Council District 10
Councilwoman Robb is the chair of Council's Land Use, Transportation, and Infrastructure committee and is a member of Council's Government and Finance committee, and Special Issues committee: National Western Stock Show and Redistricting.
She has served as chairperson of Blueprint Denver – the Council’s land use committee. She was instrumental in the creation of Main Street Zoning, the Colorado Colfax Marathon, new drive-through restaurant regulations, tighter panhandling ordinances, demolition review of potentially historic structures, and the Justice Center design and public process. For her work, she has been recognized 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 Robb 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 have 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. She is an advocate for good urban design, great streets, wide sidewalks, and public spaces like Fillmore Plaza and Civic Center Park.
A resident of Denver’s District 10 for over 25 years, Jeanne Robb was elected to City Council in 2003. She joined the Council with a passion for Denver’s neighborhoods and our built environment. She brings a wide range of knowledge about city issues and processes.
While serving on City Council is her first experience as an elected official, she’s been at it for a while now!
For ten years (1980 – 1990) Jeanne ran her own business as a writing consultant and instructor. Despite her momentous achievements, Robb is proudest that she raised three great kids – two of whom live in Denver and one who recently moved to Florida.
