TONIGHT: St. Dominic Rezoning & Neighborhood Watch Meetings

Come, listen, learn, speak up and speak out on issues impacting our community

Join us TONIGHT for two important neighborhood meetings at Merritt Memorial United Methodist Church (2246 Irving Street).

St. Dominic Rezoning Meeting (6:00 – 6:45 pm)

The St. Dominic Province is proposing a new priory development on two adjacent lots on 29th Ave and Hazel Court. The proposed priory includes living quarters, kitchen, living room and prayer spaces for the Dominican friars and novices.

Rezoning will be required, in order to relocate the current functions of the priory and novitiate from 29th Ave and Grove St, to allow the already existing uses to the new proposed site.

The Dominican Friars and their architects have been meeting with an executive neighborhood leadership group to share information and open up a dialogue in the development of this project.

The Sloan’s Lake Citizens’ Group, in partnership with the West Highland Neighborhood Association (WHNA), is hosting a neighborhood meeting with the goal of sharing the process thus far and gathering feedback to create a development proposal that compliments and enhances the community. At this meeting we intend to share the current proposal, including information regarding the rezoning purpose and implications, and project vision and goals.

General Meeting – Neighborhood Watch (7:00 – 8:30 pm)

NeighborhoodWatch

Why Neighborhood Watch? As part of the community, Police District 1 officers play an important role in keeping us safe. However, they cannot be on every corner, so citizen involvement is essential to combat crime. CRO Vasconcellos will guide us in our effort to increase the number of active Neighborhood Watch blocks throughout the SLCG community. For individual crime or safety concerns, please call: CRO Vasconcellos directly at 720 .913.0461

  • Welcome and introductions
  • Police District One Update
  • Neighborhood Watch: Learn from our Police District Community Resource Officer (CRO) Josh Vasconcellos about the importance of starting a Neighborhood Watch program on your block.
  • July 18th-19th Sloan’s Lake Park Dragon Boat Festival (July 18 & 19) traffic plan update.
  • Volunteers needed to help at the SLCG booth at the Dragon Boat Festival on Sunday July 19th. If you can help please contact: Margie Grimsley, 303.455.5928
  • Zoning Update
  • Wrap up: Questions, comments and concerns

REMINDER: From 6:30-7:00 pm, (just before the general meeting), a Police District One SCAT officer and/or our Community Resource Officer (CRO) will be available to meet with residents individually to address specific crime and safety concerns.

TONIGHT: Re-imagine West Colfax Workshop

Tonight at 6:00 pm join the West Colfax BID at 4500 W. Colfax Avenue for the first meeting to plan the location and a layout for the one day demonstration project to Re-imagine West Colfax! Participants will begin to work on the designs for the block of West Colfax between Tennyson and Utica, as shown below, with side street bike lanes.

colfax

This layout was developed in the second phase of the project, a highly successful one-day technical workshop with volunteers from Alta Planning, Wilson & Company, Toole Design, HDR, Denver Public Works, CDOT and RTD. It reflects the concerns and preferences of businesses and residents from phase one, two sessions on June 11th. Biggest ideas include improvements to a pedestrian crossing at Utica, bike lanes on 14th and Tennyson, planted bulbouts, parklets, pop-up retail, and expanded sidewalk near the new Little Man Ice Cream, public art, and more!

Tonight’s meeting is your opportunity to help to refine and implement the August 16th test run of this design, not to mention create fun celebration!

Join the West Colfax BID on these dates to learn more about the design and plan the event in August:

See you there!
