Denver 2A through 2E will deliver infrastructure improvements that power our economic recovery and help the people who need it the most. Vote yes on 2A through 2E to create good paying jobs, provide shelter for people experiencing homelessness, and invest in historically underserved neighborhoods.
And we can do all of this while keeping your tax rates the same.
Measures 2A through 2E will address critical issues facing Denver and help get the city back to work. The ballot measures will fund 88 specific projects that target the most pressing concerns of Denver residents in the neighborhoods that need it most, as identified through a public input process that engaged thousands of Denver residents. Voting yes on 2A through 2E will create more than $1 billion of economic impact and 7,500 jobs and will save taxpayer money by repairing and improving Denver’s infrastructure before it breaks.
Measure 2D will create new parks in underserved communities, replace and add new amenities to existing parks, and build the infrastructure needed to care for our open space going forward. Measure 2D will:
• Construct new parks at University Hills and 47th & Walden. The construction of these parks will move Denver closer to the goal of having every Denver resident live within a 10-minute walk or bike ride of a quality park.
• Rebuild the Mestizo-Curtis Pool, which is the oldest pool in the Denver parks system and serves thousands of children and their families in the Five Points area. This project will protect this community gathering space and provide enhanced amenities to meet the needs of the neighborhood.
• Replace existing playgrounds at Harvey Park, Huston Lake Park, Dailey Park, and Crestmoor Park with newer, more diverse, and accessible playground equipment and amenities. This will construct accessible playgrounds for children with disabilities.
• Replace basketball courts, tennis courts, and baseball fields at 12 parks around Denver. During the pandemic, Denver’s outdoor spaces saw increased use, and 2D will fund new courts and fields to ensure that communities maintain access to recreational spaces and opportunities
• Renovate the Sloan’s Lake Boat House. The 6,000 square foot historical venue will be transformed into a space for community events and public programs. The Boat House will also integrate with the recently redeveloped jetty and marina, restoring access to the historical site.
• Improve and build new public restrooms and park maintenance facilities. These new and upgraded facilities will increase the functionality and quality of the recreation spaces across Denver, from pocket parks to community parks.
Measures 2A-2E are a result of input from residents across Denver, reflecting the need to address critical issues, create a more equitable city, and jumpstart the economy, all without raising taxes.
