City Reviews Application for Jefferson Park’s First Historic District – Denver’s Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC) has received an application to create the city’s newest historic district along River Drive. The unique street is located southeast of the corner of W. 23rd Avenue and Clay Street and includes more than a dozen homes built in the 19th century. The area is the last intact section of a large subdivision from the 1880s called River Front Highlands that once covered a large swath of the current Jefferson Park neighborhood. Many of the homes on River Drive predate the park itself, which was built in 1899. A committee comprised of River Drive homeowners helped create the application which was submitted by Councilman Rafael Espinoza. The application is scheduled to be reviewed by the LPC on May 21. If the commission recommends approval, the application will then be reviewed by the Denver City Council which makes all final decisions on historic district designations. The process includes two scheduled opportunities for public comment at hearings in May and June.

Friends of Over the Colfax Clover:
Join us for a rescheduled public meeting at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema as we move to decide on a preferred design for Colfax & Federal. The meeting is from 6:00-7:30 pm on Tuesday February 19th at the Alamo Sloans (4255 W Colfax Ave). FB Event Page here to share.
We are now at a critical juncture in the project, with exciting news about City funding and a new long-term redesign option for consideration, based on previous community input. At this meeting, we are seeking additional input on a preferred option, as the City and CDOT evaluate the project moving forward. We will also have updates on short-term improvements, and information about a potential event on the Federal bridge over Colfax.
Snacks from the Alamo and translation and childcare provided (with I-CE-NY treats for the kiddos)!
