JPUN CONTINUES CHAMPIONING 25TH AVENUE REZONING – JPUN is bucking the trend of other Denver neighborhood associations by supporting mixed use development over residential in an area just northeast of the 25th and Eliot. On Wednesday, February 1, the Denver Planning Board approved a rezoning application made by Jaman Solutions, LLC to rezone 2827 & 2833 W. 25th Ave. Federal Boulevard Business Improvement District (FBBID), Federal Boulevard Partnership (FBP), and JPUN all testified in support. The next step in the application process will be a review by City Council’s Land Use and Transportation Infrastructure Committee. If approved, a public hearing for the application along with a vote will be held at a future City Council meeting.

ADDITIONAL NEIGHBORHOOD ZONING – The Land Use Committee (LUC) will discuss similar rezoning issues for the area southeast of the corner of 25th Avenue and Eliot at the monthly LUC Meeting held on Thursday, March 2 at 6:30 pm at Riverside Church. This additional rezoning item will also likely be discussed at the March General Membership Meeting, to be held on Tuesday, March 14 at 6:30 pm at Riverside Church. Please come to one or both meetings and let your voice be heard.

Broncos play Monday Night! Parking Advisory in Effect

PARKING ADVISORY FROM DENVER PUBLIC WORKS

Parking Restrictions around Sports Authority Field at Mile High
for Broncos Game

DENVER, CO — This Monday Night, the Denver Broncos will host a night game at home, which has Denver Public Works reminding drivers to have a game plan when it comes to parking. Be mindful and keep an eye on posted parking restrictions around the stadium. If you or guests are attending, please follow posted neighborhood parking restrictions.

On Street Parking
Denver Public Works Right of Way Enforcement Agents will enforce posted parking regulations in the area including surrounding neighborhoods during stadium events.

Posted signs in the stadium area restrict parking to vehicles with the correct residential parking permit posted in the window from 12:00PM to 9:00PM Monday. Those vehicles that park without appropriate permits will be cited and towed to a temporary impound lot in Denver at 2000 W. 3rdAvenue.

If you are eligible for a Residential Parking Permit (RPP), please make sure your permits are current. To find out more, call 3-1-1 or click here.

Sports Authority Field at Mile High Parking
New this season, there will be handicap placard enforcement for all handicap parking lots on-site at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. 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 event attendees who choose to drive should also be cautious when utilizing a parking lot in the area.

Choose only those parking lot 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
Use of public transportation to the game is encouraged. 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 is also conveniently located adjacent to Denver bike paths, and the stadium is equipped with over three hundred individual bike racks. Check out www.denvergov.org/bikemaps to plan your route or pick up a free copy of the Denver Bike Map at your local recreation center or Denver City Council office.
