On Friday July 21, The of City of Denver’s Motion for Summary Judgment regarding Placement of Stormwater Facility in City Park Golf Course was denied. This means that the law suit brought by Attorney Aaron Goodhamer will go to trial beginning August 21.
The suit alleges that the planned project—which will be funded by a large stormwater fee is designed to protect and shift the burden of paying for stormwater protection for I-70 and other public and private development from the builders onto Denver’s ratepayers. The lawsuit also alleges that the project’s use of designated parkland is not for park purposes and therefore contravenes the Denver City Charter, the Denver Zoning Code, and common law governing the municipal use of parkland.

In order to help protect park resources and maintain balance between recreational use and public events, a rest period was implemented for the 2016 permit season in Denver’s seven busiest parks. This pilot program was originally planned for April 1-October 31, 2016, but was extended to the same time period in 2017 in order to obtain meaningful feedback and determine any adjustments needed for 2018. Rest periods ranged from 2 to 4 weekend days per month (see this link for details). In addition, the 5th weekend in a month was not booked for public events (with exceptions for historical priority events), and no new events were booked on Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day.
