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 Neighborhood Flooding Survey January 2017

Many residents of the Congress Park Neighborhood have experienced flooding, especially in the past few years. The neighborhood lies mostly within the Upper Montclair drainage basin, which stretches from Alameda Avenue on the south, to Colfax Avenue on the North. The City would like to develop a plan to fix or mitigate these flooding problems, and has set up a committee of residents to help do so. On Jan  12 Congress Park Neighbors invited their residents and businesses to take a short survey asking them to give feed back as to whether they had experienced flooding in their neighborhoods over the past 5 years.  The survey closed Jan 16, 2017.

Denver Recycles’ Roundup January 2017 Issue

Setting your purple cart out for collection every-other-week is just the beginning of the recycling process. After collection, Denver Recycles trucks and crew members transport your recyclables to a recycling processor for sorting and distribution to re-manufacturing outlets. This transportation component in the recycling process is no small undertaking when you consider that more than 1,000,000 pounds of recyclables are collected from Denver homes each week. Each truck and driver collect upwards of 1,000 carts every day.
