Empower Northeast Denver Initiative Makes the Ballot to Protect the Voice of NE Park Hill

Last month, the Denver County Clerk announced that the community led Empower Northeast Denver campaign had enough valid signatures to make the November Denver ballot. The measure is a direct response to an initiative filed by SOS Denver to take away the voice of an entire neighborhood that has been systematically disenfranchised for more than 50 years. If the Empower Northeast Denver initiative passes, the current conservation easement on the Park Hill Golf Course property will remain in place. The City and the community will continue to work together to develop a plan that benefits the surrounding neighborhood, and the voices of Northeast Park Hill will lead this process.
