Per Denver Community Planning and Development:

City planners will continue working with residents in 2022 to refine the prevailing vision into a coordinated park framework and area plan detailing park size, location, and considerations for future parks and open spaces along with more detailed land use recommendations.
Longer term, after the community-driven guidance in the area plan takes shape, Denver City Council will vote on the plan and potentially other related actions, including an update to the conservation easement and zoning requirements that implement the area plan. When there is a clear proposal for how the conservation easement should be updated, the city will also refer the matter to a public vote in accordance with ballot initiative 301.


At the community and board meeting on Thursday, September  2nd, the Board of Governors of Greater Park Hill Community, Inc. adopted a resolution in support of Initiated Ordinance 301 – Yes for Parks and Open Space – and in opposition to Ordinance 302 – Conservation Easement. The ordinance numbers are not referenced in the resolution because they had not yet been assigned when the vote took place. These initiatives will be decided by Denver voters during the November 2021 Coordinated Election. Ballots will be mailed started on October 8th and the last day to vote is November 2nd.


The city hired RRC Associates, a market research firm, to conduct two public surveys on the future of Park Hill Golf Course. One survey was mailed to residents in the neighborhoods around the golf course in March 2021. The other was available online and was open to anyone, regardless of where they lived. Both surveys contained the same questions. Altogether, 1,302 surveys were completed and returned by residents who live within one mile of the golf course and an additional 1,388 online surveys were filled out by people citywide.

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.
