SAVE THE TREES, SAVE THE PEOPLE.
REMINDER: VIGIL TONIGHT, CPGC, 6PM
The judge agreed with us that Mayor Hancock's plan to destroy historic CPGC was bad for the park and for the community and the drainage plan could be tied to Highway I 70 expansion.....but his hands were tied by Denver's Zoning code that makes Hancock a virtual dictator over Denver parks. We lost the battle but we can still win the war.
NOW it is time for the citizens to express their sorrow, anger, frustration and wish that Hancock find anther way to solve the drainage issues.
IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO SAVE THE 261 TREES that have been condemned to death to make way for the drain etc. COME TONIGHT FOR ALL OR PART OF THE VIGIL TO SAVE THE TREES.
WHEN: Tonight, Wednesday, Nov 1 , 6-8PM
WHERE: 26th & York St, CPGC, in front of the club house.
Bring a flash light or candle. Wear warm clothes. Family friendly.
We have some good news that the seemingly negative decision in the CPGClaw suit decision may have a silver lining. Read about it here: https://tinyurl.com/y823oh6j'
Please join us this Wednesday, November 1, at 6:00 to 7:00 PM for a peaceful, candle light vigil in honor of the 261 trees that Mayor Hancock intends to chop down in City Park Golf Course to make way for a part of a huge, industrial drainage project to keep Highway I-70 expansion from flooding.
We hope that the love and attachment that Denver resident have for those trees, an important part of our valuable urban canopy, will move city officials to reconsider thier unfortunate decision to deprive the community of a part of its heritage, trees that will be irreplaceable in our lifetimes, handed down from the many generations of Denverites who have gone before us.
WHEN: Wednesday, November 1, 6:00 - 7:00 PM
WHERE: 26th Ave & York St., 80205, in front of the Club House, Bogey's.
Bring a flash light and/or candles. Dress warmly.
Here is interesting information about a study that was done in London to value thier urban trees. It holds some real surprises:
