Communications & Membership
2017 Chair: TBD
To have influence in public and governmental matters, BRUN needs a broad membership base. This committee focuses on maintaining and growing that base, addressing the mechanisms for membership management and initiatives for outreach. Additionally, this committee manages communicating important information to the neighborhood throughout the year. This includes coordinating updates to the website and social media (Facebook, Nextdoor), publishing the BRUN Newsletter, and posting meeting and committee updates.
2017 Chair: Christie Schwalbe
We stage several community events a year and doing so takes the help of a lot of hands (and feet, backs, heads, etc). Please join us, whether it’s for the full year or a single event -- we can always use your help! Some of the events we put on:
2017 Chair: Michael Beasley

Zoning & Licensing
2017 Chair: Michelle Frankel
The Zoning committee works with the City of Denver on regulations and development of private properties (residential as well as commercial) in the context of our neighborhood's concerns. We respond to development items that are up for public comment. These include businesses seeking liquor licenses, builders seeking design variances, developers seeking re-zoning or properties, as well as landmark and historic designations. Among our group's projects are establishing Good Neighbor Agreements with liquor-serving establishments, reviewing Board of Adjustment cases, and the development of a Design Overlay District addition to the Denver Zoning Code.
