BRUN Neighborhood Meeting Minutes September 19, 2017

  • 1.      GO Bond CCD speaker cancelled last minute. It was felt that polling indicated community outreach was not needed.
  • 2.      Zip car- car share dedicated spaces- Nicole Dalmy from Zip Car
  • Dedicated spaces for care share programs (round trip, not one way like Car2go). Car share identifies potential spots based on user data (zip codes) then car share pays fee to city for dedicated spot. Permit for the spot is good for 1 year. Zip car is a membership-based program. Zip Car members reside in BerkleyZip Car suggests potential spaces for permit but the City of Denver determines where the dedicated parking spaces will be permitted.
  • Pros
  • -Studies indicate for every 1 member of car share programs there is 13-15 cars off the road. People using the car sharing services are our neighbors
  • -Good alternative transportation in high density areas
  • Cons
  • -Concern that city is selling public parking spaces to private businesses
  • -Concern that dedicated spaces are in front of businesses, reducing the already limited parking for the business
  • ACTION ITEM- HEATHER TO FOLLOW UP WITH ALYSSA ALT WITH PUBLIC WORKS TO SEE IF CAR SHARING SPACES CAN BE MOVED IN FRONT OF SLOT HOMES

  • There was public meeting last week to determine potential solutions and recommend changes to the zoning code. CU Denver are testing proposed changes t the zoning code to determine potential issues and loopholes.
  • Anything in the pipeline until the changes to the code are made will be grandfathered in. This means it may be 2019 before we actually see any changes for the new zoning codes because developers are requesting all projects be grandfathered in. Developers are saying they are already implementing proposed changes but we would like to see specific examples from the developers.
  • There will be a new “urban townhome building” form
