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.

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.
