Council District 10
In her third and final term on Denver City Council, Councilwoman Jeanne Robb serves on the Neighborhood and Planning Committee, the Infrastructure and Culture Committee, and the Government and Technology committee. She is Council’s representative to the Better Denver Bond Executive Committee, the City-wide Special Events Policy Working Group, the Commission to End homelessness, and the Shared Economy Task Force.
Councilwoman Robb served as chairperson of Blueprint Denver (the Council’s land use committee) from 2003–2008; president of City Council from 2008-2010; and chair of the Land Use,Transportation, and Infrastructure Committee from 2010-2014. She has been instrumental in the Justice Center design and public process, creating Main Street Zoning, the Colorado Colfax Marathon, new drive-through restaurant regulations, tighter panhandling ordinances, demolition review of potentially historic structures, and limits on the number of marijuana plants in residences. She is especially excited about the upcoming construction of the Central Denver Recreation Center to be located at Colfax and Josephine, and the new re-development of the former CU Health Sciences Center. Both projects will break ground in 2015. Jeanne has been recognized for her work with the Molly Brown Award from Historic Denver and the Woman of Vision award from the Commercial Real Estate Women.
Before serving on Council, Jeanne served as a neighborhood president, chair of the Cherry Creek Steering Committee, president of the Temple Events Center Uptown board, and on the boards of Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods, Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation, and the Denver Health Foundation. Years of civic involvement has fueled her passion for city life and the quality of our urban environment. She believes Denver must preserve and further maintain our urban legacies, including our close-in residential neighborhoods as well as our parks and parkways, and is an advocate for good urban design, great streets, wide sidewalks, and active public spaces. A resident of Denver’s District 10 for 35 years, Jeanne was first elected to public office in 2003. Prior to serving on Council, she worked as a English teacher and free-lanced as a business writing consultant from 1980-1990. She joined the Council with a passion for Denver’s neighborhoods and our built environment and brings a wide range of knowledge about city issues and processes.
In rare free moments away from the work of Council, Councilwoman Robb enjoys spending time with her three grown children, who are pursuing their careers and raising families in the great City and County of Denver – none of whom reside in District 10!
