What's Going On


Welcome!

Cherry Creek North (CCN) is a very special community where neighbors meet one another frequently in our conveniently walkable neighborhood.  The CCN Neighborhood Association (CCNNA) provides numerous social groups that encourage neighbors to meet and make new friends.  One of CCNNA’s social groups, the Newcomers Social Group, allows recent arrivals to the neighborhood to meet other newcomers, as well as neighbors and current residents.

         The Newcomers Social Group is currently under new leadership and receiving a refresh.  Our new Chairmen are Judi and Shazad Rana, long-time residents of CCN, who have enthusiastically supported numerous neighborhood groups through the years.  The Newcomers Social Group refresh means those who are interested in participation should register anew.

            No neighborhood can fully belong to you until you work to become a part of it.  Please consider registering today as a member of CCNNA. Your household’s $40 annual dues support our many activities and continue to bring us together to build a stronger community. CCNNA members may write ccnnewcomerssocialgroup@gmail.com to join this invigorating social group and participate in Newcomer Group activities. Please include your name, phone number and address. You will be notified of all future activities of this group.

            Are you interested in taking your Newcomers experience the next level?  Judi and Shazad are seeking Ambassadors to be part of a team who are available to reach out and engage with new residents.  Newcomers Ambassadors are also encouraged to help greet and mix at future events.

Reminder: New Trash Collection Days Start Next Week for Most City and County of Denver Trash Collection Customers

 

DENVER – Denver’s Department of Transportation and Infrastructure (DOTI) is reminding residents to check their trash collection schedules for 2022 in advance of changes coming next week! On Monday, January 3, DOTI drivers will begin running new trash, recycling, and compost routes throughout the city to make operations more efficient and collection services more reliable and consistent, and that means new trash collection days for most Denver customers. Here’s how residents can check to see what day of the week to set out their carts starting Monday:

 

 

Miss your new trash collection day? Or forget to set out your cart? Don’t worry! Call 311 (720-913-1311) to let us know. Then set out your cart and we’ll empty it within 24-48 hours after you contact us.

It has been more than 15 years since DOTI has made significant routing adjustments while the city has grown by about 200,000 people in that same period. Updated routes will help DOTI maximize existing resources: 

  • Implementing denser, more compact routes to collect the additional trash that Denverites are setting out as work-from-home trends continue. 
  • Moving to a district approach and assigning regular staff to each district to ensure more consistency and fewer missed pickups.
  • More efficient routing that will result in 62,000 fewer miles driven and reductions in fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions.

Other helpful service information as we head into 2022:

Treecyle Collection is January 3 - 14. Here’s how to participate and turn your Christmas tree into mulch that the city will make available to residents in the spring:

  • Remove all decorations, lights and tree stands.
  • Between January 3 and 14, set out trees for collection at normal trash set-out locations no later than 7:00am.
  • Set trees at least two feet away from trash, compost, and recycling containers as well as cars and other obstacles. Do not place trees inside bags or collection carts.
  • Only real trees are accepted for recycling, no artificial or flocked trees.

Large item pickup service resumes in February 2022 on an every-four-week collection schedule. Find your large item pickup schedule at bit.ly/DenverReRouteMap.

Membership represents over two-thirds of Denver's households. We focus on citizen education/advocacy and fair-balance presentations on issues impacting Denver residents.
For many years, INC has increasingly become the vital voice of Denver's neighborhoods on municipal public policy. Through its committees, INC has developed the first comprehensive Citizens Education Academy, provided representatives to City task forces, furnished resources and tools to promote neighborhood organizational development and been involved in shaping recent marijuana initiatives and short term rental conditions.

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
