Congress Park Neighbors Green Team October Newsletter


The CPNGT wishes to send a big shout out to some special people who have been instrumental in getting our neighborhood green team up and running. Sadly, each of these folks is moving on, either to other neighborhoods (no!!) or on to other related projects (phew! at least we not completely losing them!). Before they go too far, we wanted to let them know how much we appreciate all they contributed and that we are happy to have had the good fortune to work together and get to know each other, at least a bit.

2016 DA Debate with the Colorado Independent


It’s often said that a district attorney has more direct power over people’s lives than a mayor. If that’s so, Denver voters need to know who’s running and how he or she differs from outgoing Denver DA Mitch Morrissey.

Where do the candidates stand on prosecuting the homeless and mental ill? What are they thinking about racial profiling, excessive force and the city’s longstanding pattern of not prosecuting killer cops and sheriff’s deputies?

One thing is for sure though, it is history (or herstory) in the making because this DA will be Denver’s first woman to hold this office

Subject: Carla Madison Recreation Center Update


Retail Pad Site

The project team has elected to remove the retail pad site from the market. The area will be built as part of the plaza and includes site concrete and landscaping features. This land will remain a City asset and can be considered for future development at a later date.

Current Construction

Many of you have probably driven by the site of the future Carla Madison Recreation Center and seen the concrete, masonry, and steel structure that has been erected. Starting last week large steel joists were delivered. These joists are very large and require street parking closures. The project team tried to move the date of this work to occur before school started but was unable to do so. Deliveries will be limited to the hours of 9:00am to 3:00pm in order minimize impact on school-related traffic. The street parking on the southbound lanes of the Esplanade are closed between 17th and 16th Ave. and there is a police officer stationed at the intersection of 17th Ave and Esplanade to assist in the safety of the operation.
