DENVER ­—On Saturday, the Denver Broncos will kick-off their first preseason game at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.

Denver’s Right of Way Enforcement agents will enforce posted parking regulations in the area during the following games:

On Street Parking

Posted signs in the stadium area restrict parking to vehicles with the correct residential parking permit posted in the window from 6:00pm to 9:00pm on weekdays and from 12:00pm to 9:00pm on weekends. Those vehicles that park without appropriate permits will be cited and towed to a temporary impound lot in Denver at 2000 W. 3rd Avenue.

For those who are eligible for a Residential Parking Permit (RPP), now is a great time to make sure their permits are current. Residents are likely eligible for RPP if they have a sign with posted restrictions on their street. To find out more, call 311 or visitdenvergov.org/rpp.

Stadium Parking

There will be handicap placard enforcement for all handicap parking lots on-site at the stadium. 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)

 Fans should also be cautious when utilizing a parking lot in the area.

Those who are not parking in one of the parking lots on stadium property should choose only locations that display a special event parking sign issued by the City & County of Denver, or are existing approved parking lots clearly managed by reputable companies.

The signs display the City & County of Denver seal 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, fans can be assured 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

Denver Public Works encourages fans to take the light rail or bus to the stadium. 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.

The stadium is also conveniently located adjacent to Denver bike paths, and it is equipped with over three hundred individual bike racks. Fans can check out denvergov.org/bikemap to plan their route or pick up a free copy of the Denver Bike Map at a local recreation center or Denver City Council office.

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.
