“Oppose: League of Women Voters of Denver based its opposition to Initiative 300 on our position on Citizen Participation in Government, which advocates for increased opportunities for citizen input into governmental process.”
This ordinance does not include public hearings before a permit is issued or a process for citizens to oppose a permit. Good government process demands input from all interested citizens for good representative results.
The initiative requires approval from only one neighborhood group or business improvement district to issue the permit and does not require prior public posting of a potential permit. Again, this ordinance limits the ability of all citizens to weigh in on the permits.
