Stadium District Master Plan – A nonprofit venture between the Metropolitan Football Stadium District (MFSD) and the Denver Broncos is exploring creating a new, mixed-use neighborhood destination on the south end of the stadium property—now occupied by surface parking lots used only during games and special events. Denver Community Planning and Development will gather community input at our June Meeting (June 12th at 6:30 PM at Riverside Church) to help guide potential new development. The MFSD and Broncos’ vision is to create a neighborhood hub where people can live, work and play, gameday experience for fans. City planners want to involve the community in a master plan for this area so that the people of Denver, and particularly adjacent neighborhoods, may provide input into the future. There will be an additional public meeting Wednesday, June 27 at the Stadium from 5:30pm-7:30pm.
Jefferson Park Cleanup – Many thanks to those of you who enjoyed a great day to help clean up Jefferson Park. We once again did our part to help fill a 30-ton construction site roll off provided by RedT. Before the volunteer crews were given gloves and equipment, they fueled up on Araujo’s
Burritos and 2914 Coffee. This year Denver Parks and Recreation aided those who chose to provide maintenance to the park. Trees in the park were provided much needed mulch and the overgrown flower garden by the Jefferson Park sign was dug up with flowers to be replanted. The Broncos Stadium District
Management team provided a gator and employees to assist with the trash pickup. All were treated to a much-deserved lunch at Sexy Pizza by the Federal Boulevard BID.
7th Annual Music at Jefferson Park – To celebrate the 7th season of Music@JeffersonPark, we picked two bands who cover the immortal music of some beloved musicians. On June 24, The Tom Petty Project will play the artist’s catalog filled with lyric-driven, folk rock, Americana power pop rock songs with melodies that will make you move your feet. The band re creates the sound and look of Petty and the Heartbreakers, even adding in Stevie Nicks duets. Sing along to the soundtrack of your life. On July 22, Wake Up and Live covers the words, music and social commentary of the cultural icon Bob Marley.
We’ll have food from our great local restaurants, Sarto’s, Sexy Pizza, and Little Man Ice Cream. Bring your blanket and get there early. Stay late for the signature encore sing along.
