1. Wash Park Loop Safety Study - meeting 7/31 6-8PM

**************************

The Washington Park Loop Road Safety Study is being conducted by STREAM Landscape Architecture for Denver Parks & Recreation.

They will hold their next public meeting to present a Draft of their data gathering efforts. They will also present an initial series of Loop Road options and seek input from those attending the meeting.

The Study was initiated by Parks and Recreation at the request of FAN’s; together they chose the STREAM group to develop the Study. The Study started this spring. The purpose of the Study is to find ways to make the Loop Road safer for all Park users. STREAM has now collected data from Loop Road users and from an online survey they developed.

Another public meeting will be this Thursday July 31 at the Platt Park Senior Center at 1500 S. Grant St. from 6 to 8 pm.

This second public meeting by STREAM is to share the analyzed data gathered along with observations and input from Park users. This is our opportunity to listen to the findings, comment and make further inputs on ways to improve the safety of the Loop Road in Washington Park. Please plan to Attend!

2nd Alley Rally! Country Club Construction

1. Second Alley Rally! - May 17th

2. Two Upcoming Meetings on the Country Club Towers construction
May 20th and May 22nd

**************************
1. Second Alley Rally! May 17th

**************************

2nd Annual Alley Rally!! On Sat. morning May17 WWP residents will be Spring cleaning in our alleys, planting flowers, and getting to know our neighbors. We need Alley Cat Captains, one person on an alley block, who will be responsible for distributing information and rallying alley mates to Pretty-Up their alley. Clean, safe, pretty alleys with folks digging, watering, clipping, painting, and chatting discourage break-ins that spike when the weather warms up. We spend lots of time driving in our alleys so let's not abandon them to trash pickers and those looking for opportunities to steal stuff from our yards or garages. If you'd like to help, or need further information: email thedregers@gmail.com with "alley cats" in subject line!! Have fun, get creative, meet your neighbors, make WWP shine!!!
