FYI/Happenings Mayor's Response to Potential Deportation of Denver Mother Mayor Michael B. Hancock released a statement regarding the possible deportation of Denver mother Jeanette Vizguerra. “What’s happening to Jeanette Vizguerra is appalling and the result of a broken immigration system – a system made worse by the chaotic actions of the White House and ICE. Jeanette is not a threat to our community. She is a mother of four, an active community member, and someone who has persistently pursued legal status through the proper channels. She has now become the latest victim of wrongful enforcement actions, executive orders and policies coming out of Washington that are punishing immigrants, tearing apart families and scaring our communities. “Washington needs to issue Ms. Vizguerra the U-visa that has been caught up in bureaucracy for more than a year now. Washington needs to listen to the millions of people across this country who are telling them their actions are making our communities unsafe. Washington needs to stop driving families to seek asylum in churches, stop creating turmoil and stop inciting fear.” Mayor Hancock is advocating for the certification of Ms. Vizguerra’s pending U-visa application by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The City and County of Denver sup-

ported her application by signing an I-918 supplemental form in August of 2015. City and County of Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock Jenna.Espinoza@DenverGov.org 720.865.9044

Board of Education Resolves to Protect DPS Students After hearing from dozens of community members, the Board of Education unanimously approved “The Safe and Welcoming School District Resolution (English and Spanish),” which commits to providing “safe and welcoming spaces where all students are able to focus on their education, secure in the knowledge that the district will support their safety and emotional well-being regardless of immigration status.” The resolution states that any immigration law enforcement activities that take place at schools, on transportation routes, on Denver Public Schools’ (DPS) property or during school activities significantly interfere with students' Constitutional rights, including the Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures, and the Constitutional right to access a free public K-12 education.

“In light of recent local and national events surrounding immigration and refugees, DPS sought to address the ‘fear and uncertainty’ many of our students and families are experiencing,” said Board Member Lisa Flores. “There is great strength and solidarity in standing together as a community to protect the rights of our students, and I am proud to present this resolution.” The document states that DPS commits to “do everything in its lawful power to protect our students' confidential information and ensure that our students' learning environments are not disrupted by immigration enforcement actions.” It calls out several specific actions, including addressing that DPS does not and will not collect information on students' immigration status, and will not provide access to students without a valid search warrant. For more information call or visit: 720-423-3414, Fax 720-423-331 www.dpsk12.org

Immigrant Integration Grants Available The Denver Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs proudly announces that it is now accepting applications for 2017 Immigrant Integration Mini-Grants. Any organizations or groups seeking to conduct immigrant integration projects or activities are encouraged to apply for a $1000 grant. The grants will fund 10 new

projects as well as 10 continuing projects this year. Please visit www.denvergov.org/immigrantrefugeeaffairs for details and to apply.

From Michael Bennet, Colorado U.S. Senator In just his first month in office, President Trump and his allies have plunged the country into chaos and uncertainty, from issuing an unconscionable, shortsighted ban on refugees to moving forward with plans to dismantle health care for millions of Americans. It’s unacceptable. I’m doing everything I can in Washington to make real progress for Colorado families and all Americans, no matter what’s going on in the White House. But as this administration moves forward, I want to know what’s on your mind. Do you have a minute to take a short survey and tell me more about what matters to you? You can use this link: https://surveys. signforgood.com/BennetPrioritiesSurvey Thanks for taking the time, Michael Bennet

FYI/Happenings Modernizing Colorado's Water Systems Did you know that Colorado’s municipal water providers have been buying up local farm land in order to gain the additional water needed to supply our growing population with water? This practice, also know as “buy and dry,” is a primary source of water as cities grow. When combined with development pressure, Colorado has lost 850,000 acres – about 25% of the state’s irrigated farmland – to this practice already and is projected to lose another 20% in the years to come. The technology and policy in place to avoid situations like this. Most local farms don’t use all of the water they are allotted and most municipal water providers don’t need all of the water that they’re buying the rights for. That’s where a new, more flexible, system comes in: allowing farmers to lease some of their water to urban water providers -- allowing agricultural land to stay in production feeding local families. But these types of leasing arrangements are new and more complicated, and utilities are often understaffed and sometimes ingrained in tradition and haven’t taken steps forward to implement a system like this. Just as we go out of our way to support farmers at the farmers’ market, let’s support our farm neighbors when we turn on the tap. For more information go to info@waterforcolorado.org

Women's Press Club Presents Life Coach Lauren Ostrofsky Life coach Lauree Ostrofsky returns to the Denver Woman’s Press Club for a discussion on how to SIMPLY LEAP: Seven Lessons on Facing Fear and Enjoying the Crap out of Your Life from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. on March 28 at the Denver Women's Press Club, 1325 Logan St, Denver, CO 80203.

B-cycle Brings Back Annual Access Pass With the recent launch of its revamped website, denverbcycle. com, B-cycle also reintroduced Annual Access Pass, a feature that riders said they wanted back. For the first time, however, the Annual Access Pass now comes with two 24-hour guest passes that can be given to friends for use anytime throughout the year. “Our customers said they missed having the Annual Pass,” said Denver B-cycle executive director Nick Bohnenkamp. “We are happy to bring this membership option back with the value-added guest passes. We appreciated hearing from our riders on this issue.” There are two annual pass levels. At $95, an Annual Access Pass holder has unlimited free rides of 30 minutes in length. The $135 Annual Plus Pass includes an unlimited number of rides 60 minutes in length. Overtime fees are the same in both cases, $5 for each half-hour beyond the allotted grace period. Both passes include the two free 24-hour guest passes. Other rates include a 24-hour pass for $9, allowing unlimited 30-minute rides within one 24-hour period; a $15 annual “Flex” pass with a pay-as-yougo rate of $3 per half-hour of use; and a monthly pass ($15 per month) that allows unlimited half-hour rides with the standard $5 per half hour overtime rate after the first 30-minutes. The “Flex” pass comes with a keychain fob; the monthly and annual passes come with a wallet sized B-card. Find Denver B-cycle’s revamped website, at www.denverbcycle.com

DPS Helping Aspiring Teachers

Women are Increasing Percentage of U.S. Workers This Women’s History Month, it's worth taking a look at women’s contributions to the U.S. labor force. Here are some noteworthy statistics that are available. Women are integral to today’s workforce. There are 74.6 million women in the civilian labor force. Almost 47 percent of U.S. workers are women. More than 39 percent of women work in occupations where women make up at least three-quarters of the workforce. Women own close to 10 million businesses, accounting for $1.4 trillion in receipts. Female veterans tend to continue their service in the labor force: About 3 out of 10 serve their country as government workers. Working Moms are the Norm Seventy percent of mothers with children under 18 participate in the labor force, with over 75 percent employed full-time. Mothers are the primary or sole earners for 40 percent of households with children under 18 today, compared with 11 percent in 1960.

Trends in Women’s Employment Have Evolved over Time Women’s participation in the U.S. labor force has climbed since WWII: from 32.7 percent in 1948 to 56.8 percent in 2016. The proportion of women with college degrees in the labor force has almost quadrupled since 1970. More than 40 percent of women in the labor force had college degrees in 2016, compared with 11 percent in 1970. The range of occupations women workers hold has also expanded, with women making notable gains in professional and managerial occupations. In 2016, more than one in three lawyers was a woman compared to fewer than 1 in 10 in 1974. Despite these gains, women are still underrepresented in STEM occupations, with women’s share of computer workers actually declining since 1990. The unemployment rate for women is currently 4.8 percent, down from a peak of 9.0 percent in November 2010. Since 1920, the Women’s Bureau has been working to address the challenges and barriers unique to women in the labor force, and data plays an important role in helping to understand those challenges.

Mayor Hancock Launches National Search for Public Works Director Janine Davidson Named President of MSU Denver Board of Trustees Chair Michelle Lucero announced that Janine Davidson, Ph.D., will be the next president of Metropolitan State University of Denver. “Among the dozens of candidates who applied for this position, Dr. Davidson’s name kept rising to the top,” said Lucero. In interviews with the selection committee and campus stakeholder groups, she was described as ‘strategic,’ ‘dynamic,’ ‘collaborative,’ ‘high energy’ and ‘entrepreneurial,’ and those are just a few of the positive things said about her. "Our board members believe she will raise the profile of the institution both internally and externally.” "I was attracted to MSU Denver because of the progressive, entrepreneurial leadership that Dr. Steven M. Jordan and the Board of Trustees have displayed," said Davidson.

The City and County of Denver today launched a national search for the next leader of the Department of Public Works (DPW). Since the retirement announcement of Denver’s current executive director, Jose Cornejo, the Hancock administration has been gearing up for a far-reaching recruitment effort to identify an exceptional leader to serve in this critical role during a unique time for the city. “Jose has spent the last five years serving Denver residents with excellence and has shown true dedication to his role of overseeing crucial city services. We wish him all the best in his retirement,” Mayor Michael B. Hancock said. “As we embark on this process, Jose will remain in his role as Executive Director and I have every bit of confidence that his insights will help us find a leader who will bring the same commitment to providing the best possible city services, facilities and infrastructure.” ■ FYI Section continued on page 6

FYI/Happenings ■ FYI continued from page 5 Under Jose’s leadership, DPW has optimized the fleet department, which has saved the city $8 million, streamlined contracting and improved small, minority and women-owned business participation. In addition, the Transportation and Mobility Division was created and increased attention was focused on multi-modal streets, protected bike lanes, and pedestrian overpasses. DPW is also a lead in several Smart City pilot initiatives, including LED lights, environmental sensors, smart parking technology, and bus shelters. For the last several years, Denver has been one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, creating a number of exciting opportunities and an equal number of complex challenges. The entire metro area continues to grow by nearly 5,000 net new residents per month. As the economic, cultural and transportation hub of the region, Denver is experiencing a significant increase in demand for services and infrastructure improvements. With 1,300 employees and an operating budget of nearly $250 million,

Denver’s Department of Public Works is one of the city’s largest and most exciting departments. “Enhanced mobility choices, smart flood protection, sustainable waste management: Denver is on the hunt for a dynamic leader who brings the right balance of skill, knowledge and management expertise to ensure we are building a city not just for our people today but for generations to come,” the Mayor said. The Department's broad portfolio of responsibilities includes day-to-day transportation management, snow plowing, street maintenance, right-ofway enforcement, parking, planning and construction projects (small to very large, vertical and horizontal), trash and recycling, graffiti abatement, fleet management, and wastewater construction, among others. Much of the responsibility for meeting the service and infrastructure needs of today and tomorrow rest with the Department of Public Works, including implementation of a planned $600 million general obligation bond being considered for the November 2017 ballot.

Rendering of the planned Anna and John J. Sie Welcome Center at the DAM.

DAM Renovation to Provide New Entry The Denver Art Museum (DAM) announced that Anna and John J. Sie have pledged $12 million to support the construction of a new Welcome Center as part of its North Building revitalization project. The new space will be named the Anna and John J. Sie Welcome Center. Its transparent exterior will serve as a welcoming beacon to visitors and the neighborhood, while creating a clear and accessible point of entry to the North Building. The DAM’s North Building project was announced in December 2016 and aims to unify the museum’s campus and make key improvements to sustain its operation and relevance into the future. Designed by world-renowned Italian architect Gio Ponti and Denverbased James Sudler Associates, the North Building opened to the public in 1971 and houses the majority of the DAM’s permanent collection galleries. Its seven-story silhouette is celebrated as one of the first-ever high-rise art museums, and is the only completed building in North America designed by the Italian modernist. The new Anna and John J. Sie Welcome Center takes its inspiration from shapes and volumes originally designed by Ponti for the North Building. The elliptical two-story facility, collaboratively conceived by Fentress

Architects of Denver and Machado Silvetti of Boston, will visually connect the campus. The design pays clear homage to the original Ponti architecture while taking into account the unique landscape of the Golden Triangle Neighborhood in the heart of the city. At 50,000 square feet, it will be a significant feature for the museum and will include visitor-centric amenities such as a restaurant, quick-service café, improved ticketing and orientation capabilities, as well as dynamic and flexible program spaces, state-of-the-art event space and below-grade space for art storage and the Museum’s primary conservation lab. The Sie family and its foundation have generously contributed to many important museum initiatives, most notably the Frederic C. Hamilton Building Capital Campaign, the Annual Fund Leadership Campaign, the multiyear fund to support the exhibitions and programs of the museum.The North Building project is currently in the design phase. Plans call for construction to begin by the end of 2017, with project completion by the building’s 50th anniversary in 2021. More details on the design will be released as the project develops. http://denverartmuseum.org/article/ press-release/

Wining & Dining Colorado House Approves Later Bar Closing Times

Chef David Hadley Wins Chopped Award David Hadley, sous chef at The Preservery in RiNo, was the winning chef on Food Network's Chopped championship cook-off in February. "Wow! This validates my food journey and adds confidence in pursuing my foods and flavors. It's great for getting my name out as a chef in Denver and bringing attraction to our style of food and presentation at The Preservery. "THANKS to Mom and Dad, Grandma, Brendan, Obe and Whitney!" 3040 Blake St. (303) 298-6821 www.thepreservery.com

Colorado House members passed a bill that could allow bars to stay open past 2 a.m., despite the concerns of a variety of legislators, one of whom said the proposal could contribute to “moral rot.” House Bill 1123 — sponsored by Reps. Steve Lebsock, D-Thornton, and Dan Thurlow, R-Grand Junction — would allow local governments to decide whether to extend hours in which bars and restaurants can serve alcohol, a practice that is currently banned between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. throughout the state except in a few small areas such as gaming towns that are categorized as entertainment district backers argue that not only would the bill allow for more local control of businesses, but that it could aid law enforcement, which now has its hands full in places like downtown Denver when patrons empty from almost all of the bars at the same time. “Who are we to determine that 2 a.m. is the perfect arbitrary number?” asked Lebsock. “We are going to allow local governments, with coordination between their local law enforcement and their chambers and business communities, to determine what the appropriate time to close is.” HB 1123 divided House members in a bipartisan fashion, passing the

chamber on a vote of 38-27. Among Democrats, 20 favored the proposal while 17 opposed it. Republicans backed it in greater percentages, with 17 voting for it and 10 against it. Still, only Republicans spoke against HB 1123 on the House floor, airing concerns that it could increase incidences of drunk driving as bar patrons look to go to nearby towns with later bar closing times after leaving establishments in a neighboring city that may shut down earlier. Rep. Larry Liston, R-Colorado Springs, said that he opposed the measure not just because his local police chief and sheriff asked him to, but because he feels it could have a degrading effect on society. “To me this just kind of adds to the potential of moral rot, and I don’t think we need this,” Liston said. “We have the potential for real travesty.” The bill — a successor measure to one that was killed by its sponsor back in 2014— heads next to the Republican-majority Senate.

CHAC: Peace Through The Lens... An American Story

Robischon Gallery is pleased to present three, concurrent exhibitions featuring works by the highly-celebrated artist Kiki Smith, recognized filmmaker Stacey Steers and widely-exhibited artists Kahn + Selesnick. The visually poetic work of Smith, Steers and Kahn + Selesnick offers unique entry into complex, dream-like worlds where human, flora and fauna interrelate as myth and metaphor merge. Each featured innovative artist employs a multifaceted approach toward their practice. Whether through utilizing the means of sculpture, prints or textile, filmmaking, collage, drawing or photography, it is their shared visual sensibilities along with the marriage of handwork and sophisticated technologies which further unites the artists in their pursuit of the unexpected narrative. Jennifer Doran or Debra Demosthenes 303.298.7788, Fax: 303.298.7799, Email: debra@robischongallery.com

This will be one of the most important photographic exhibits CHAC has ever held. “We are expanding the viewing area and dedicating the entire gallery space to this exhibit,” says Crystal O’Brien, Executive director. Visitors will be viewing unique images in a new and alluring light. Some of the photographers are seasoned professionals with national and international recognition. What they all have in common, says curator Judy Miranda, “is a desire to share with the viewing public an intimate look into the lives and places that their images represent.” Visitors got their first look at the exhibit on Friday, March 3rd, 2017 when CHAC hosted an opening reception from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will be second CHAC reception on Friday, March 17, also from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The judge’s awards will be presented on that date and time.

Abend Gallery: Sight Unseen Artists have long created works based on the observations of what they see. "I am interested in sharing representational works that look beneath the realities of the surface and reveal a greater, hidden significance. These artists will be peering at the mercurial boundary between the known and the unknown. It is in this space, between the vibration of life, of existence thatcannot be seen but can be felt. How do you represent what you cannot see? How do you paint, draw or sculpt thought or emotion, the human spirit or the supernatural?" – Alia El-Bermani, curator.

Curious Theatre Presents "Building the Wall" On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Over the next six months, events would unravel that test every American’s strength of character: executive actions, an immigration round-up of unprecedented scale,

and a declaration of martial law. The main character finds himself caught up as the frontman of the new administration’s edicts and loses his humanity. In a play that harkens George Orwell’s 1984 and the Nazi regime, Building the Wall is a terrifying and gripping exploration of what happens if we let fear win. 1080 Acoma Street, Denver CO 80204 Box Office: 303-623-0524 www.curioustheatre.org

Access Gallery Revisits Picasso’s Guernica In the 80 years since Picasso painted his masterpiece Guernica, it has become one of the most recognizable works of art in the world. It is a symbol of resistance and a reminder of injustice in our world. Picasso’s aim was to convey the horrors of war—specifically, the 1937 German bombing of the small Basque village in northern Spain seen as a base for the Republican forces during the Spanish Civil War. The exhibit, 80 Years - Guernica Revisited, honors the original painting and the symbolic tradition it encompasses, while relating to modern injustices like disability rights, the plight of Syrian refugees and the challenges of deaf artists in the USA. The exhibit runs April 7-30. Access Gallery is located at 909 Santa Fe Drive. For information call 303777-0797 or visit www.accessgallery.org

Health is Wealth ADA Launches Website for Insulin Affordability The American Diabetes Association unveiled a new online hub - www.makeinsulinaffordable.org - as part of its Stand Up for Affordable Insulin Initiative, which was launched in November 2016. The site houses key resources, including the Association's national petition for insulin affordability. The Association's petition calls for all entities in the insulin supply chain to increase transparency and ensure that no person with diabetes is denied affordable insulin, and for Congress to hold hearings with these entities to identify the reasons for the dramatic increases in insulin prices and take action to protect Americans with diabetes. "Since mid-November, more than 150,000 people have signed our petition calling for urgent action by Congress and the insulin supply chain to make insulin affordable," said Immediate-Past President, Medicine & Science for the Association Desmond Schatz, MD. "This overwhelming response confirms this issue is a critical concern for the diabetes community and solidifies our commitment to ensuring insulin is affordable for all who need it." With the 115th Congress now in session, the launch of the makeinsulinaffordable.org site marks the latest step in the Association's efforts to urge Congress to hold hearings with all entities in the insulin supply chain. www.makeinsulinaffordable.org.

R e a l E state A House for Every Child By Steve Blank, Managing Broker

Liv Sotheby’s International Realty in Writer Square

Over the past 20 years, and particularly in the last four or five years, I have watched an increasing number of parents (and grandparents) purchase, or help their kids get started in real estate. The arrangements vary, but they recognize the benefits of teaching their children about home ownership and gaining that sense of responsibility. This is not spoiling them, it is being financially prudent. Some parents (and/or grandparents) pay cash for the home and have the adult kids pay them monthly interest and home maintenance. In many cases they provide a down payment sufficient enough for the kids to obtain conventional financing. Most parents encourage their kids to save, and home ownership accelerates their ability to accomplish that ambition. Many younger people earn decent salaries, but if they live in most metropolitan cities (Denver included), they pay significant monies in rent and find it quite challenging to save the down payment. The combination of good salaries and paying rent will equate to spending tens of thousands of dollars without enjoying the tax deductions for real estate taxes and mortgage interest (which is the high majority of the monthly payments). Kids mature when buying with their parents and learn to properly maintain a home, gain a pride of ownership, and appreciate the responsibilities and value of money. Meanwhile, parents may enjoy the benefits of a new connection with their children and may experience the pleasure and value of helping their kids while they're still around rather than have them just receiving an inheritance. And maybe the largest advantage is that a property is a tangible asset with long term tradeable value, and perhaps several times over in the future. Last year I helped my youngest son with a down payment to purchase a condo in LA. He was paying a hefty monthly rent

for a studio apartment and wanted to buy a one bedroom. UNITING After learning that market, it made the most extraordinary sense to buy a two bedroom, get a roommate (learning a little bit properties about WITH being a landlord as well) and we were able to cut his monthly extraordinary housing out-lay by nearly half. lives ONE OF DENVER'S PRODUCERS, Most people may notCONSIDERED know (or remember) the TOP average FEW PEOPLE KNOW DOWNTOWN DENVER REAL ESTATE price of a home in metro-Denver in 1983 was $80,000.

May Is Best Month For Listing Your Home Knowing when to list your home could enable you to sell it faster and at a higher price, according to new Zillow Research Best Time To List Analysis, March 2017. Listing a home toward the end of spring significantly increases your chances of this happening. The analysis indicates that in twenty of the largest national metropolitan housing markets, the best time to put a home on the market is April or May. In the Denver market, the best listing time is May - and particularly, the first through the fifteenth of the month. In this time frame, the data shows that Denver homes sold 8 days faster than average and at a 1.7 percent average sales premium - $5,600. Nationally, in markets with lower numbers of homes on the market, the ideal time to list may be pushed further into the spring. By May, disappointment of the lower market numbers, combined with buyer desire to get settled quickly into a new home before the new school year, increases willingness to pay a premium to close a deal.

Denver Rental Housing Market Update Denver is only one of three markets in the country where a recent real estate economic study say it's better to rent a home than to buy one. Nationally, Denver, Dallas and Houston are the markets where a national index produced by Florida Atlantic University and Florida International University faculty indicate that it's better to rent than buy Denver recorded a score on the university's Beracha, Hardin & Johnson Buy vs. Rent Index that was "worrisome in terms of local housing market conditions." “The scores for Dallas, Denver and Houston have worried us for some time now. The last time we saw scores of this magnitude, housing market crashes soon followed," said one of the university's researchers. The index uses data from the S&P/ Case-Shiller Home Price Index, and then adds additional rental, maintenance and alternative investment data streams, to determine if it's better to own a home or rent in a market. In the latest S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index, Denver home prices showed big gains over the previous year, but added that "questions about whether this is a normal housing market or if prices could be heading for a fall are natural."

Mile High Connects Wins Community Planning Grant Mile High Connects announced that Denver was selected to join the Strong, Prosperous, And Resilient Communities Challenge (SPARCC), a three-year, $90 million initiative that will bolster local groups and leaders in their efforts to ensure that, as major new investments are made in community development, they improve equity, health, and environmental outcomes for all residents. The Denver Metro region is experiencing unprecedented growth, creating development opportunities, as well as significant gentrification and displacement in the urban core. The award from SPARCC will enable the region to harness this energy and ensure that development equally benefits low-income communities and communities of color. "This is an incredible opportunity that will help the Denver Metro region think creatively about equity, health, and climate under the leadership of Mile High Connects,” said Christine Márquez-Hudson, president and CEO of The Denver Foundation."

Designed by Denver-based award-winning architect Davis Partnership Architects, the building will be built by Swinerton Builders, with a completion date of late 2018. “Early last year, we identified significant unmet demand for high quality health care in Cherry Creek. We conceived and designed a worldclass medical office building to fit the neighborhood. 100 Cook addresses the key factors to success in this urban location: premier quality and construction, ample parking, and convenience.
