These five measures are known as the RISE Denver infrastructure proposal. RISE – Rebuilding for an Inclusive and Sustainable Economy – is an infrastructure package of 88 projects that will help fuel Denver’s economic recovery, especially in underserved neighborhoods. The package will create 7,500 jobs, nearly $500 million in worker wages and benefits, and $1 billion in economic impact – all without raising taxes.
Here’s what a YES on 2A-E vote means for you and the entire city:
Measure 2A builds two new libraries in the historically underserved neighborhoods of Globeville and Westwood; renovates the May Bonfils Stanton Theater on the Loretto Heights campus; improves the Denver Zoo, Museum of Nature and Science, and Denver Botanic Gardens; and enhances accessibility in city buildings as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Measure 2B is another important step in addressing the city’s homelessness crisis by converting 300 motel rooms into housing units, improving conditions at existing shelters, and purchasing a shelter currently under a long-term lease.
Measure 2C makes significant safety improvements to our transportation and mobility networks, including upgrades to sidewalks, intersections and roadways, as well as installing new protected bike lanes and sidewalks.
Measure 2D means new playgrounds and parks, repairs to athletic fields and basketball and tennis courts, and a transformation of the Sloan’s Lake Boathouse into a community and event space for everyone to enjoy.
Measure 2E transforms the historic 1909 Building at the National Western Center into a public market that will bring fresh food to the surrounding neighborhoods and new opportunities for local businesses, while also building a new arena to serve the Stock Show and host 200 community events a year. The arena will generate the revenue for a new Community Investment Fund overseen by the community as well.
I’m voting Yes on 2A-E and hope you will as well to help power Denver’s recovery – without raising taxes.
