Great news! The Democrats oppose funding for P2PH.
The Executive Committee of the Denver Democratic Party passed a Resolution on April 17, 2017, urging :
"...public servants to not fund the P2PH [Platte to Park Hill drainage project] and instead fund long-identified other drainage projects [ in Denver]." Read the entire resolution :
This Resolution was passed on to the members of Denver City Council and Denver's state legislators.
You could add your voice to this request by emailing your City Council person and your state legislators.
