Update on G Line Commuter Rail

The G line of the RTD commuter rail line which will stop at the new 41st and Fox station was set to open at the end of October.  However, due to problems with with the software controlling the crossing gates at intersections along the already-running A and the B lines, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has said it won’t allow testing on the G Line until the problems are corrected on the A and the B Lines.

We are looking forward to celebrating the opening of the rail line next year!

No PCD Committee Meeting Tonight (2/11/2016)!

Hello Everyone!

Just a reminder, we are not going to have a PCD Committee Meeting this month as there are no issues that need immediate attention.  I will send out an update soon just to keep everyone in the loop.  Next meeting is March 11th at 7pm.  Site is to be determined.
We are looking for people to serve as voting members on this committee (not just interested neighbors!)  The only requirements are that you attend 80% of the meetings throughout the year and also to pick something about Sunnyside that you feel needs some improvement and devote a bit of time to that interest.  Things like beautification, traffic and transportation, zoning and development, etc.  This involvement may involve doing some research on a topic and presenting at the meetings, organizing a group of neighbors for things like a clean-up project (if you are that ambitious!), etc.  Those sort of things.  This committee is just getting back up and running, so there is plenty of room for ideas!  Committee Members will get voting privileges at the meetings (or by email if a quorum is not met at a meeting).  This is a great way to get involved with your neighborhood (and on occasion see how it fits in the big picture of Denver as a whole) and keep Sunnyside an amazing place to call home!
Thank you all for your time.  I’m looking forward to working with all of you and making this a productive committee!
Have a great night!
Mark Stroh, PCD Committee Chair

The Planning and Community Development (PCD) Committee is starting again January 14!

For anyone interested in planning and development issues (zoning, design standards, liquor and marijuana licenses, new business Good Neighbor Agreements, etc.), please plan to attend our monthly PCD Committee meetings.  You will hear about current issues, have a chance to ask questions, and meet fellow concerned neighbors.

The meetings will be held on the 2nd Thursday of the month at the Denver Police District 1 building in the Community Room (first floor – 46th Ave and Navajo).

REMINDER September PCD Meeting Tomorrow

Sunnyside Residents and PCD Members,

This is a reminder for our September monthly meeting which will take place in the Community Room of Police District One tomorrow starting at 7 PM. Address: 1311 W 46th Ave, Denver, CO 80211

This will be a continuation of the Interstate 70 Expansion discussion that could affect all of Northwest Denver if CDOT ever chose to widen the I-70 West of I-25. At our August PCD meeting, we heard from opponents of widening I-70 and the unanswered questions they had for CDOT and the City.  Tomorrow’s meeting is with CDOT, Mayor Hancock’s Northwest Denver Cornerstone Collaborative and representatives from Denver where we hope to hear answers to those unanswered questions.

This should be a lively and informative meeting. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow at DPD1, 7PM – Community Room.

Thank you,
Eugene
