PCD Meeting January 12, 2021

3334 Quivas Street: The owner presented her request for a variance for a proposed ADU at the rear of the property. PCD asked the owner to confirm the dimensions of the proposed structure and suggested that with some minor changes to the design she might be able to avoid the need for a variance. Committee members noted that the Board of Adjustment-Zoning will be looking for a true hardship and that they had trouble seeing one on a large lot like this.
3533 Quivas Street: Denver Urban Garden (DUG) sold a portion of the El Oasis Garden and is seeking a variance to establish a lot for a smaller El Oasis Garden that does not have street access. The request goes to the Board of Adjustment on January 19. Following PCD Committee discussion, a motion to recommend approval of the variance was approved unanimously subject to DUG recording a Deed Restriction that would ensure that the garden remain a garden in perpetuity.

Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids

Banning flavored tobacco is a life-saving policy,  most specifically, within communities of color when they include menthol cigarettes.   
Protecting the public health of Denver residents remains a priority of our coalition, and that of the nearly now 40 organizations that are endorsing this work and are eager to engage.  

Supporting organizations (listed on the attached factsheet) include NAACP, the Denver Chapter of the NAACP, the Colorado Black Health Collaborative, the Center for African American Health, One Colorado and the Colorado Latino Leadership Advocacy & Research Organization.  The number of those supporting continues to increase as we further engage organizations and individuals in our work.

Important facts that support our work, and the reason why we are working towards this policy change for Denver: 
· 81 percent of kids initiate use of tobacco because it is flavored
· 97 percent of those who use have used a flavored product in the last 30 days
· While Colorado leads the nation in use of vaping products at over 26 percent of kids who use, only five percent of adults use vaping     products in Colorado. 

Read the fact sheet and resolution below.

Denver Arts & Venues calls for local artists and businesses to delight and surprise Denver residents, and create positive connections through art by committing to participate in World Art Drop Day Tuesday, Sept. 1. Additionally, participants can be featured on Denver Arts & Venues Art Shop Marketplace, created to help support sales and commerce.
World Art Drop Day occurs annually on the first Tuesday of September and was conceived by Utah’s Jake Parker with the goal of connecting people to one another, and generating random bonds between strangers through the act of creating and giving.
“We’ve supported Art Drop Day for several years, promoting the opportunity for artists and community members to connect through art,” said Denver Arts & Venues Executive Director Ginger White Brunetti. “But this year is special. In addition to artists hiding small pieces of free art, we are inviting them to be showcased on”
All past and current Art Drop Denver participants are eligible to be featured in the Art Shop Marketplace. Each Thursday, Arts & Venues will randomly select a few artists who will also be promoted on social media and highlighted in the weekly e-newsletter which reaches more than 40,000 people.
“2020 has been a difficult year for artists. As events are canceled, galleries are closed or facing limited hours of operation, and businesses across the gamut are facing economic stress, we wanted to give Denver’s artistic community a chance to showcase their talents,” explained Denver Arts & Venues Strategic Partnerships & Community Programming Specialist Brooke Dilling. “We hope that people will find a way to support our artistic community by purchasing art, lessons, music, event tickets and the like.”
Artists, musicians, crafters, teachers and other individuals can be featured as part of Art Shop by completing a short form with a photo, a brief description and links to their social media, as well as their website so people can purchase artwork, music, lessons, tickets, etc.
Artists interested in the Art Drop Day social media scavenger hunt can commit to participate by filling out the online form and creating a small, inexpensive piece or two to share on Art Drop Day. Then, on Tuesday, Sept. 1, artists and other participants can hide art around town, and drop hints and clues on social media so people can find their creations.
The public can participate in the fun and search for art by following #artdropday and #artdropdenver on social media, or by joining the Art Drop Denver Facebook group. Families and hobbyists can also get involved by creating and “dropping” art. Additionally, businesses can support local artists by purchasing artwork or art supplies and hiding them around town.
“It’s not just about visual art either. We have seen people hide books, jewelry, music, even theatre tickets,” continued Dilling. “We wanted to make sure to say thank you to all of those participants by supporting them through the Art Shop Marketplace.”
An estimated 1,000 pieces of art were hidden in the Denver-metro area in 2018 and 2019. The Art Drop Denver Facebook group has nearly 3,000 members, more than doubling each year since it was created.

Denver Climate Action on the November Ballot

Image 8-27-20 at 12.05 PM.jpg

On August 3rd, the Denver City Council voted to refer a sales tax increase to the November ballot. If the tax is passed, residents and visitors would pay an additional 2.5 cents on every $10 spent in Denver. Items like food, medical supplies, and feminine products would be exempt from the tax increase. 
This initiative will replace the energy tax that was placed on the ballot by Resilient Denver which recently changed their name to Climate Action Denver.  Members of Climate Action Denver served on the Climate Action Task Force and agreed to withdraw their initiative if City Council referred the sales tax. There was complete consensus on the task force that a sales tax increase was the best option for raising funds to support the City’s efforts to decrease the impact of climate change.
In order to keep equity at the center of climate action taken by the City, half of the funds will be used to support low-income and underserved communities. The measure states that the City “should, over the long term, endeavor to invest 50% of the dedicated funds directly in the community with a strong lens toward equity, race and social justice.”
“No matter where you live on this planet, the effects of climate change are real, they are happening right now, and they represent the greatest environmental threat to the security and well-being of our community, city and country,” Mayor Hancock said. “Thanks to Denver Public Health & Environment, Denver is a known and recognized leader in the fight against climate change. But the science tells us we must move even more aggressively.”
“We are facing a climate change crisis, and Denver must step up to do everything that we can to live up to our Paris Agreement promise, meet the science-based targets for greenhouse gas emission reductions, and protect the planet for future generations,” Council Representative Jolon Clark said.

COVID-19 |  Friendly suggestions from one of our HUNI Merchants

This email was shared by one of our community members who is in digital marketing. THIS IS NOT FROM HUNI (just wanted to share). He commented about reaching out to your business community:


Now is not the time to be silent. Some people are scared to act. Leaders get creative and act quickly.

Here are a few steps he suggested for those businesses to adapt and prepare: 

  1. Talk to your landlord to see if they can work with you (either by splitting up payments or lowering the rent for the month)

  2. Cut costs that are not an investment to grow your business - Rather than layoff employees, furlough them. Or, have them help you with #3 & #4 below

  3. Consider if your business needs to pivot to solve problems people are experiencing now (feeling isolated, need assistance with getting supplies in, or their source of income has stopped and they need to work from home)

  4. Figure out what parts of your business can get online & get it launched(don’t get distracted by how pretty it is or adding a complex feature, get it online and refine it as you go)

  5. Coronavirus Resource & Loan Options from Small Business Administration

  6. Facebook Small Business Grants Program - $100M in cash grants and ad credits to help during this challenging time and Amazon’s Neighborhood Small Business Relief Fund

  7. Once you’ve adapted & prepared your road map for getting online AND have launched the essentials (your website and a marketing strategy), reach out to your community and invest money in advertising (Google AdWords & Facebook) to drive traffic quickly
