City Park Golf Course Redesign Community Open House

When:
Option 1: Thursday, October 12, 2017 - 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Option 2: Saturday, October 14, 2017- 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Where: City Park Golf Course Clubhouse 2500 York St, Denver, CO 80205

The City and County of Denver is hosting two identical community meetings to share plans for the redesign of City Park Golf Course and introduce the community to the design-build team of Saunders Construction, iConGolf Studio with Hale Irwin Golf Design, and clubhouse architect Johnson Nathan Strohe. The City met with the Design Working Group (DWG) on September 14th to review and gain input on the initial design. Design will be refined based on the DWG’s feedback and shared with the broader community on October 12th and 14th.

Attendees will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with the project team, get questions answered and review informational displays.

Let's Talk Gilpin! -- Join us this Saturday

When: Saturday, October 14th, 2014
Where: Gilpin Elementary, 720 30th Street, Denver CO 80205
Time: 9:00am to 11:00am

We are kicking off our community conversations to determine long-term options for the Gilpin Facility. Discussion will also include next steps for the Gilpin Boundary and the impacts of proposed changes. Please join us for some much needed dialogue and community conversation.

Safer Crossing Demonstration

When: Saturday, October 28th, 2017
Where: 26th Ave between Welton and Emerson Streets in Five Points

This project is an initiative led by neighborhood pedestrian advocates from Project Shift working to increase safety while crossing across 26th Avenue between Downing and Welton streets. Currently, children in the neighborhood south of 26th Avenue have to cross heavy traffic at intersections with low visibility to get to the recreation center or the brand new playground at Lenore B. Quick Park. Our goal is to create a sense of place along 26th Avenue between Welton and Downing Streets by increasing pedestrian safety and preventing parking too close to the curb ramps, which do not allow pedestrians to cross safely.
