Community Forum On Residential Development - Location Change

Because of the enormous interest in the city's community forum on residential development (March 7th, 6-8 p.m.), the location necessarily had to be changed to a large space in the Webb Building, per a piece in the Rocky Mountain News:

A community forum March 7 to discuss residential development in Denver has been moved to the atrium of the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building to accommodate the large crowd.

The move comes after residents were put on a waiting list and told they might not be able to attend because of a lack of space.

"What kind of public 'community forum' is it that cannot accommodate the public?" Larry Ambrose, president of the Sloan's Neighborhood Association, wrote in an e-mail to the city obtained by the Rocky Mountain News.

Julius Zsako, spokesman for the city's Community Planning and Development Department, said today that the atrium can hold "many hundreds of people."

However, the city is still asking people who want to attend to RSVP by contacting Valentina Guereca at 720-865-3223 or via e-mail at Valentina.Guereca@ by Friday. The forum will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Webb building, 201 W. Colfax Ave.
