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.

Where: Gilpin Elementary, 720 30th Street, Denver CO 80205
Time: 9:00am to 11:00am

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.

Hi Cole!
There is an artistic collaboration and civic action project coming to our neighborhood & we are in need of some Cole folks interested in being part of the steering committee. This steering committee will be meeting to propose ideas as to how money should be spent. Brande' Micheau, who previously worked in Albus' office, is the person directing this. I'm not clear if there actually has been a meeting yet or not but please let us know if you are interested in participating in this & we'll get you connected.

This Machine has a Soul! Is committed to bringing participatory budgeting* to Denver by piloting two PB processes in District 9 over the course of a year from August 2017 to August 2018. Project Belay and resident leaders from the Cole neighborhood, will lead a PB process anchored in Cole and supported by participants who live, work, or attend school there. Students from Project VOYCE, a non-profit working with Denver youth to encourage civic engagement and action, will lead a PB process in Elyria and Swansea. Participants in each PB process will design and vote on project proposals that decide how $30,000 will be invested in their communities. Civic health club Warm Cookies of the Revolution along with other local artists will design artworks and performances that support the work of resident leaders and the PB process, and stir the imagination of District 9 residents, spurring artistic collaboration and civic action."

*Participatory budgeting (PB) offers an alternative to the traditional model by giving a community a portion of public funds to spend on projects in their neighborhoods at their discretion. Communities come together to propose ideas for using funds to improve their neighborhoods, design project proposals, and host a vote to decide which projects are implemented. In a nutshell: PB gives citizens more than a voice in the decision-making process; it gives them real decision-making power over real money and puts the soul back into the machine.
