GOOD NEIGHBOR UPDATES

Denver Days is August 4-12

Mayor Michael B. Hancock envisioned a city where neighbors not only knew their neighbors but as a result felt safer and more connected to the communities they call home.

Five years ago the Mayor turned that vision into reality by creating Denver Days, a program during the first week of August that encourages neighbors to get to know their neighbors by hosting block parties, picnics, and service projects with the focus on small, organic gatherings. Register your Denver Days event to receive help from the city planning and organizing your event. 

REMINDER: There is no CAB meeting at the District 3 Police Station for the month of August due to Denver Days events!
