Motion: City Council approved three amendments to Text Amendment 11 on first reading: the technical clarifications, the amendment requiring a zoning permit with informational notice (ZPIN) for all buildings using the small lot parking exemption and an amendment to the preamble addressing the City’s commitment to address parking demands more comprehensively. We urge City Council to vote to approve these three amendments at final reading.

Guest Speaker – Councilwoman Robin Kniech – Discussion of the General Obligation (GO) Bond
Robin is one of two ‘at-large’ councilpersons in the Denver City Council since 2011. She provides an annual newsletter, which was passed out to the meeting attendees.
At the outset of her service in 2011, Denver was in a very challenged posture (like many post-recession cities). For example, library hours were sporadic, construction was just beginning to reawaken and unemployment hovered around 10%. The environment has considerably changed for the positive today. The prior period has surfaced today in current voids in spending gaps and project delays and cancellations.
Robin spends most of efforts with ‘big picture’ issues, although she periodically gets involved in smaller specific projects. A good example of the former is that every square foot of development in Denver pays a fee toward a low-income housing fund; the first time ever. This is particularly pertinent as HUD is cutting back on this kind of disbursements.
