Business owners fight to mix bud and booze

By: Amy DiPierro BusinessDen Feb 8, 2017
Khalatbari and two of his pizzerias are among five plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the state’s revenue department. The group says Initiative 300 trumps the state’s rule. The lawsuit claims Denver’s law went into effect first, and additionally, says the Department of Revenue’s Liquor & Tobacco Enforcement Division doesn’t have the power to regulate marijuana.

The gist of the blowback: scrap Colorado’s regulation.

Apartments without any parking still a concern in Denver

“The projects that really started the moratorium in effect could in fact happen anywhere in Denver,” said Bill Vanderlan, President of the Humboldt Street Neighborhood Association.

A moratorium on the development of small lots with no parking remains in place until the end of March. In the meantime, an amendment is moving through city channels, and residents don’t like what they’re hearing.

The new wording doesn’t stop things like that from going ahead, it just legitimizes it,” said Jodie Brownlee, a resident in City Park West.

INC Transportation Committee: Jan. Meeting Notes & Announcements

Will you rally with us on February 14th and join the Vision Zero Coalition in urging Mayor Hancock to address the inherent dangers of unsafe speeds on our streets? If high-speed traffic through your neighborhood has you begging people to “drive chill”, or to drive like their children live there, or if you simply believe that no one should take their lives in their hands simply by trying to get around town, this is for you!

The Vision Zero Love-In will be a truly multi-modal event, with bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit riders meeting in front of Union Station at 11:00 am and traveling together to the steps of the City and County building. Mayor Hancock will address the crowd at noon, and the rally will culminate with the delivery to the Mayor of hand-signed Valentines from Denver residents declaring their love for safe streets and support for the Safe Speeds for Denver campaign
