This resolution passed with the INC delegation. If acted upon this purchase could provide additional park land for an area under served and also help to provide relief for other regional parks.
pop-up park starts in June on 21st Street between Larimer and Lawrence streets. This appears to be further evidence that Denver requires more parks and open space for their residents. This will be in cooperation with Down Town Denver.

Most recently, in 2000 the two parties entered into an “Agency Agreement” that was intended to contain the entire agreement between them concerning Park Hill Golf Course (Para. 17). The agency agreement and it summary can be found at http://www.denverinc.org/clayton-agency-agreement/. It is a unique opportunity to acquire 155 acres of open space in a part of Denver lacking park space, and that is easily accessible by transit. He attended the last PRAB meeting to urge them to support. Cindy told of the four talking points about this project that should be conveyed in our press release.

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.

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.
