Parking Advisory – Gold Cup Soccer Games

DENVER ­—Fans heading to Sports Authority Field at Mile High today for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup Games need to keep an eye out for posted parking restrictions around the stadium and surrounding neighborhoods. During stadium events, Denver’s Right of Way Enforcement agents will enforce posted parking regulations in the area.

On Street Parking

Posted signs in the stadium area restrict parking to vehicles with the correct residential parking permit posted in the window from 6:00pm to 9:00pm on Thursday.

If you are eligible for a Residential Parking Permit (RPP), now is a great time to make sure your permits are current. You are likely eligible for RPP if you have a sign with posted restrictions on your street. To find out more, call 311 or visit denvergov.org/rpp.

Stadium Parking

Stadium parking opens at 2:00pm and costs $20.00. There will be handicap placard enforcement for all handicap parking lots on-site at the stadium. Anyone who would like to park in these lots will be asked to show proof of their handicap placard registration before they will be allowed to enter.

Off-Street Parking (parking lots)

Drivers should also be cautious when utilizing a parking lot in the area.

If you are not parking in one of the parking lots on stadium property, choose only those locations that 1) display a special event parking sign issued by the City & County of Denver, or 2) are existing approved parking lots clearly managed by reputable companies.

The signs display the seal of the City & County of Denver and include the address of the parking location. These signs were issued because of the proliferation of illegal parking lots taking drivers’ money, only to have the drivers return to their vehicles to find it ticketed and/or towed. When parking in a lot with the City & County of Denver sign posted, drivers can be assured that they will be parked legally and are not in danger of tickets, tows or being “parked in” (blocked or trapped in a space by other vehicles).

Alternative Transportation

Denver Public Works also encourages people to use public transportation to get to the games. The stadium is easily accessible by light rail or bus. Please check with RTD on schedules prior to planning your trip. Go to rtd-denver.com or call the RTD Telephone Information Center at 303-299-6000.

The stadium is also conveniently located adjacent to Denver bike paths, and it is equipped with over three hundred individual bike racks. Check out denvergov.org/bikemap to plan your route or pick up a free copy of the 2017 Denver Bike Map at your local recreation center or Denver City Council office.

Future of Central Platte Valley-Auraria District – Public Meeting – July 13th – 5:30 PM @ Tivoli Student Union

Ever considered the future of the Central Platte Valley-Auraria District? Ever heard of the Central Platte Valley-Auraria District?

This area of land—encompassed by I-25, Speer Boulevard and Auraria Parkway—was identified as such by the 2007 Downtown Area Plan. The plan guides development in the downtown area and was conducted under the joint leadership of the City and County of Denver and the Downtown Denver Partnership, with the input of more than 2,000 community participants over a 15-month period. The “Central Platte Valley-Auraria District” was included but not detailed in the 2007 Downtown Area Plan. Much of the land is surface parking lots serving cultural and entertainment venues, including the Pepsi Center, Elitch Gardens, the Downtown Aquarium and the Children’s Museum.

A key recommendation of the 2007 plan was to attract more housing, mixed-use and pedestrian-friendly development to this area, and city planners want Denver residents and stakeholders, particularly downtown residents, to provide input into the future of this area and create more detailed guidance for future development.

The first public meeting for this plan amendment will take place at 5:30 p.m.Thursday, July 13 in the Tivoli Student Union (Baerresen Ballroom) on the Auraria Campus. We invite you to attend and give your input into the future of this key area of Downtown Denver. Details are available on the attached flier and on the plan webpage. Please help us get the word out by forwarding this email and posting the flier to your social networks.

If you have questions or comments, contact Senior City Planner Lilly Djaniants (Liliya.Djaniants@denvergov.org)
