NOTES FROM INC PARC meeting March 21, 2017

PARC was reminded that the portion of this meeting regarding a proposed large music festival at Overland Golf Course site was strictly to be focused on “process.” This appeared to mean both the current process OSE is going through to make a decision on permitting this event, and a more permanent process to follow for future situations like it. If a contract is signed it will be for a period of 5 years. A great amount of time and energy already has been expended in OSE meetings with numerous groups to garner input.

Contract Compliance at Red Rocks

Our audit did, however, identify several areas for improvement regarding internal controls surrounding event user agreements. Specifically, we noted that management is not always ensuring that all contracts are executed before the events take place. Second, we found that not all invoiced amounts are being properly supported with authorizing documentation. Third, the exclusive ticketing agent has not provided assurance that its system provides reliable ticket sales information. Fourth, Denver Arts & Venues is not using electronic funds transfer for venue use payments. Finally, Denver Arts & Venues personnel are not documenting management decisions when interest penalties are waived.

Denver’s population is surging. Its summers are getting hotter. How will the city’s parks system adapt?

Reprinted from Denver Post –
A new city report that’s part of a drive to set the course for Denver Parks and Recreation for the next 15 to 20 years says such adaptations must accelerate as the parks system contends with several emerging challenges. Chief among them are a rapidly growing population with changing expectations and health needs, climate changes that will impose new environmental stresses on the landscape, and limited budgets and resources that could strain all of those efforts.

Chair Margie Valdez convened the meeting of the INC Zoning and Planning Committee and led an internal discussion of committee members about several important ongoing topics:
