Community navigators began meeting with residents in February. To date, navigators have hosted four Park Hill Golf Course Talks, which are small group conversations of around 8-12 people, and approximately 20 one-on-one conversations. These conversations will continue throughout March and April. Denver Metro Community Impact expects to release a full report in May detailing this work for the public.

The committee held its first meeting on February 9, 2021 at 5:00 PM. Watch the recording of this meeting on YouTube.
Facilitator Nita Mosby Tyler spent the first hour speaking to the group and allowing brief discussion about equity – how it is defined, and its relevance to the process that the steering committee is undertaking.
The next several minutes were allotted to James Roy II of Denver Metro Community Impact, who briefed the participants on the role of the Community Navigators – members of the community who will be charged with community outreach activities on the ground, operating separately from the steering committee. The navigators themselves were not identified at this time. It was revealed however, that those chosen as Navigators would be paid for their services.
The final minutes of the meeting were spent discussing portions of the agenda for the next meeting, which will include drafting a charter for the group. The next meeting is tentatively set for March 9, 2021.
The Community Steering Committee has been selected and will conduct their first meeting on Tuesday, 2/9/21 from 5pm-7pm. All steering committee meetings will be open to public observation.
