Dear Neighbors,

Each year my office sends a survey requesting your feedback to ensure that I am addressing the issues that you care about. 2022 survey results showed that your top three concerns of District 5 residents were crime, traffic and homelessness. Here are a few of the initiatives we worked on in 2022-2023 in response to this feedback:

• Funded a traffic study of Uinta Way to design safer roadways on some of our busiest streets.
• Reestablished and chaired the Charter Review Committee to help address inconsistencies and anachronisms in our Charter.
• Implemented crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) upgrades in small businesses along the Colfax corridor with the help of DPD, City agencies, and The FAX Partnership.
• Was elected to the Colorado Municipal League Board of Directors to help better serve Denver and lead Colorado.
• Co-sponsored a legislative rezoning to help revitalize East Colfax with a zoning overlay to spur business and walkability along the corridor.

Now it's time to share your priorities for 2023-2024! A warm welcome to residents of Cherry Creek North, Cherry Creek East, and Country Club, who have joined Council District 5! Please fill out our Constituent Feedback Survey below by Dec. 31st. Thank you!
