Uptown on the Hill’s board of directors at its October meeting voted to oppose (i.e., encourage voters in Uptown to vote “no”) on these ballot proposals:
2E (National Western) due to our preference that new bond money go toward affordable housing;
2F (Group Living Zoning Code Amendment) due to the need to expand the options for obtaining housing in Denver;
303 (Safe Outdoor Spaces, unsanctioned encampments)due to it creating a double-bind for the City which will result in lawsuits.
There are many other important measures being put to a vote. Our organization did not address the others, but we encourage readers to learn about the issues. Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation, the Denver League of Women Voters, Denver Decides, and Channel 8 have prepared an Elections 2021 Ballot Review Program, which is available on YouTube at https://youtu.be/8RLH-
