Denver Moves: Cherry Creek

Denver Moves: Cherry Creek is a year-long planning effort to develop a cohesive strategy for infrastructure development that achieves the City’s mobility goals in the Cherry Creek neighborhood and surrounding area. The project will explore improvements to make it safer and more convenient to walk, bicycle, take transit, deliver goods, and drive in and around the area, and will also examine green infrastructure, parking, curbside uses, and other considerations.  For more information on this initiative, visit the City of Denver website.

Garfield St. Neighborhood Bikeway
Posted on Jun 1st, 2022
Garfield St Neighborhood Bikeway:  Through the Denver Moves planning process, Department of Transportation and Infrastructure has identified the Garfield Street corridor for development as a neighborhood bikeway to prioritize multi-modal north/south movement between City Park and the Cherry Creek Trail.  When fully constructed, the Neighborhood Bikeway will link key business destinations to neighborhoods, provide active living opportunities to families, strengthen neighborhood character, encourage mode share change along the corridor, and work toward Vision Zero safety goals. 
Cherry Creek East Zoning Overlay
Posted on Jul 1st, 2021
(Updated June 21, 2022)
 
How it all began...Beginning in May 2018, then District 10 Councilman Wayne New, initiated a Commercial and Residential Overlay Process. It was believed that an overlay – once approved by City Council into law – would be more effective and efficient than a design committee to sustain future development guidelines in Cherry Creek East. The city funded $10,000 for consultants to assist the Cherry Creek East Association Board and its Development Committee with the process.  Over the last four years hundreds of hours were spent creating two overlays.  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 16, 2021 and a community survey was conducted on July 1, 2021.  Currently, the zoning overlay is with the city for review.  You will find details on the overlays, meeting presentations and survey results in the Development Committee section of our website.  
 
Where are we today?...On June 1, 2022, Community Planning and Development (CPD) staff presented the overlays to members of Denver Planning Board. Some members could not differentiate Cherry Creek North from East and there were many inquiries about portability of the overlay to other neighborhoods and equity. 
 
If you support the CCE Overlays; we need your help!  Please consider writing to Councilman Hinds and CPD your support of the CCE Overlays.  City Council and Panning Board listen to and are influenced by the written word, much more than emails, surveys, and phone calls.  Click here for discussion points, sample letter of support and mailing address.
Ellsworth Storm Project Update
Posted on Jul 1st, 2021
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.  
 
June 2022 UPDATE:  The City of Denver construction management team and contractor should have Phase I of the Ellsworth Avenue Storm Project completed by July 2022.  Phase 2 of the Ellsworth Storm project will begin where Phase 1 left off on Ellsworth Ave just west of Madison St and continue east to Garfield St.  Phase II is currently in the design phase with expectations to have a contractor selected by Winter 2022.  
 
What to expect between now and onset of phase II?  Residents will see utility relocation activity in the general vicinity of Ellsworth Ave.  
 
For complete information from the City of Denver on this project you may visit their website or the The City of Denver project information sheet.

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.

For the less common city powered lights often set on power poles at intersections, call 311.
