Update on Dustin Redd Playground in City Park from Parks and Rec

In 2014, we invested approximately $40,000 to replace all poured-in-place surfaces at the playground, as well as a slide and missing swings. We also repaired all of the rope climbers, added 30 yards of wood fibar surface, sanded and stained all the wood surfaces, and painted all of the remaining surfaces purple.

· In the coming month, we will be doing additional maintenance at the playground in preparation for a volunteer project on Wednesday, April 22, 2015. The project is the Starbucks Day of Service, which includes approximately 200 employees from local Starbucks stores. They will be focused specifically on City Park with some of their work including projects at the Dustin Redd Playground.

In addition to the playground, we have other projects that will soon get started in City Park, including the restoration of the Deboer Waterway, Prismatic Fountain and the Sullivan Gateway. These projects will start this spring/summer and carry through next year.

Proposed Site Plan
By Aaron Goldhamer
    Here is some of the information concerning the City’s requested variance within existing C-MS-8 zoning for the Central Denver Recreation Center I mentioned today at our meeting. I’ve attached the zoning appeal, as well as a graphic presented at a Stakeholders meeting on 1/7/15 with a presentation from Brad Buchanan which shows a “Potential Future Development” area (last page of the file, note somewhat different parking arrangement). The hearing on the variance is at 11 AM on 4/7/15 in the Webb Building, room 2.H.14. Letters in support due by March 24th to brett.hahnenkamp@denvergov.org, opposition should contact the City Board of Adjustment at 720.913.3050
    As I mentioned, I think the variance makes sense to maximize the available space on the site. What that space may be used for, however, may be hotly contested.
