                    Zoning Code Update Public Meetings
Over the last several months, I have been telling you about our zoning code update and the importance of staying informed
and involved. There is a great deal of information now available at www.newcodedenver.org. The Zoning Code Up-
date team will also be hosing a series of community meetings this May. These meetings will cover:
•   Reports on the purpose and progress of The New Zoning Code.
•   An introduction to the new context and form-based approach.
•   How these approaches better support Denver's adopted plans, i.e. Blueprint Denver.
•   How the new code will be easier to use and understand.

                                 Hangar 2 Plans Move Forward
Article courtesy of the “Lowry Link”
Last month, the Denver Landmark Commission approved the latest re-
development concept for Hangar 2. Presented by Hangar 2 Partners -
consisting of Larimer Associates and Hartman Ely - the concept restores
the hangar with a self-storage facility in the interior. The blonde brick
buildings on either side will be converted into retail and office spaces.

The proposal also provides storage and parking for the Wings Over the
Rockies Air & Space Museum and creates four small-scale restaurant
buildings along the south and west edges of the property, which will
aptly be named “the Lowry Dining District.” In contrast to typical retail
centers, the plan for these 10 spaces is to create purposefully establish-
ments that house a variety of restaurants, from Bohemian coffee shops
and upscale neighborhood bars to higher-end restaurants.

The Hangar 2 Partners aim to create a vibrant retail and restaurant dis-
trict for the Lowry neighborhood. The area would serve as a center of gravity for Lowry neighbors to gather and act as its
“Main Street,” much like Denver’s South Pearl or South Gaylord.

Through 2009, Hangar 2 Partners will work with the Lowry community to refine the design and complete the approval
process for the project. As part of that refinement, the Partners and the Lowry Community Master Association will host a
community meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 20th at the Eisenhower Chapel in Lowry to discuss the
development and answer any questions. It is anticipated that construction will begin mid-2010.
                                                                                                                  PAGE 3

                             Leetsdale Living Streets Survey
Do you live or work near Leetsdale Drive? Do you ever travel on Leetsdale – for any reason? If so, please take a few
minutes to complete this brief survey, concerning Leetsdale Drive for the Living Streets initiative.

If you own a business on Leetsdale, please complete this alternate business survey. On their webpage, click on “Click Here to
Take the Survey” - do not click on the tree.

By creating “Living Streets” – streets that are designed for pedestrians, bikes, and transit, not just for cars – we can make
our communities safer, improve public health, increase investment and property values and sales. The City and County of
Denver is studying how pedestrian, bike and transit infrastructure improvements could enhance commercial corridors like
Leetsdale. Your participation in this brief survey is critical to the success of this effort.
