New’s Letter Spring 2017

Short term rentals (STRs) are found in all parts of Denver with a noticeably heavy concentration of them in the central neighborhoods of District 10. Capitol Hill, Cheesman Park and Congress Park have the most STRs, but STR opportunities exist in almost all District 10 neighborhoods.On June 12, 2016, after two years of discussion, Denver City Council approved a measure to allow STR’s only in primary residences. The rules took effect on July 1st and gave hosts until December 31, 2016 to obtain a business license with the city, pay the city’s 10.75% Lodger’s Tax and come into compliance with the new regulations. Enforcement of the new law began on January 1, 2017.

CONGRESS PARK TO CONVERT TO CITY BARREL TRASH COLLECTION

Say goodby to your privately owned barrels and dumpsters.  

In correspondence with Charlotte Pittman, Denver Solid  Waste, tentative plans for conversion to city owned barrel trash collection shouild start  in July 2017, with educational outreach beginning in April 2017. We have been contacted by residents regarding concerns about the elderly trying to navigate the new carts down many stairs to the curb.     At this point it looks like if pickup is in the alley it will continue to be in the alley.
