Councilman Paul Lopez, along with long time Westwood Residents, Fern Veasman and Robert Duran thanked Denver Public Works Street Maintenance crews as they paved dirt alleys in the Westwood neighborhood. The alleys are part of a 5 year long, $1.8 Million effort to pave 186 "undedicated" dirt alleys citywide. Prior to this , Mrs. Veasman's alley had not been touched by asphalt in more than 60 years.
"After years of working on this issue, I'm glad someone finally paid attention to our neighborhood needs. My husband worked tirelessly on this issue and I wish he was around to see this" said Mrs. Veasman to the Councilman and the crew.
