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.

Building Code Board of Appeals looking for Citizen Members!

The Denver Building Board of appeals has openings for two citizen members and one citizen alternate. The “citizen” designation refers to local residents who are not architects, engineers, contractors or otherwise employed by the building industry. We’d love your help in getting the word out. Please forward the message below to your contacts and/or include in future newsletters. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Join the BOA!

Denver’s Building Code Board of Appeals (BOA) is in search of a few good citizens! The BOA, which oversees appeals of building code-related decisions, is required to include two members and one alternate who have no job-related association with the building industry. So if you are not an architect, contractor, engineer or other building-related job holder, but you have an interest in Denver’s built environment, we invite you to apply for a board/commission appointment by following the instructions on the Mayor’s Boards & Commissions page.

Board members are paid $70 per meeting. The meetings are generally held once a month, on the fourth Thursday of each month, except in November and December, when the meeting is on the third Thursday of the month. Email: cpdcommunications@denvergov.org if you have any questions about board membership. Apply today!
