PROGRESSIVE CHAMPION

Mayor Hancock Releases Statement Following State of the Union Address Mayor Michael B. Hancock released the following statement in reaction to President Trump’s State of the Union Address. “The President’s address was simply disappointing. At a time when our country can be and is united behind common sense solutions to immigration reform, finally improving our aging infrastructure and more, this President offered nothing but empty words and selfcongratulatory pats on the back for an economic recovery he had no part in. “Last week, my fellow mayors and I met to discuss the changing needs of our cities. We talked about what we need to do to increase economic opportunities, support all our residents and prioritize the smart infrastructure investments that our country needs to keep us strong and competitive. But that work can’t be done without a Congress and White House willing to make investments and come to the table. We didn’t hear any of that from the President tonight. “What we heard is that tax cuts for the wealthy will supposedly cure all our economic problems. An infra-

structure “plan” without any direction or specifics that leaves state and local governments holding the bag. A call for immigration reform based on fear and that does nothing to address the mess he created for our DREAMers. An energy policy that removes the United States from a leadership role on addressing climate change. And platitudes when it comes to the challenges of the opioid crisis. Our country and the American people deserve better than this. And where the President refuses to lead, cities like Denver will step up to do what must be done to keep the United States moving forward.”

DeGette Slams Budget Crisis, Bill Omitting Priorities and DACA Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-CO), Chief Deputy Whip, issued the following statement after voting against the “Bipartisan Budget Act” .: "Under its current Republican leadership, Congress has lurched from crisis to crisis over the federal budget since this fiscal year started in October, voting five times for stopgap spending bills and shutting down the government twice. "It's a disgrace, and these repeated, wasteful failures have left the government abused by congressional fecklessness and important priorities still unaddressed. Among them is finding a solution for Dreamers. A deadline looms there too: In less than a month, even more of these young men and women will lose their DACA protections and face deportation from the only country that most have ever known. They are integral members of our communities in Colorado and across the land, many serving in the armed forces, studying at universities, starting local businesses and taking part in civic life; we cannot let them down.” For more information on this subject contact Lynne.Weil@mail.house.gov

DeGette: DHS Has No Right or Reason to Separate Families Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-CO), Chief Deputy Whip, joined 74 Democratic House members in sending a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen expressing profound concern with the Department of Homeland Security's practice of separating immigrant families, both in the United States and at the border. Numerous studies and stories have shown this practice traumatizes those seeking humanitarian relief and limits their ability to lawfully pursue legal relief. The effort was led by Reps. Lucille Roybal-Allard and Pramila Jayapal, Co-Chairs of the Women’s Working Group on Immigration Reform, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security, and Rep.

4

Zoe Lofgren, Ranking Member of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. The letter urges U.S. Immigrations and Customs enforcement (ICE) at DHS to immediately clarify current policies and to reverse any established or de facto policies that undermine the ability of those seeking humanitarian relief to pursue protection or result in the needless separation of and harm to families. “Separating children from their parents is unconscionable and contradicts the most basic of American family values. Moreover, the reported justification of this practice as a deterrent to family migration suggests a lack of understanding about the violence many families are fleeing in their home countries. More pointedly, the pretext of deterrence is not a legally sufficient basis for separating families,” DeGette and the members wrote. “We are deeply disturbed by reports that the practice of separating families is increasing. Two recent complaints filed with DHS oversight components, the Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties and the Office of Inspector General, illustrate that DHS appears to be intentionally separating families for purposes of deterrence and punishment.” “We believe that separation is especially unnecessary given that ICE can and should turn to humane, less costly alternatives to detention, such as the Family Case Management Program, which ICE prematurely terminated after only one year of a five year pilot. Rather than protecting the best interests of the child, practices that punish and deter immigrant families violate fundamental domestic and international principles of family unity and are inconsistent with numerous U.S. child welfare and refugee laws and obligations.” For more information about this subjsect please contact Lynne.Weil@mail.house.gov

Thursday Night Bazaar at Stanley Marketplace starting March 1st ever we pop up. We both curate vendor village needs for other festivals, events and operate our own marketplaces. Denver Bazaar brings the best of urban culture together for a high energy, fun and successful experience. About Stanley Marketplace First open in December 2016, Stanley is no ordinary marketplace. Located in northwest Aurora on the border of Denver’s Stapleton neighborhood, Stanley Marketplace is a community of like-minded businesses and people who believe in doing things differently: sustainably, creatively and with more than the bottom line in mind. The more than 22-acre, 100,000 sq. ft. indoor/outdoor space was once Stanley Aviation headquarters, where airplane ejector seats were engineered and manufactured; now it is an adaptive reuse community hub, home to a food hall, retail shops, co-working space, and more. Today, the same innovative spirit that once filled this building has been harnessed to offer community members an urban marketplace featuring goods and services from local and independent businesses, as well as a robust philanthropic and community outreach program.

Mile High? New Name for Broncos' Stadium Mile High Stadium has been home to the Denver Broncos since 1962. Next summer, a new stadium name will take its place, financed primarily by a sales tax. But there’s a dilemma; what to call the new stadium. “Clearly, the public sentiment was strong for keeping the name Mile High,” said Tim Romani, executive director Metro Stadium District. “But also the public sentiment was strong to reduce the taxpayer debt.” And one way to do that is to sell the naming rights to a corporation for millions of dollars. San Diego did it, and now it has Qualcomm stadium. Indiana’s old Hoosier Dome is now the RCA Dome. San Francisco’s Candlestick Park became 3Com Park. But this is Denver, where the words

“Mile High” represent an entire culture. Just ask the mayor.“ When you say ‘Mile High Stadium,’ you think of a city a mile high,” said former Mayor Wellington Webb. “You think of the mountains. You think of skiing. You think of the Broncos.” Webb has joined forces with a citizens group fighting to retain the old name, even if it means forfeiting as much as $89 million. Colorado governor Hickenlooper, former restaurateur, decided to lead the charge after hearing so many of his customers complaining. “Do we sell Pike’s Peak?” Hickenlooper asked. “Is everything for sale? Certain traditions should be preserved in this city. Not everything is for sale.” Because the stadium is publicly financed, the stadium commissioners are required to consider public sentiment regarding the naming rights. According to a recent poll, 64 percent of area residents want to keep the old name, even if it means paying as much as $30 more a year in sales tax. Negotiations with corporations have stalled because of the controversy. But some officials hold out hope that a company could be persuaded to invest without changing the name.“What they’d get out of it is that everyone in Denver and Colorado — fans of Mile High Stadium — would love them,” said Webb. A tough sell, perhaps, but Bronco fans are used to hanging tough.

RTD Redesign 16th Street Mall Public Input The City and County of Denver and the Regional Transportation District (RTD) are recommending a design for reconstruction of the 16th Street Mall that would expand sidewalks for walking, café seating and other activities, and move transit lanes to the center or offset-center of each block. These updates are designed to enhance the Mall experience for visitors while improving pedestrian safety and mobility on the city’s most transit-rich street. The proposed design would update and modernize the Mall’s deteriorating infrastructure, while honoring its iconic look. It is a modified version of one of the options released in October 2017, refined this winter based on input from downtown workers, Mall businesses and the broader community Mall reconstruction will involve repairing and replacing the compromised sub-layer. It will therefore provide an opportunity to modernize and add to underground utilities (drainage, fiber, data, electric, etc.), which have been unreachable since 1982 when the street was constructed. This spring, Mall partners will publish an environmental assessment on the proposed action and

its benefits and impacts. If the project is approved, phased reconstruction would begin in 2019 or early 2020 and finish in 2022. Public Input Opportunities On March 8, 2018, the city and RTD will host open houses where the public can learn more, ask questions and give input on future refinement of the design. Identical open house events will be offered at the following times: 16th Street Mall Design Open Houses March 8, 2018 Noon - 1 p.m. or 5 - 6 p.m. RTD Board Room 1660 Blake Street, Denver Note: The public will have an opportunity to provide input on additional amenities and design features, and learn about construction activities, at an additional public hearing tentatively planned for May 2018.

Arts LoDown Side Stories // RiNo Runs Feb. 21 - Mar. 2

RiNo Art District's exterior walls to come to life with short films in first-ever “Side Stories” event: Feb. 21–Mar. 2, from 6–10pm The RiNo Art District’s buildings will come to life for ten winter nights in Side Stories // RiNo, a large-format outdoor film installation on the urban exterior from Feb. 21-March 2, 2018. This immersive event will project digital works from ten Colorado artists onto outdoor walls in EastRiNo, creating a walkable art experience through the neighborhood. The Side Stories website will provide an augmented reality, allowing visitors to follow an interactive map and audio tour of the event, complete with historical RiNo highlights and blockby-block suggestions about where to stop for a warm drink and a bite to eat or to shop along the way. A printed version of the installation will also be available. Side Stories is free to the public. Location Map and Guide coming soon to the RiNo Art District website!

Each participating artist was matched with a unique exterior wall and received a $5,000 grant to create a site-specific, 3‐5 minute film loop inspired by RiNo’s historic neighborhoods. Film genres include live action, documentary, historical, motion graphics, animation and experimental. “Side Stories supports local artists, enlivens a neighborhood and small businesses during winter evenings, and creates an experience to encounter art while exploring our city,” said Fiona Arnold, president of Mainspring Developers, who had the initial idea for Side Stories. “Our goal is to combine all three elements together in a new way that we hope will be interesting, inspiring and just plain fun.” Side Stories // RiNo will launch as a partnership between Mainspring Developers; Mary Lester/Martin Family Foundation; RiNo Art District; the Colorado Office of Film, Television, & Media; and the Denver Film Society. “I'm thrilled to be a part of a project that clearly connects art and community and has such broad appeal,” said Mary Lester. “I look forward to helping make Side Stories a hit this February and in the future.” Side Stories will have its inaugural event in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood, specifically in EastRiNo, from Broadway to 36th Street and Blake Street to Larimer Street. Visi-

tors are encouraged to bring their smartphones, earphones, and a sense of adventure and come see RiNo in a whole new way. “It's a priority for us to support different artists and art forms while activating our neighborhood and small business,” said Jamie Licko, president of RiNo Art District. “We're excited to host the first-ever Side Stories!” Side Stories // RiNo artists include Postmodern, Futuristic Films, Gary Emrich, Ivar Zeile (Denver Digerati), CU Denver Student & Faculty Collaboration, David Zimmer, HaveyPro Cinema, The Made Shop, Mighteor, and Studio Hippo.

Ganja Yoga? Entrepreneur Hopes to Open Nation’s First Legal Cannabis Spa In Denver, She calls it Utopia. A place where members can participate in yoga, get massages and legally consume cannabis. Cindy Sovine hopes Denver city officials will also see her vision for 1244 Grant

Street when she turned in her “social consumption” application. In 2016, Denver voters passed I-300, a measure to allow businesses the chance to permit marijuana use on their premises. Sovine’s “Utopia All Natural Wellness Spa and Lounge” will not sell marijuana. But, it will offer “consumption areas” for members who are over 21 years old to use marijuana. In addition to THC infused massage, Utopia plans to offer acupuncture, meditation and a full-line of hemp products and natural cosmetics. Sovine says she got the idea when her father fought cancer. She wanted to create a social outlet for medical marijuana patients who are often isolated from each other. “It’s a way of being able to help patients access treatment services,” she said, “But also access each other and share what they are using and how it makes them feel.” As part of the application process, social consumption applicants are required to get support from a Registered Neighborhood Association. Sovine and Utopia got five neighborhood organizations to approve. “We had a little concern with the hours,” said Margie Valdez of the Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods. “But she addressed every concern we had. She’s going to be a good neighbor.” Sovine agreed to close Utopia at midnight and outdoor consumption areas at 10 p.m. on weeknights and 11 p.m. on weekends. “The neighborhood support has been critical,” she said. “We wouldn’t want to be there if they didn’t want it.” The first social use permit application was filed by Rita Tsalyuk, who hopes to open the Coffee Joint, located at 1130 Yuma Court, an industrial area on the west side of Denver.

Animal Matters Dumb Friends League President and CEO Bob Rohde Retiring After Four Decades Rohde leaves legacy of compassion, collaboration and innovation to the animal welfare community in Colorado and beyond Dumb Friends League President and CEO Bob Rohde has announced that he will retire on February 7 after four decades of being a strong and steadfast voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. He has devoted his career and life to the welfare of animals and is a leading national figure in animal welfare causes. “It has been my distinct honor to serve the animals, our supporters and this community for so many years,” said Rohde. “Together we have been able to make meaningful changes in the lives of the animals we care for while helping to improve animal welfare across the country.” Rohde joined the Dumb Friends League in 1973 as an animal care technician after moving to Colorado from his home state of Iowa. Quickly rising through the ranks, he was named executive director of the Dumb Friends League in 1977 and subsequently became president and CEO. Since that time, his strong leadership, emphasis on strategic planning,

Bob Rohde, retiring DFL CEO and President and visionary program development have helped create one of the nation’s most innovative and highly regarded animal welfare organizations. Today, the Dumb Friends League is one of the five largest local, nonprofit humane societies in the United States in terms of programs and number of pets saved each year. Animal welfare was much different when Rohde joined the Dumb Friends League 44 years ago. Then, there was a staff of just 17 employees and the organization was only able to save approximately 4,400 of the 40,000 animals it received each year, resulting in a live release rate of only 11 percent. Today, thanks to Rohde’s leadership and the hard work of more than 200 team members and over

1,400 volunteers, the League has achieved a 100 percent live release rate for healthy cats and dogs, and a 90 percent live release rate for all cats and dogs—a remarkable accomplishment for a shelter that turns no animal away regardless of age, health or temperament. That dramatic turnaround was achieved through Rohde’s strategic collaborations and the implementation of programs and services that have set the standard for humane organizations nationwide. Rohde’s work didn’t stop within the walls of the shelter. He spearheaded the strengthening of Colorado’s animal cruelty laws, helped gain passage of standards of care for animals in pet facilities and advocated for stiffer penalties for persons convicted of repeated animal cruelty. Based on his strong belief that “working together works,” Rohde brought together local animal welfare groups to collaborate and form a coalition to create better outcomes for animals on a statewide level. Rohde is the former president of the Society of Animal Welfare Administrators (SAWA), was one of the first Certified Animal Welfare Administrators in the nation and, over the years, has served in advisory roles for numerous pet nutrition and animal health companies. To celebrate Rohde’s dedication to animal welfare and the work he has accomplished over the last

4 decades February 7, 2018 has been proclaimed Robert Rohde day by Mayor Hancock and the City of Denver. Upon Rohde’s retirement, CEO-designate Apryl Steele, DVM, will take over as president and CEO of the Dumb Friends League. “I made my decision to retire with the absolute conviction that I have ensured the continued growth and success of the League by personally hand-selecting my successor with the approval of our board,” said Rohde. “Apryl is extremely smart and passionate about our work and our organization, and she has a huge amount of compassion for animals. She is the best possible choice for this position and for the future of the League and the animals we all care about so deeply.” A dynamic leader as well as a practicing veterinarian in Denver for 18 years, Steele has extensive knowledge of the community and animal welfare. She is currently on the board of the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Steele is a past president of the Denver Area Veterinary Medical Society, the Colorado Veterinary Medical Association and the Animal Assistance Foundation, has served on the boards of PetAid Colorado and the Dumb Friends League, and is a veteran of the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps. www.ddfl.org

R e a l E state 2.15.2018 The stock market did not crash, but it did exceed most rational expectations over the last couple of years. It is always sensitive to economic factors and will remain volatile to events that have control over business, politics, the consumption of goods and services, trade agreements, and much more, both nationally and globally. What is the relationship between Wall Street and the real estate market? It is always helpful to understand what may influence the housing market such as; buyer and seller trends, the importance of supply and demand, mortgage rates, construction activity, etc. Joseph Kirchner, Chief Economist for Realtor.com, stated “Despite the stock market correction, the market is still 15% above a year ago and economic fundamentals remain strong”. Short term corrections and inherent market volatility never had much of an effect on real estate. However, if a correction were to continue longer-term (more than 4-8 weeks) we would begin to see confidence in the economy slip enough to impact labor and housing. The reality is that rates have finally begun to see small, but consistent increases. In December we found mortgage rates in the +/- 4% range, and now see rates closer to 4.5% for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. This expected rate change will likely affect the lower price range and people on a fixed income. Interest rates tend to have less influence on the mid to upper price ranges. Those people still care about payments but tend to have more flexibility on a monthly basis. There is also more discretion related to payment amounts and the possibility for a cash transaction. Historically, it is interesting to note that when rates would increase, real estate activity visibly improved. People move off the fence deciding to relocate before the cost of money is higher. Economic factors affecting Denver real estate in 2018 will be very similar to the past couple of years…strong demand and weak supply. First-time buyers and those looking below $500,000 will need to be focused and assertive. It can be true in every price range. This means becoming pre-approved for a mortgage and then locating the best full-time professional realtor to represent your interests and help you compete at the highest level. It can be

Pickard Chilton, an awardwinning architecture studio best known for its innovative and cutting-edge design of corporate headquarters and campuses, announced the completion of 1144 Fifteenth Street, a $300 million, 40-story office and retail development in Denver, Colorado. The first new office tower in the market in nearly a decade and the tallest office skyscraper added to Denver’s skyline in 30 years, 1144 Fifteenth Street’s forward-thinking aesthetics and design represent a game changer for the city. The property features a design evocative of the surrounding Rocky Mountains. 1144 Fifteenth Street’s façade and 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows provide abundant natural light as well as unobstructed mountain and city views. “It has been such a tremendous experience seeing this building come to fruition”, said Principal Anthony Markese FAIA. “It’s humbling to contribute to a city and its skyline in such a significant way.” Pickard Chilton was commissioned to design the tower by Hines, the global real estate investment, development and management firm. It includes 27 floors of Class-A office space atop a 13-story podium that will host retail, restaurants, and 5,000-square-foot fitness center, along with 840 parking spaces and auto detailing service. Pickard Chilton designed the LEEDCS Gold 1144 Fifteenth Street as the future of the workplace, offering a free-flowing, flexible and sustainable environment, accompanied by a double height daylit lobby that will serve as a hub for innovation and collaboration. The building has achieved great success attracting commercial tenants (65% leased prior to completion), and will serve as the corporate headquarters for Chipotle, Optiv, and the Gates Corporation. 1144 Fifteenth Street is Pickard Chilton’s second major commission in Denver. The firm also designed 4600 South Syracuse, an office building situated within the Denver Technology Center, overlooking the Rocky Mountains. ABOUT PICKARD CHILTON Pickard Chilton is an international architectural practice noted for its expertise in the design of large, complex and often high-profile buildings including corporate headquarters, high-rise commercial office towers, hotels, and academic and health care facilities.

Energize Denver Annual Report Denver’s Department of Public Health & Environment (DDPHE) released the Energize Denver Benchmarking Ordinance 2017 Annual Report, outlining the first year of data collected through the program. The Energize Denver 2017 annual report found that reaching a 30 percent reduction in energy consumption in Denver could result in annual energy cost savings of a $82 million across 13 different large-building types. The Energize Denver Benchmarking Ordinance began in 2017, after being passed by City Council in 2016. In this first year, Energize Denver saw a nearly 90 percent compliance rate, with Denver buildings averaging an ENERGY STAR score of 68.

14

The ordinance requires all buildings over 25,000 square feet to annually assess and report on energy performance using the EPA’s free ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager tool. In 2017, only buildings over 50,000 square feet were required to benchmark energy use. Buildings over 25,000 must start benchmarking by June 1, 2018. The energy used in large buildings in Denver is currently equivalent to 57 percent of the city’s greenhouse gas emissions. Energize Denver aims to improve the energy efficiency of large buildings 10 percent by 2020 and 30 percent by 2030. Improving energy efficiency can be beneficial for the bottom lines of both building owners and occupants — and is critical to helping Denver reach its 80x50 Climate Goal, reducing Denver’s community greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050. One example of this in Denver is 1720 S. Bellaire St., a building which boasted an ENERGY STAR score of 91 in 2016. Realizing more energy savings could be achieved, the building owners/operators undertook an energy savings project in 2017 that cut energy consumption by 30 percent. For more information about DDPHE visit www.denvergov.org/PublicHealthandEnvironment. Follow us on Twitter.com/DDPHE.

Dairy Block is situated along Wazee and Blake Street between 18th and 19th Street, centrally located between Coors Field and the revitalized Denver Union Station. The innovated "Alley" features a pedistrian only activated alley (upper photo) with plenty of restaurant venues.

The Alley at Dairy Block Over the past few years, downtown Denver has continued to evolve into a new kind of dining destination. It seems our fair city has finally shed its cow town persona. One of the things that differentiates us amidst all the rapid growth is our commitment to preserving history. In Denver, what’s old, it seems, is new again, so visitors and locals alike can venture through the past and explore downtown in a whole new light. This coming spring marks another milestone in the city’s history as a massive development project combining retail, hospitality, and local tastemakers will be on display—all of it centered around the city’s first activated alley. Welcome to Dairy Block. Situated between Wazee and Blake Streets and 18th and 19th streets, Dairy Block blends the historic side of the city with Denver’s unmistakable entrepreneurial spirit. Built in 1918, the historic red brick building first housed Windsor Dairy Farm in 1920. Cheese, milk, and butter were processed in the building until 1928 when Meadow Gold bought it from the company. Real estate firm Grand American Inc. eventually took hold of the building, owning it for nearly 30 years. A prime real estate for any venture, the space could have easily been torn down and replaced to keep up with the ever-expanding city. In conjunction with Grand Amer-

ican Inc., real estate development firm McWHINNEY and nationallyacclaimed hospitality group Sage Hospitality came together with a vision of what the block could be. With the Windsor Dairy Farm building surrounded by vacant historic buildings and surface parking lots, a thought came to mind: Why not expand and develop the entire block? Blending old with new, the project built off of the original Windsor Dairy building to develop the entire block into something truly one-of-a-kind. Blending modern design with inventive food and cocktails plus quality crafts, Dairy Block is set to be its own Denver destination. The project is truly a milestone, but the heart of it all will introduce something Denver has never seen. Cutting through the block itself is a once-ordinary alley that is being transformed into something truly extraordinary. Drawing inspiration from activated alleys on the streets of Barcelona to the popular Pike Place Market in Seattle, Dairy Block’s pedestrian-only alleyway will be lined with a multitude of makers, including local and statewide retailers, restaurants, and more. “The Alley was always the heartbeat of the venture,” explains Tom Martin, General Manager of Dairy Block. “The Alley offers a refuge in the heart of the city where people can come together to have dinner, shop, and build a community.” www.dairyblock.com
