Please come to the JPUN general membership meeting and express your opinions.
SMALL LOT PARKING EXEMPTION = MORE CARS PARKED ON STREETS – The Denver Zoning Code provides an exemption from off-street minimum parking requirements for lots 6,250 square feet or smaller in mixed-use commercial zoning districts. City Council recently adopted a moratorium on the use of this exemption that is set to expire on March 31, 2017. The moratorium is intended to allow time to study the issue and develop alternatives that ultimately lead to a text amendment to the Denver Zoning Code within the moratorium timeframe. Jefferson Park has a number of these small lots. Consider attending the JPUN general membership meeting to voice your opinion regarding more cars being parked on our streets.

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.

Denver Council Rejects Preservation Bid – The Denver City Council late Monday rejected landmark status for a Queen Anne-style home with a hilltop perch over Jefferson Park. After a 90 minute public hearing full of sharp comments from both sides and more than an hour of council debate, its members sided with Battista 7-4 in a vote taken just before midnight.
Steam on the Platte Breaks Ground – By next summer, two abandoned buildings on the banks of the South Platte River will be converted into office space for tech companies, creative businesses and a restaurant. A 65,000-square-foot warehouse — the largest brick-and-timber structure available for redevelopment in the city — will be transformed into the office space for tech companies and creative businesses, and a 6,000- square-foot former gas station with a bowstring roof will be converted into restaurant space. NIMBL, a technology consulting firm, has signed on as the anchor tenant for the warehouse building.
This Thursday’s Land Use meeting will be held at 6:30 PM in a conference room at 2785 Speer.
