John Prosser, Architect and Professor

Prosser joined CU-Boulder’s architecture school in 1966 and moved to Denver when the program relocated here a few years later, as Patricia Calhoun reported for Westword.

Early in his career in Denver, Prosser authored a proposal to save parts of the Auraria neighborhood from redevelopment, including the Tivoli brewery, which “helped give Auraria much of the character it retains today,” Calhoun wrote.

Prosser saw Denver’s modern rebuilding coming, too. “Believe me, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Colorado doesn’t know what density is,” he told The Denver Post in 2001. And he warned that the city wasn’t intellectually ready for that change.

New Developments, Park Hill Golf Course Purchase

What we know now is the city needs to obtain rights to a portion of the golf course to proceed with the design of their drainage project so that construction can begin in January of 2019. As such the city will be filing a land acquisition ordinance (LAO) that will be considered by City Council in December. This LAO will allow the City to obtain rights to a maximum of 90 acres of property, likely this will be through a temporary easement for the 90 acres to allow for construction and a permanent easement for a smaller footprint once the drainage project is complete.
