Welcome Chris - thank you for doing this.

I am very concerned with the latest revision to zoning in Cherry Creek East that allows developers to increase zoning. It has resulted in much more rental units being built in our neighborhood and no for sale units.
Scott Zimmerman
24:35
Why does the Major have total control of the the Planning Commission. Shouldn't there be input from Council as to who is appointed? It appears that the Major has to much input into rezoning.
Luke Gordon
33:55
My previous question, which is the 1st one, is in reference Blueprint Denver and amendment to that plan.
Nancy Terry
39:34
You said the rezoning should be better than prior zoning. Could you remind me what the benefit actually is?

I still question the traffic studies and the number of new building provided parking on site. The cars will spill over into the neighborhood and traffic will be very congested. What is the current thought on this?
Glenn Kraft
41:19
The Town Center area marked in pink on p.73 is also marked as 3 stories max. What considerations might allow a tall building there? I own a duplex with a rooftop that has a view. This building will block my view. I am not allowed to add a small covered area on my rooftop. Yet, there are large buildings planned along Colorado Blvd behind me and now this new Madison-Bayaud area with a tall building in front of me. All of us planned on a livable, neighborhood. I had planned on a view.
Michael MacLauchlan
41:25
Are there any developers on any City of Denver zoning committees ? If so what influence do they have and recusal processes do they follow ?
Glenn Kraft
42:17
Homeless people will never live in this area. That reference is not applicable to our situation.
MALJo004
43:24
What is the calculation between new buildings and open space. We need more parks for people and dogs.
Greg Cudney
43:43
Glenn, We have homeless living along Cherry Creek and in CJ Burns Park, which bracket CCE
franlazarus
44:32
Why has not transportation infrastructure kept up with development? Or has it.
Glenn Kraft
45:34
Any CCE housing solution will not be affordable for homeless, is my point.
robin

Seems like there are a lot of blighted or older areas that would benefit from development more than downtown Cherry Creek? Wouldn't it make sense to incentivize developers to improve those areas? Abandoned buildings on Colorado Blvd., for example.
Lori Moskovsky
47:31
If there is no more green the developers will just go vertical as high as the can . They just change the zoning laws..
MALJo004
47:38
totally agree with Robins message.
Lori Moskovsky
48:10
I agree as well
MALJo004
48:40
How involved is the water department involved in the building process and approval process. We don't have lots of water.
Luke Gordon
50:05
A big part of the construction defects lawsuits was the way that the law was written it encouraged law firms to file class action law suits. For example the are other city that does not have issues we have. I think Seattle is one.
Lori Moskovsky
51:20
when they go into blighted areas, they just obliterate they neighborhood and bring in the high end rentals. No affordable housing ever!
Lori Moskovsky
51:57
if it is a great area, why insist on changing it?
robin
52:17
Much of your position seems to be, "here's what the zoning says." What if we don't like the zoning? What can be done to change it?
Lori Moskovsky
55:51
bet Broe is one
MALJo004
56:35
It seems like approvals for development are given before any infrastructure plans are in place. How many years will the gird lock be in place if we follow this approach.
Luke Gordon
58:59
Mayor Hancock gets substantial campaign financing from developers. For the mayor to appoint members on the planning board is a conflict of interest and should not be allowed.
dick farley

Chris, has CPD set up a meeting with you on the proposed Commercial Overlay?
Michael MacLauchlan
01:07:12
Given our traffic and pollution, wondering if it's time to end Denver's re-developing and increasing housing, and, rather, encourage growth and business to locate away from the front range -- Could Ft Morgan, Limon, Wray use the growth (assuming enough water) ? Perhaps its time to share the 'wealth' with those underdeveloped cities ?
Brooks Waldman
01:08:48
Chris, how can CCE best engage with Denver P&R on the future of Pulaski Park and proposed future changes to serve the neighborhood.
Brooks Waldman
01:15:53
Since some areas of CCE were indicated on the Cherry Creek Area Plan as "areas of change," wouldn't it make since for CPD to be engaged with the neighborhood to help refine what areas of change should be?
MALJo004
01:24:56
What is the parking ratio? Is it .5 spots per unit?
Julia B Bill T
01:28:03
If construction workers ignore the rule, what can we do?

Also on Alameda. They race.
MALJo004
01:41:30
Are any more open spaces or parks planned to make this area outdoor friendly. It also attracts families. And we need a dog park. So many dogs in CC.
Margot Wynkoop
01:43:49
Question on RTD and transit. There have been city efforts beyond RTD to improve Cherry Creek area transit, but they haven't thrived. Meanwhile, our RTD infrastructure is pretty weak and infrequent compared to Wash Park, where I used to live. Does City Council have a role in getting CCEA better mass transit.
Michael MacLauchlan

thank you all !
