Denver’s Council District 3 is the heart of West and Southwest Denver. The district is comprised of 8 neighborhoods consisting of Villa Park, Barnum, Barnum West, Westwood, Mar Lee, Athmar Park, Valverde, and Ruby Hill (Godsman). Despite its close proximity and connectivity to downtown, each neighborhood has its own community feel; families gathered in backyard barbecues, youngsters rehearsing for quincerñeras, children chasing the ringing bells of paleteros, and elders enjoying it all from their porch. From many of our neighborhood amenities and the newly completed West Rail Line, one can enjoy the beautiful views of the Denver Skyline as well as the majestic Rocky Mountains. West Denver is home to many different cultural communities, which is best exemplified by the many unique mom and pop shops that line Federal Boulevard including some of the finest, authentic Asian and Mexican cuisine and shopping found in the city. You’ll hear music from every car, singing from every home, and while biking through Morrison Road, you’ll see unique artwork on every corner.
Since taking office in 2007, Councilman López has fiercely championed this cause, working closely with the Vidal and Hancock administrations. Mayor Hancock included the alley paving in both the 2012 and 2013 budgets. Of the 180 eligible alleys in Denver, 44 are in District 3; the first phase of paving included paving14 of the 44 eligible alleys in District 3.
Other improvements that we can look forward to include additional park space in Barnum Park East and improved entrance access to US 6 going east from Federal. Our office will continue to work with CDOT to ensure that many of those jobs come to the residents of the neighborhoods that will be most affected.
As always, this is dangerous work and CDOT would like to remind motorists to obey all construction signs, flaggers and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
