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.

To our 9th and Colorado redevelopment neighbors:
As with any development and construction project, there will be instances where the surrounding neighborhood could be impacted (i.e. traffic alterations, noise, etc.). The 9th and Colorado team will strive to keep everyone informed of upcoming activities that may impact you.
We will make efforts to identify major upcoming activities, but please recognize that the 9th & Colorado redevelopment is a large and complex effort and there will be times where construction activities and logistics change.
Below is the construction activity anticipated for this month, beginning the week of March 1, 2017:

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.

CPN Achieves “Participating Neighborhood” Certification!
Many thanks to all of the Congress Park neighbors involved with projects aimed at helping us reduce our environmental footprint while also improving the sustainability of our neighborhood. Since Congress Park’s acceptance into Denver’s Sustainable Neighborhood Network in August 2016, neighbors have brainstormed, designed and initiated a variety of projects, from a Recycling Workshop to Alley-Cleanups, each moving us just a few steps closer towards certification.
Did you know, for example, that our recent Leaf Drop project diverted over 200 bags of leaves from the landfill AND earned our neighborhood 16 credits?!? All because a neighbor like you had a great idea.
