JPUN – If you Have to Light or Ignite…remember, its Illegal!

Reminder for this 4th of July! Stay safe!
 
If you Have to Light or Ignite…its Illegal! – Reminder fireworks in Denver are against the law. DPD and Fire Department will be partnering for extra enforcement of violations of the Fireworks ordinance over the 4th of July Holiday.
 
Penalties for violations can go up to $999 and up to a year in Jail. To report the use of illegal fireworks in Denver, call the police non-emergency number at 720-913-2000 or 311. If it is an emergency dial 911.Additionally you can call Denver Park Rangers at 303.331.4050. You will leave a message and someone will contact you back in ten minutes to discuss the situation. Please expect some delays in response. It would not hurt to call both the police and park ranges. All park rangers will be working the holiday weekend and we are not alone in having large aerial firework problems.
 
Enjoy your 4th of July weekend JPUN Community!

PARKING ADVISORY FROM DENVER PUBLIC WORKS: 4th of July

PARKING ADVISORY FROM DENVER PUBLIC WORKS

Monday, July 4: Meters Free & Special Event Enforcement Around Sports Authority Field at Mile High

DENVER ­— As many turn their attention to 4th of July festivities around Denver this weekend, Denver Public Works also encourages residents and visitors to pay attention to parking restrictions around the city.

Parking meters will be free on Monday, July 4. However, drivers must still follow the time restrictions posted on the meters.

Meanwhile, those heading to Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Monday, July 4 for the Outlaws game and fireworks show need to keep an eye out for posted parking restrictions around the stadium and surrounding neighborhoods. If you are attending, please follow posted neighborhood parking restrictions.

On Street Parking

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

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.

Sports Authority Field at Mile High Parking

Parking in the stadium lots at Sports Authority Field at Mile High will be $10 for those attending the game and fireworks show. There will also be handicap placard enforcement for all handicap parking lots on-site. 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)

Sports Authority Field at Mile High special event attendees who choose to drive should also exercise caution when utilizing a parking lot in the area.

If you are not parking in one of the parking lots on Sports Authority Field at Mile High 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. Sports Authority Field at Mile High 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.

Sports Authority Field at Mile High is also conveniently located adjacent to Denver bike paths, and the stadium is equipped with over three hundred individual bike racks. Check outdenvergov.org/bikemap to plan your route or pick up a free copy of the 2016 Denver Bike Map at your local recreation center or Denver City Council office.

Don’t miss out on the following in our June issue!

JPUN News Jun 2016

  • Save-the-Date: Summer Concert Series
    • Music at Jefferson Park’s Summer Concert Series Sunday, July 24 & Sunday, August 28 5:00-8:00 pm in the grassy bowls of Jefferson Park Bands to be announced – Volunteers are needed for the music committee  as well as to help set up the day of the events. Contact info@jpun.org to volunteer!
  • Although the Jefferson Park staple has been set to move out of its current location and into the downtown area for some time now, construction should also begin this year on a second La Loma restaurant on Seventh Street near the Denver Aquarium – a new flagship location still in Jefferson Park but on the other side of Interstate 25. Delays in development will allow the current Jefferson Park location to keep its doors open to the neighborhood through the end of June.
  • The first of the premier Jefferson Park Farm and Flea Market was a huge success this year! A large crowd enjoyed the sounds of Los Dos Viejos,delicious food, and vendors selling wares perfect for spring plantings.  The BID was able to distribute hundreds of free lettuce, broccoli and cabbage seedlings. We hope that they survived the hail! Be sure to bring back your garden bounty to our late-summer markets coming up – next market on Saturday, June 11th.
  • ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL CLEANUP! JPUN would like to thank 2785 Speer for being the title sponsor of this event for many years, Riverside Church for once again providing lunch for all of the volunteers, Araujo’s for providing breakfast burritos, 2914 Coffee for fueling folks with coffee, Sinclair Gas Station (21st & Federal) for donating soda and candy for the piñata, Kym Foster, our illustrious chairperson of Clean Up Day this year, and last but not least those who volunteered your time on a Saturday morning to help make your neighborhood a better place.
