PRESS RELEASE: CITY PARK FRIENDS & NEIGHBORS (RNO) LAWSUIT INFO

On June 5, 2017, the Denver District Court heard arguments regarding the City’s assertion that 220 documents (7,400 pages) should be protected by the “deliberative process” privilege—which stems from the “executive privilege”.
The Court ruled that the 7400 pages should not be handed over to the Plaintiffs
(people suing the city to protect CPGC) in the CPGC lawsuit. The City has repeatedly claimed in public and under oath, that they are committed to transparency and have nothing to hide. However, in court, the City

As an example, six neighborhoods (Capitol Hill, North Capitol Hill, Cheesman Park, Congress Park, West City Park and City Park) along with Colfax Avenue will combine to form the East Central planning area. Residents, neighborhood groups, and community leaders will participate in this important planning effort.
