***Updated Grandoozy ticket info, July 27***

Discounted non-profit priced tickets ($25/day) will be available through the Grandoozy box office prior to the event on a first-come first-served basis. It will be a will-call pick-up with proof of address requirement. Make sure you follow the neighborhood Facebook page and sign up for updates from the neighborhood association website for more details as they become available.


Councilman Clark, District 7

  • Come talk with Councilman Clark at Newbarry’s, Jewell and Federal, 8-10am Saturday 7/14
  • Park Tax Proposal Question Answer – General info is to align Denver County with the rest of the state by allowing for a small addition to sales tax to be used to maintain, manage, and obtain park land through the Denver-owned properties. That would equate to $2.50 on every $100 spent and the overall increase in funding would primarily come from tourists. Will be going through second reading on Monday, July 16 and then voted on by City Council to see if it will appear on the November ballot.
  • Some examples and questions:
    • Harvard Gulch trashcans were removed rather than being maintained due to lack of parks funding
    • Help continue the conversation about possible dog parks in District 7
    • Would cover Denver area and Denver-owned mountain parks
    • Councilman Clark is hoping for constituent support if it passes Monday 7/16
