Cherry Creek East Zoning Overlay
Posted on Jul 1st, 2021
The Cherry Creek East Association (CCEA) Development Committee has been working on a zoning overlay for the past couple of years. The Zoning Overlay is an incremental addition to the current city zoning. Consequently, if and when it is approved, this becomes a part of the Zoning code for the area. Zoning overlays have been applied or are in process in other Denver communities. Here is more information on why we want a zoning overlay in our community. Why we want a commercial overlay plan in CCE.  
CCEA hosted a community meeting on February 17, 2021.  Here is the link to that presentation 2021 Cherry Creek East Zoning Overlay Plan Presentation.  A community survey was conducted on July 1, 2021.  Currently, the zoning overlay is with the city for review.  
Ellsworth Storm Project Update
Posted on Jul 1st, 2021
City and County of Denver is about to start phase 1 of a storm water drainage project on Ellsworth.  This project will extend from Steele St. to Cook St. Residents and businesses along Ellsworth have been notified, along with Councilman Hinds.  The project is designed to help improve storm water quality and water drainage issues through the use of green infrastructures. These green infrastructures will be installed at each intersection along Ellsworth.  More information is HERE.  
This project is scheduled to begin early August at Steele St. and move east along Ellsworth

Gates Tennis Center Solar Project
Posted on Jan 31st, 2021
The Renewable Denver Community Solar Program is structured to advance Denver’s climate and community objectives, all at no up-front cost and a net savings to taxpayers. It has the potential to achieve multiple benefits including:
  • Rapid decarbonization of the electric system via up to 15 MW of solar projects (avoiding more than 15,000 metric tons of CO2 annually).
  • Distribution across approximately 30 geographically and socio-economically diverse sites throughout Denver.
  • Power sharing between city facilities, low-income housing, and local residents.
  • New workforce training and student education programs.
Here is information about the project: Gates Solar Initiative
Pedestrian Lights in Cherry Creek East
Posted on Jul 9th, 2020
Periodically, someone will ask how they can buy, repair or get a bulb for one of the ubiquitous domed streetlights that are not managed by the city. These are typically made of black painted steel with a domed, traditional looking "London" streetlight top and can be seen mostly on streets east of Madison. While some are on corners, many are placed mid-block. Electricity for most of these is provided by adjacent homeowners and not the City of Denver. If you need a replacement bulb or repair, CCEA has used this Company:

Contractor we used on South Monroe was Radiant Lighting Services.    https://radiantlightingservices.com/ 303-429-3326

Print, clip or save this post if one exists in front of or adjacent to your property. Please share with your neighbors.
