Denver’s 2017 General Obligation Bond (GO Bond) process is picking up steam as the Executive Committee reviews and prioritizes projects proposed by the bond’s five subcommittees (Transportation and Mobility, Parks and Recreation, Arts and Culture, City-Owned Facilities, and Safety Facilities).
We are happy to report that so far, the Colfax Corridor Improvements remain a high priority project on the Transportation and Mobility Committee’s list. If you missed our previous newsletter which dives a bit deeper into our proposed Colfax project, click here.
Another big project on Colfax falls under the Safety Facilities subcommittee – the District 6 Police Station.
The 16,000 sq. ft. station, which was built sometime around 1966, is in dire need of reconstruction. The station currently operates at a 145% capacity rate. The project proposes the demolition of the existing building and construction of a new police facility.
The Executive Committee will continue to deliberate and prioritize projects over the next week. The package will then move on for review by the Mayor in June and July, then to City Council in August. Finally, the GO Bond package will be sent to a public vote in November. We will keep you posted as the process moves along!
