From District 6 Officer Gillian

Hi! I hope you are ALL healthy and well.  Please see the [letter and] Press Release [below letter] from the Denver Police Department in relation to staying safe physically, mentally and emotionally during this time of increases stress and quarantine. During these challenged times, it is imperative that we take care of ourselves but more importantly, that we take care of each other. If you see a crime in progress, please call 911.  With more people home, our neighborhood watch should be in full effect with the incredibly increase of eyes and ears in our neighborhoods.  Also, please remember to be vigilant of the businesses that are closed.  When you are out for essential business, exercising or walking your dog, keep your social distancing and PLEASE make sure you to call 911 if you see suspicious activity in our nonessential retail locations.  If you have a business that is currently closed, we want to help provide signage to deter criminal activity at your place of business.  Remember that those who are considered “nonessential” are counting on the residents, remote security systems and the police department to keep watch while they can not be present. If we do this, we will be a good neighbor. In closing, please remember to stay home and only travel out of necessity.  We are all this together and will be on the other side shortly.  Please feel free to share this valuable information on your forums, internal communications and services for the homeless. Stay healthy and be well! Respectfully, Officer Theresa Gillian Denver Police Department 720.663.8203  Resources for Residents Experiencing Abuse in the Home  DENVER – These are challenging times, but the City and County of Denver is doing its part to ensure that those who find themselves in hard times have the help and access to the resources they need. This is especially true for those who live with an abusive partner. Regardless of the stay at home order, there continues to be resources and support for victims of domestic violence and child abuse. “Staying safe and healthy during this time isn’t just about washing your hands or physical distancing, it’s about ensuring that where we ‘stay at home’ is safe, too,” said Mayor Michael B. Hancock. “If you are housed with your abuser, you are allowed to leave to find a safe place to shelter. If you need help with that, there are resources for you.” There are simple ways to reduce the stress COVID-19 brings, such as, limiting the amount of news you watch or read, going for a walk while minding social distancing, playing a board game, reading a book, limiting anything that could alter your judgement, such as alcohol or marijuana, taking a timeout if things become too much, and many others ideas to help create a positive and safe place at home.

Update on 777 E. 17th Avenue (aka Dome Bar, JRs, Tony Ps)

Update on 777 E. 17th Avenue (aka Dome Bar, JRs, Tony Ps) On Friday, April 3, 2020 a phone conference was held related to the application for a Certificate of Demolition Eligibility for 777 E. 17th Avenue (also known as the former Dome Bar, JRs and Tony Ps) between a group of RNO representatives (CHUN, Uptown on the Hill, City Park West), Historic Denver, and the owners of the building. The discussion centered around three general areas of concern, which included: Generally, the group wanted to ensure that design quality of a potential future development was compatible with the neighborhood. Concerns with design of adjacent buildings was mentioned and the hope that any future development complements the Uptown/North Capitol Hill neighborhood. The potential demolition of buildings without having a development already approved and building permit released was identified as a concern. Some RNO representatives stated that a potential compromise on this would be to come to an agreement to delay demolition until a building permit is received. General discussion on the potential of incorporating the building into the development. The importance of preserving the building seems to be along a spectrum, with some representatives expressing a strong interest in preventing demolition or having the building incorporated into the development, and others potentially open to redevelopment once more information about the proposed development is provided. The group learned that the owner is not the developer for this project, and requested a discussion with the developer be scheduled. The conversation concluded with the owner offering to coordinate this meeting to discuss the project plans in further detail. If you have additional questions, you may contact the City Park West Neighborhood Association Board at info@cityparkwest.org or through the City Park West Neighbors Facebook group.
