Different Point of View on Planning Healthy City
A policy change planned by DPR could make the rules for festival park use apply to ALL parks, which would mean all parks in the system will have the same alcohol regulations, some of which now allow greater use only in festival parks. Please read the proposed revisions carefully and distribute to your respective RNOs and friends. The city’s parks department is circulating a proposal for significant changes to alcohol policy in Parks. Laura Morales and Fred Weiss will attend our April 17 meeting to discuss. Of note: The INC PARC meeting is considered to be one of the 4 public meetings for outreach to the community.
Good registration, $25,000 + in sponsorship received, arrangements coming together well. Andrew Romanoff agreed to be emcee and the Mayor has been briefed about his presentation.
Any future correspondence between INC Chairs and city entities must first be submitted to the President prior to sending to the city.
The Delegate meeting on February 10 directed INC to try to move the Annual Meeting (March 10) to be held at the same facility as the upcoming Park Hill Golf Course Informational Forum. Discussion included who to invite to be on a panel other than the INC representatives, who to be the moderator, and whether or not to seek “celebrity names” to participate.

The Denver Moves: Transit plan is nearing the completion of its core recommendations, which are being reviewed in a series of public meetings throughout the city in the coming weeks. The major recommendation is for the creation of a “Frequent Transit Network” — a grid of high-frequency all-day prioritized transit throughout the city. Where the ridership and other factors warrant it, the plan will be calling for significant upgrades to ensure transit operates with high reliability. In other corridors, less capital-intensive changes are needed to prevent transit from being stuck in traffic. Other recommendations for quality transit stops and amenities are also expected in the upcoming draft plan.
