories. The 30-day order takes effect today, April 16 and will be re-evaluated for possible extension closer to its expiration date. New capacity limits for Denver will include the following: 

  • 75 percent capacity at offices
  • 75 percent capacity for retail businesses
  • 100 percent capacity for gyms, recreation centers and pools, with six-foot distancing between non-household members 
  • 100 percent capacity for restaurants, with 6-foot distancing between parties and a group size limit of 10 
  • 25 percent capacity for bars that do not serve food, not to exceed 75 people
  • Alcohol beverage sales at bars/restaurants allowed until 2 a.m.
  • Personal Services may operate at 50 percent of the posted occupancy limit, not to exceed 50 people, whichever is less, per room.
  • Indoor events (seated or unseated) at 100 percent capacity, not to exceed 500 people, with six-foot distancing between parties (indoor events with over 500 people must request a variance through the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment, to be approved by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment) 
  • Outdoor seated and unseated events in venues of 30,000 square feet or less at 100 percent capacity, not to exceed 5,000 people, with a written mitigation plan that facilitates social distancing between parties.  
  • Outdoor Events in a venue in excess of 30,000 square feet that are seated and ticketed must consult with the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment, and must obtain approval from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment. Outdoor Events in a venue in excess of 30,000 square feet that are not both ticketed and seated must have a written mitigation plan and approval from the Denver Department of Public Health & Environment before the event can occur.   

  • Additionally, the Denver 5 Star program will allow certified businesses to operate with up to 50 additional people in each setting beyond the limits, except for the following businesses, which are limited to the capacity and distancing requirements above:  
    •    Restaurants.
    •    Indoor Events. 
    •    Recreation, including gyms, recreation centers and pools.

Any Denver 5 Star Certified Businesses that do not wish to continue the program should notify us by email here.

Denver’s Face Covering Order removes previous restrictions that required face coverings in outdoor settings. The order aligns with neighboring counties and the state’s restrictions, and provides a few additional protections, such as applying the face covering requirement to children age 3 and older.

Thank You,

Team DEDO

 


Denverites invited to plant green trees to help battle the pandemic blues
100’s of free and low-cost trees available               through Denver Digs Trees
                                                            

DENVER, CO, February 2, 2021 – Denver nonprofit organization, The Park People, is making hundreds of low-cost and free trees available to Denver residents as part of its annual Denver Digs Trees program. Residents interested in planting a tree in their yard are invited to submit an application by March 1. For COVID-19 safety, approved applicants will receive their trees via contactless delivery.  

 

“The pandemic has highlighted the importance of our outdoor spaces. As we seek ways to overcome virus fatigue and isolation blues, many of us continue to turn to the outdoors as a welcome respite, whether in our own yards or our city’s many parks and open spaces,” says Kim Yuan-Farrell, The Park People Executive Director. “Planting a tree in your yard is a great way to cultivate nature at home and become a part of Denver's thriving urban forest.” 


 

 

How to Apply for a Low-Cost or Free Tree

  • Between February 1 and March 1, Denver residents can apply online for a tree at theparkpeople.org/What-We-Do/Denver-Digs-Trees/Apply-for-Trees or call 303-722-6262 to request a paper application. 
  • Tree applications are first-come, first-served, so residents are encouraged to apply early. 
  • Trees are $10 for addresses in targeted, lower tree-canopy neighborhoods, and $35 in the rest of the city. Applicants facing financial hardship may request a 'Treeship' to receive free trees.

About the Trees and Planting Information

  • Applicants can choose from 7 different varieties that will grow to different sizes. All choices are hardy, urban-tolerant, deciduous (leaf-dropping) trees that do well in Denver. 
  • Applicants awarded trees receive and get to plant their trees in April. 
  • Trees are a manageable size, and planting and care instructions as well as training are provided.
  • Planting assistance is available to residents with physical limitations.
  • All Denver residents, businesses, nonprofits, and schools are eligible to apply.

 

About The Park People

The Park People is a 52-year-old nonprofit organization that works with Denver communities to plant trees and improve parks for a healthy, resilient future. More than 60,000 trees have been planted in Denver through The Park People’s work. The 2021 Denver Digs Trees program is sponsored by The VF Foundation, Xcel Energy Foundation, Denver Parks and Recreation, Living Room Real Estate, AT&T, Arbor Day Foundation, and OZ Architecture.

CITY COUNCIL VOTES TO APPROVE THE GROUP LIVING AMENDMENT:  We want to THANK the many of you in Cherry Creek North who helped CCNNA educate our residents and provide a forum for your voices to be heard by Councilman Hinds and the rest of Denver City Council.  You can read the response letter CCNNA wrote to Councilman Hinds below.

City Council voted to pass this amendment, with only Councilwoman Sawyer and Councilman Flynn voting against it.  CCNNA respects that Councilman Hinds had the right to vote as he deemed appropriate.  However, CCNNA wrote the following response to Councilman Hinds requesting that he respect the many (over 450) voices of the residents of Cherry Creek North, the majority of which opposed the amendment in part.  We request the Group Living Amendment be implemented taking into account the concerns raised by our neighbors.   

CCNNA Response to Councilman Hinds is described in the following letter: 

Dear Councilman Hinds:

I am writing in response to your comments at City Council on the GLAC, which were repeated in your e-letter, the Perfect 10.  We understand your vote and stated reasons therefor.  However, we at the Cherry Creek North Neighborhood Association (“CCNNA”) feel it necessary to comment on your statements about the District 10 survey.  

In your comments you stated and wrote: “Some said they didn’t want to complete the survey because of the questions I asked.  They said the questions were biased.  They said the questions were invasive.  So, these groups decided against participating in my survey and created their own survey.  That is, of course, their prerogative to go separately from the District-wide survey.  But here’s the deal, I was trying to cut through the misinformation and preconceptions and make sure people were thinking about the policy, not just reciting talking points.  

I also wanted to see if this amendment could actually be that affordability tool that CPD strives for.  That means I asked about financial stability.  "It meant asking about social networks.  If they were stable, and their social network was stable, well then, this amendment isn’t for you.  If you are severely cost burdened, or if your social network was housing insecure, then the amendment is meant for you.”   

The D10 survey questions drilled down on who had large houses, more garage spaces than cars and other questions which were apparently posed to determine which parts of District 10 were housing secure and which were not.  And the conclusion was that the GLAC is not meant for those who are housing secure.  Yet many residents feel that this major zoning amendment will impact their lives, whether or not the amendment was “meant for them”.  

Many RNO leaders and members took a tremendous amount of time to (i) read, decipher and understand the amendment and how it would impact our neighborhood (not just reciting talking points); (ii) communicate that information to residents, (iii) obtained feedback from residents on the GLAC in a straight-forward way and (iv) communicate that feedback to you.  Over 450 people in CCNNA participated in the CCNNA effort and we provided those opinions to you and the other members of City Council.  The official position of CCNNA (with which the majority of CCNNA residents who responded to our outreach) DID support the Household Definition of 5 unrelated adults, but had issues with the remaining portions of the legislation and requested that the legislation be broke out into different efforts so that Congregate Living and Residential Care could be discussed with additional provisions which could better protect neighborhoods.  

The intent of the City’s RNO ordinance is expressly to allow the flow of information to neighborhoods and then to “enable such organizations to present their positions before certain decisions affecting their neighborhoods are made by agencies and departments of the city.”  CCNNA, as the official RNO for the CCN neighborhood, presented its position with a lot of detailed information, including the responses from more than 450 residents.  The education and outreach efforts of CCNNA was in line with the RNO Ordinance cited above. To be overlooked for this approach, as opposed to those who took the D10 survey, was not respectful of those many efforts and opinions delivered to you by CCNNA.  

Councilman Hinds, you have said that we are ALL in this together.  As such, we must ALL work together to support, fight for and fund efforts to find solutions to address homelessness issues, affordability, equity and justice in housing and related legislation. Dividing along ‘secure’ living lines will not help to unite residents in finding real solutions to the difficult issues Denver faces as it continues to address the challenges growth brings to our community.

We respectfully ask for your help in allowing ALL citizens of District 10 to be able to have a voice in important legislation affecting our community, including as the City moves forward to implement the Group Living amendment.  

The CCNNA Board of Directors

 




We're matching requests for help shoveling snow from sidewalks for our Denver neighbors who are physically unable (addresses below) with volunteers from the same neighborhood.  Unfortunately we have no volunteers from your neighborhood in the Denver Snow Angels database.  If you would help identify and coordinate volunteers to shovel the sidewalks of the following Cherry Creek North residents, it would be a huge help!

For future storms, we'd love to have volunteers in Cherry Creek North who we can contact directly.  If you learn of any who would like to become a Denver Snow Angel volunteer, please have them complete a volunteer form at www.denvergov.org/snowangels

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thank you!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                          March 10, 2021

Denver - With a significant snowfall event in the forecast for this weekend, the City and County of Denver is preparing to deploy its big plows to the main streets, its residential plows to the side streets, and heavy equipment, if needed, to move heavier accumulations of snow caused by drifting.

 

Crews operating the big plows will begin arriving at 10pm on Thursday, with all drivers on duty by midnight, and starting round the clock coverage through the weekend and into next week, as required.  The snowfall amounts being predicted will result in challenging travel conditions and will likely require several days of continuous plowing operations. We ask for the public’s patience.

 

The residential plow drivers are scheduled to work their first shift 3am to 3pm Friday and, as snow starts to accumulate, will take a single pass down the center of each side street. Note the small plows do not bring the street to bare pavement but can be helpful in creating a path to the main streets and preventing deep ice ruts. Additional shifts and passes by the residential plows are planned over the weekend with round the clock coverage. 

What We Ask of Residents

·       With significant snowfall amounts anticipated, we request that you please don’t drive if you don’t have to drive and give the plows plenty of space to operate.  

·       Park off-street if you have the option to give the plows additional room.

·       Help a neighbor: Residents are encouraged to help one another, especially neighbors who may not be able to shovel snow because of health issues. 

·       Seniors and others who need regular assistance can get help through the Snow Angel program. To learn more, visit www.denvergov.org/SnowAngels

Regarding On-Street Bike Lanes

During swift, heavy snowfalls, on-street bike lanes may become snow packed. These snowy/icy conditions may linger in the bike lane several days after the storm, particularly in shady locations. Call 311 or use Pocketgov.com to report problem areas. People on bikes should be prepared to ride in a shared lane condition during this snow event, utilizing the outermost lane available and may want to consider alternate transportation options based on health, ability, weather conditions and equipment.

Sidewalk Snow

To help keep our city’s walks safe and accessible, Denver residents and businesses are responsible for clearing snow and ice from public sidewalks and ADA ramps adjacent to their properties. Note: RTD only shovels bus stops that have a shelter. If there is a bus stop with a sign and no shelter, the resident or business is responsible for this sidewalk. Please do not shovel snow into a street or bike lane.

Commercial properties (including multi-family residential)

  • Sidewalks adjacent to commercial properties (businesses and multi-family residential buildings) must be cleared within four hours, after snow has stopped falling. This includes adjacent ADA ramps and applicable bus stops.

Residential properties (single-family homes and duplexes)

  • Sidewalks adjacent to residential properties must be cleared within 24 hours, after the snow has stopped falling. This includes adjacent ADA ramps and applicable bus stops.

Inspectors begin enforcement after snow has stopped falling. Anyone wishing to report an unshoveled sidewalk may do so via 3-1-1 or www.pocketgov.com.



Dear CCNNA Residents:

Be a great neighbor! Everyone enjoys safe, clear sidewalks – and it’s everyone’s responsibility to keep the sidewalks adjacent to their home or business clear and accessible. Shovel all sidewalks, wheelchair ramps, and bus stops around your home as soon as it's practical and safe. Businesses have 4 hours after the snow stops to shovel, and residents have 24 hours. (RTD only shovels bus stops that have a shelter. If it’s just a sign with no shelter, the resident/business is responsible for this sidewalk.) 

Show kindness and offer to help your neighbors if they aren't able to shovel! Neighbors helping neighbors is one of the things that makes Denver great. You can volunteer to be an official “snow angel” at denvergov.org/snowangels or just do a #NeighborCheck. There are all sorts of reasons why people may need assistance, or they may just not know what the city’s rules are for keeping sidewalks clear. A simple conversation with a neighbor or just lending that helping hand will almost always resolve a snowy sidewalk faster than the city can, and it will preserve city resources for the rest of Denver’s 3,000 miles of sidewalks.

Tips:

  • Use the shovel to push the snow; don't lift it.
  • Shovel early! When snow isn't shoveled, it gets packed down and becomes ice. Shoveling all the way to the pavement will also prevent ice from forming.
  • Shovel into your yard, so the snow plow doesn't push it back onto your sidewalk.
  • Shovel away from roadways and bike lanes, so plows don't push the snow back onto your sidewalks.  
  • Salt can be damaging when it runs off into your lawn or the storm sewer with the snowmelt. Look for ecofriendly and pet-safe deicers. 
  • Be proactive and come up with a plan for addressing sidewalks now, before it’s snowing.
