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.

Hi Cole!
The Cole Neighborhood Association is having our block party on Saturday August 5th at Russell Square Park.

We're looking for neighborhood non-profits & community organizations that may be interested in setting up a table or booth. There is no charge however we're only providing space to bring your own tables, chairs, tents. If you do bring a tent it can't be staked; sandbags or other weights need to be used.

Please let me know ahead of time if you are planning on coming so we are aware.

Update from Xcel on the digging they are doing in Cole. They were supposed to be completed this past Tuesday so we inquired & the following was their response:

"Part of the challenge in underground construction is that you never quite know what you will find. In older/historical neighborhoods there are often generations of buried utilities underground. When we find a line that was not previously located by the owner/811, we have to assume that it is live. This is for the safety of our crews as well as the public. We have found multiple unknown and unmarked utilities since we last spoke and these have delayed to the project.

Duct bank installation will be completed next Tuesday. Paving is scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday. This will allow the reopening of Bruce Randolph on next Friday.

There will be a small crew testing the duct bank for the next 2-4 weeks, but they will not have nearly the impact to residents and businesses. Roads will be open during the testing phase."
