Short Term Rental
Questionnaire Results

Denver’s proposed regulation of short term rentals is a hot topic with wide community interest. In order to give constituents a way to voice their opinions, I sent an informal survey to over 3,800 District 10 residents. 805 residents responded, and the results are as follows:

Are you currently impacted by the short-term rental of a residential property?
Yes: 17.56%
No: 82.44%
Do you agree that short-term rentals should be regulated in the City of Denver?
Yes: 82.15%
No: 17.85% READ MORE

Carla Madison Recreation Center Update

future.reccenter

As the attached presentation notes, the core “funded” program for the Rec Center remains on track, with the 8 lane lap pool, the leisure pool, a multipurpose room, a kid watch room, a gym, a fitness room, a group exercise room, and a smaller dog park on site.

Unfortunately, however, there a number of hoped-for features that do not have funding at this time. The City has made some efforts to obtain sponsorship funds from philanthropic and corporate sources, perhaps in exchange for some naming rights in connection with rooms. The City has not engaged an outside consultant to help with that process, to the dismay of some of the Stakeholders Committee. As the City’s efforts to date have been unsuccessful, some Committee members urged a more nuanced approach to fundraising to ensure success.

RTD 15L Route Improvements Project WITH ATTACHMENTS

rtd

On Feb. 16 RTD hosted a design charrette as the first step towards developing unique shelter design for the Route 15L bus stops. Area stakeholders were invited to participate in the activity in an effort to gather input on bus shelter designs that are desirable for the corridor as RTD works to design unique shelters for the 15L stops as a part of the 15L Route Improvements project.
The goal is that these shelters could be transitioned into a key element of the future Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) stations. The City of Denver is working to identify funding to move forward with the BRT project and it is desired that the shelters could be an early action item moving towards the longer term vision of BRT stations along East Colfax.
