Denver City Council District 7 Chris Nevitt October Newsletter

DISTRICT 7 UPDATE from the office of Councilman Chris Nevitt 

Denver City Councilman Chris Nevitt District 7

Mayor Hancock and Councilman Nevitt Tour “Spine of South Denver”: Broadway Corridor

As part of Mayor Hancock’s “Listening Tour” of the City, Councilman Nevitt and the Mayor toured the “Spine of South Denver” – the increasingly vibrant Broadway Corridor that is the southern entrance to the City, and the “zipper” that binds together our eastside and westside neighborhoods.

 

The Mayor and the Councilman kicked-off their tour by visiting several small businesses in the “Mayan District”, the area surrounding the famous Mayan Theater. They visited restaurants like the Walnut RoomSwift’s Steak HousePie HoleIrish Rover, and Karma Asian Cuisine. Moving south, the Councilman and Mayor Hancock visited the new Illegal Pete’s at Alameda and South Broadway, where a great example of a “Good Neighbor Agreement” was forged between the West Washington Park Neighborhood Association and the business owner. Councilman Nevitt and Mayor Hancock spoke with patrons, management, and residents on how successful this neighborhood agreement has been for the restaurant and the neighborhood.

 

The next part of the tour involved a visit to the Alameda Light Rail Station at South Cherokee and Dakota, the site of two complex and inter-related projects: the Dakota Outfall Storm Drainage Project and the D4 Urban “Alameda Station Village” project – a brand new 275-unit, multi-family transit-oriented development project right at the front door of the Alameda Station Light Rail stop. To learn more about both of these projects, click here.

 

Further down South Broadway, past I-25, Mayor Hancock and Councilman Nevitt’s next stop was to tour the recent Broadway streetscape improvements through Antique Row. The pair visited the Antique Exchange, and spoke with the owner about South Broadway’s transformation and what it means to the success of the South Broadway Corridor and the businesses that call it home.

 

After purchasing a few prized antiques, Councilman Nevitt and Mayor Hancock continued south to tour one of District 7’s newest affordable housing developments – Evans Station Lofts, a beautiful multi-story brick building built directly adjacent to the Evans Light Rail Station. Mayor Hancock and Councilman Nevitt visited with residents to discuss the benefits of affordable living right next to light rail, and also talked about the importance of Denver’s “TOD Fund“, which made this project possible, in partnership with the Urban Land Conservancy and affordable housing developers.

 

To cap-off a long afternoon along the “Spine of South Denver”, the Mayor and Councilman Nevitt moved a few blocks east to tour the small business along Old South Pearl Street, including Pajama Baking CompanyCommon Threads, and 5 Green Boxes. The Mayor and Councilman spoke with the South Pearl business owners and patrons about the success and vibrancy of South Pearl, and what it means to have thriving, walkable business districts in our neighborhoods.

 

To end the evening, Councilman Nevitt and Mayor Hancock joined leaders from neighborhoods throughout District 7 for happy hour at the Black Pearl restaurant to talk about anything and everything in their communities. The pair received feedback from neighborhood leaders on a wide range of local issues, including parking, taxes, streets, and parks. It was a lively, honest discussion between elected leaders and their neighborhood activists, and a great way for South Denver’s neighborhood leaders to interact one-on-one with the Mayor and the Councilman.

 

A lot of exciting things happening in Lucky District 7, and the success of the Broadway Corridor – the spine of our South Denver community – is emblematic of how far we’ve come to make our city a great place to live, work, and play.

Environmental Remediation and Demolition Work Continues at Gates Rubber Factory

Over the last couple of weeks, you may have noticed increased activity on the old Gates Rubber Factory site at I-25 and South Broadway. Gates Rubber is pursuing ongoing environmental remediation, and is now moving to removal of underground storage tanks and the metal buildings that covered them – hence the presence of large equipment currently on-site.

 

Depending on the success and speed of current environmental remediation efforts, Gates may also begin demolition of the most recent building on the site – the square, brick, largely windowless building directly adjacent to South Broadway. More information about the status and timeline of activity at the Gates Rubber Factory demolition will be passed along as it becomes available.

Weekday LeafDrops must be in tied or secured bags but weekend LeafDrops can be left untied. Save your plastic trash bags and our time by bringing your leaves in paper yard debris bags which, unlike plastic bags, can be composted with your leaves. Better still, bring your leaves in reusable containers or tarps that we can empty and give back. Click here to find out when and where.

 

IMPORTANT: Leaves can only be dropped off at LeafDrop sites during the designated times. We are trying to keep leaves off the street and out of the landfill. Many people are unaware that depositing a big bag of leaves at an unmanned LeafDrop spot is basically the equivalent of illegal dumping and completely defeats the purpose.

 

Click here for a list of citywide locations and other useful information. Remember, you can reclaim your leaves as compost at next spring’s Treecycle Mulch Giveaway & LeafDrop Compost Sale.

Denver Environmental Health Seeks Applications for Sustainable Neighborhoods ProgramDenver Environmental Health is soliciting applications from sustainably-minded residents and neighborhood organizations for Denver’s Sustainable Neighborhoods Program.  Modeled after the City of Lakewood’s Sustainable Neighborhoods Program, the pilot program is aimed at encouraging Denver’s neighborhoods to design and lead community sustainability projects with the potential of achieving City designation as a Sustainable Neighborhood.Two neighborhoods will be selected to participate in the initial 2014 pilot.  Participating Sustainable Neighborhoods will earn credits for achieving sustainable goals, like offering workshops, initiatives and events such as energy audits, bicycle programs and community gardens.Depending on the credits earned in a given year, neighborhoods can receive designation from the City as a “Participating Sustainable Neighborhood” or an “Outstanding Sustainable Neighborhood.”

A “Learning Community” designation will be offered for those neighborhoods not selected to be in the initial pilot program.   As part of this effort, Denver’s Sustainable Neighborhood Program will offer sustainability speakers, events with local nonprofits about how to design and lead projects, as well as build capacity in their community for taking larger sustainability actions.

This “Learning Community” will help other neighborhoods prepare to participate in future rounds of the Sustainable Neighborhoods Network program.

To learn more about program or application process, visit http://SustainableNeighborhoodNetwork.org/Denver. Sustainable Neighborhoods Applications are due November 18.

Denver Realtor Reviews: Sale of Stroh Ranch, Parker Home 19453 E Hollow Creek Dr“To say our house had some difficulties when we were trying to sell it would be an understatement. We had a very nice house but it had some things that a lot of people did not like, a small backyard, no basement and community driveway. With all three together it was going to take the right buyer that didn’t mind these issues. Chris was great through the whole process. He was very patient and helped answer all our questions as we waited for the right buyer to come. I can only imagine all our phone calDenver Realtor Reviews: Sale of Stroh Ranch, Parker Home 19453 E Hollow Creek Drls would be a pain, but he was always happy to answer all our questions, and we had a lot. Additionally, he is helping us buy our dream home, which is new construction, and he has been there every step of the process. I would highly recommend Chris. Thank you.”

Sharona talks about her Denver home in the Ruby Hill Neighborhood

Share about your home:
  • What is the name of your subdivision, neighborhood, or building?  Ruby Hill
  • How long have you lived there?  1.5 years
  • When was your home built? 1953
  • How many floors, beds, baths, and sqft does your house have?  2 floors, 4 beds, 1.5 bath, 1365 sq feet.  Plus a sunroom
  • How much longer do you think you will live there?  Indefinately.  We love our neighborhood!  Lots of future plans to develop and invest in our property and future plans to invest our contributions to the neighborhood.
  • To what part of town do you and members of your household commute for work and how often?  We commute to Centennial during the work week.  We hope to beable to telecommute in the future.
  • What are some of the highlights, bright-spots, and benefits of living in your neighborhood and/or home?  We have a direct view of the mountains and Redrocks amplitheater as well.  We are at the top of the hill so we can see the sun come up over the plains.  We love the diversity of our neighborhood.  We have very friendly and personable neighbors and we have been meeting some incredible friends of whom we have a lot in common with.  The 360 degree views from Ruby Hill park are spectacular.  It’s an up an coming park.  We enjoying being a part of the Ruby Hill Community Garden.  We love that the Platt river is down the hill and will be revitalized soon.  We plan on doing a lot of fishing.  We love the location being close to the light rail, highway and down town.  We love our house!  It is the perfect size, has charm, and has a managable size yard.  We are planning on developing our property into an urban homestead. 
  • What is your favorite block or area of your neighborhood and why?  I love the whole area around Ruby Hill Park.  The houses are cute, there are planted trees along the road, people sit on their front porch and say hi. 
  • What are some of the pitfalls of your neighborhood and/or home?  We boarder an open field with dry weeds.  I have concern of it being a fire hazzard especially around 4th of July.   I can smell the coal burning occasionally from the Excel plant south of us and I wonder if it is safe.  There is some crime in the area, not specifically on our street but near by.   We had our plumbing stolen from under our house a week before we moved in.  The house was vacant for a year before we closed.
  • Would you move to your neighborhood and home if you had it to do all over again? Yes!  We feel we made a good decision.  We are invested.
  • What is a neighborhood or building or area of town that you don’t live in but like a lot, and why?  I also like the Baker District and the Santa Fe Arts District.   The yards are a little small for what we want to do but also the costs are higher.  We got a bigger bang for our buck. 
Share about yourself:
  • Do you have a business? If so what is it?  I would like to eventually have my own buisness.  Right now we are developing our property into an urban homestead comprised of gardens, fruit trees, bees, chickens, worm composting, green house, ect.  I would like to create a school from our homestead so others will be inspired and learn how to be more self sufficient  while living in a city. 
  • What causes are you passionate about?  I am concerned about our unstainable, unstable, global food system.  As we are reaching or are in the phase of Peak Oil, our global food systems will become even more unstable and expensive as well.  I am so inspired about the surge of farmers markets in the country and I am thrilled to see more and more people digging up their lawns and installing gardens to feed their families.  I grew up gardening but I am seeing that many others have not.   I am passionate about teaching others how to become more empowered by growing and preserving their food.  True food security.
  • How can readers support your business/and or cause?  Give us a little time as we continue to develop our homestead.  Eventually, we will make an announcement about classes and tours.
Please tell me what contact information of yours you would like included.  I can be emailed at sharona_t@hotmail.com
