This is it! What is your “sustainability” passion? Healthy eating? Recycling? Gardening? Going local? Come, this evening, to Kick-Off Sustainable North City Park and join with others who share your passion!
Denver Museum of Nature and Science
Enter the Museum through the staff/volunteer door just left of the main entrance on the north side. Volunteers will direct you to the room. We’ll have a few kid toys on hand to help occupy the little ones.
North City Park was selected as one of three Denver neighborhoods to pilot the Sustainable Neighborhoods Network program!
Now the fun begins. Our first event is a Kick-Off on March 6th, 5:30-7:00pm at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. At this event, we will give an overview of the program and gauge interest in various projects and goals. We need to sort out our priorities! Take a moment to complete the interest survey at the link below. Everyone who completes and returns a survey (either via the internet or on paper) will receive an LED bulb “thank you” at the Kick-Off event.
This project is about earning credits by accomplishing goals. If we accomplish our concrete goals and earn the credits, we earn Sustainable Neighborhood Network designation and signage in the neighborhood.
If you are interested in helping on the core organizing team or on a project-specific team, please email email@example.com. You can do a little or do a lot–your level of involvement is up to you. This is a wonderful opportunity to make a real difference for the environment in North City Park and meet some great neighbors.
Dear City Park Neighbors,
T2 Construction Inc. will begin construction tomorrow, January 14, by closing off the parking lot and surrounding landscape improvement areas near City Park Pavilion with construction fencing. It is anticipated that construction will be completed and the parking lot re-opened by April 15, 2014. During construction, there will be general improvements to the parking lot adding more spaces, new sidewalks will be constructed and the benches and landscaping for the Officer Hollis memorial will be installed around the perimeter of the parking lot. There will be no available parking in the lot for the duration of construction. Please park on the roadways east and west of the pavilion or park near the zoo or museum during this time.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.
