When I moved to Denver and rented at The Seasons, I spent weekends that year on my bicycle exploring various neighborhoods.  I selected Cherry Creek East (CCE) to buy my home as an upscale, compact, well developed, connected neighborhood.  After I became active in the Cherry Creek East Association RNO (CCEA) a group of our neighbors created the Cherry Creek Area Plan then steered that plan through adoption by the Denver City Council. That excellent plan was adopted in tact into Blueprint Denver 2040.  I support both plans as written.
 
Currently, I work mobility issues as an adjunct to the CCEA Board and wish to continue in that roll as a Board member.  I look forward to joining Barry Lazarus when we bike the Garfield Neighborhood Bikeway in the next two years…after six years of work.  As a graduate of the Denver Regional Council of Government’s Citizens Academy and with formal zoning training (albeit in Minnesota), I work with Bill Tanner in the Development Committee.  I have the time and inclination to work for the future of our neighborhood.

Bill has headed the CCEA development committee for the past three years. He is committed to giving all CCE residents  a voice in the development of their community.
 
Bill and the Development Committee team created a process for developers to follow whenever they want a rezoning. The process includes community meetings and surveys so that residents can voice their perspectives of the planned development and CCE gets developers' agreements that include those perspectives. Bill and the development Committee have also outlined a zoning overlay based on community feedback. If approved by City Council, the overlay will ensure that developers are held to building standards that the community wants. 
 
Supported by the Development Committee, if elected, Bill will continue to listen to you and look after the interests of CCE.

Hello, my name is Cecilia Ortega Lagos, and I am honored to put my name down as a candidate for the Cherry Creek East Board Association. I moved to Cherry Creek East in the fall of 2018 and immediately joined the association. Through my participation in Cellar Dwellers, Singles Club, and Women’s Wine Club, I have met many wonderful neighbors. I have also been a “Neighborhood Watch Lead’ for the past two years. 
 
I have more than 25 years of experience successfully leading strategic and technical business initiatives with proven expertise in project management, program portfolio management, vendor management, profit and loss, and infrastructure management, covering full life-cycle application development and integration rollouts.  I also have extensive experience navigating complex and diverse business environments defining, managing, and executing business transformation and change programs. 
 
I see Cherry Creek East as a hidden gem, and I am passionate about ensuring we keep it as such. There are many initiatives in our community, from safety, new zoning developments, solar projects, and group living amendments. I believe we need to stay on top of these initiatives to ensure the best-kept secret that CCE is, remains that way. Through my professional experience, I have gained the skills and qualities essential to assist the CCE Board on successful governance and operations, ensuring I can represent the CCE association to the best of my abilities. 
 
On a personal note, I was born in Santiago, Chile, and moved to Denver, Colorado, in the early ‘80s. I have two beautiful puppies who you will see roaming the neighborhood, and many would say Oliver is a watchdog, all 8lbs of him! Lily is 13 years old and loves her walks. I am currently obtaining a business Ph.D. at the University of Denver. When not walking Lily and Oliver, studying, or working, you will find me playing tennis, instructing a workout class called Palango, and most recently enjoying my new Peloton! I hope you consider me for the position.
 
Best, 
Cecilia Ortega Lagos

I was in public accounting for 20 years both with an accounting firm and leading my own
company. I serve as Treasurer of Cherry Creek East Association. 

My goal is to maintain Cherry Creek East as a vibrant residential neighborhood.  Commercial
development must be well integrated.  Condo development rather than apartments is
preferred. As an avid cyclist, more bike lanes and safer road sharing is a must.
