Walmart-free Colorado Boulevard Healthcare District dropped from town hall agenda
Denver City Council President Mary Beth Susman, who represents District 5 covering eastern Denver, will hold a town hall meeting tonight. But one of the big agenda issues has been dropped: Because developer Jeff Fuqua has not submitted a new plan for the Colorado Boulevard Healthcare District, with a list of potential tenants that would fill in the spot that lost Walmart after Susman and another councilmember came out against a plan for tax-increment financing, that item has been dropped.
Susman, who moved her office into the City and County Building to save money, will also be holding office hours at Einstein Bagels in the Lowry Town Center from 10 a.m. to noon today.
Here's the official agenda for tonight's meeting (the schedule may shift to fill in the gap left by the 9th and Colorado Boulevard excision):
District 5 Town Hall Meeting
Where: Eisenhower Chapel, 293 Roslyn Street When: Thursday, November 15, 2012
Time: 6:30-8:00 p.m.
