Shaping Denver Get Involved!

Shaping Denver Get Involved! 

 Recently we had an opprotunity to be appart of the BRUN neighborhood meetings. We learn so much in these meetings and will share other fun bit-o-info on other blogs. However, after our most recent meeting we learned about an AMAZING opprotunity that gets US, the community, involved.

“Involved”, you may groan. YES! Involved!

Have you ever made a comment, complaint or quandry about any of the following:

  1. Denver Parks or Denver Recreation?
  2. Denver Pedestrian Walkways, Pathways and Trails? 
  3. Land use or Transportation?
  4. Denver Transit?

Now if you say No, then this a call out. “WE DON’T BELIVE YOU!” If you haven’t gripped about traffic, sidewalks, road closures or any of that then you may be living, well, not in Denver.

Well here is your chance! Get up, do something about it. Get involved. Stop with the “talk” and put some “ACTION” into it! Denver is heading up DenverRight. Their statment is simple, ” Community-driven planning process that challenges you to shape how we want to evolve”. It’s that simple!

So with that, now we all have NO excuse to grip, complain any more. There is now an opprotunity for us to get invovled and help our Little Big City of DENVER grow into what we hope and know it can become!

Check out the video below for some more info, but hey, lets get involved and do something about this city we love called DENVER aka Mile High aka, #myplaceIcallhome.

Denver Civic Center Park

Denver Civic Center Park

If you have ever driven in Denver, you may have once driven by the capitol building off of Colfax and Broadway. As well as you may have been privy to experience the frequent bus stops and pedestrian clusers. Well, so did Denver! After a a bit of research the city of Denver and the DownTown Denver Partnership have created a plan to help with the traffic movement and pedestrian safety.

They have created an entire plan to change the flow of traffic as well as the pick up drop of for pedestrians.

Be A Smart Ash Denver

Be A Smart Ash – Don’t mind if I do

Recently walking around Denver I noticed a few trees with a little plastic sleve wrapped around them. The print on the sleve was simiply “BeaSmartAsh.org”. Well isn’t that cute and “punny”. After a few weeks, curiousity got the best of me.

What was this all about? So I started to do some research.

I found out that Denver started to run a campaign to give discounted and sometime FREE trees to Denver homes.  SAY WHAT?!!

There are two campaigns that are run. One, that is currently running is the BeASmartAsh.org. The Second Campaign will start at the begining of the year.

Why should you care?  Well, the site does a great job of soliciting why. My take on it…we need more trees!!

Want to see if you are a canidate for a tree? Here is a direct link to apply!

So if you live in Denver, or know someone who does…share this. It is a really neat program and it will help our “Little-Big-City” Denver become more beautiful and cool!

Where Are They Coming From?

So Many People Are Moving Here…But Where Are They Coming From?

No surprise to us ‘natives‘ that many people are planting themselves in lovely Denver but where are all of these transplants coming from? Between 2009 to 2013, a whopping 100,000 people made Denver County home!  Westword’s article discusses where all of these movers came from but mind you, not all were from out of state! 42,674 moved from other counties in Colorado to Denver.  The remainder mostly came from California with  8,282 people, while Bexar County, Texas brought up the end with 652 making the exodus to Denver.   Check out the rest of the results here.

So, that is where they are coming from.
