|Councilmember Hinds’ Welcome Letter|
Fall is finally here. I hope you are enjoying Colorado’s beautiful fall foliage and the cooler temperatures. For this month’s newsletter, we are deviating a little from our normal structure and focusing more on news surrounding homelessness. The issue of homelessness is one that is in Denver and far beyond. Last month, I traveled to Houston to visit with local leaders to discuss their approach to homelessness. My biggest takeaway was the importance of a unified regional approach.
Addressing homelessness is a priority for me and the residents of District 10. As I reflect on my trip to Houston, I want to highlight some initiatives that the Denver is employing to address our housing strategies. There is positive work being done, and there is still a lot more to come. I look forward to applying the lessons I learned in Houston to our perfect slice of Denver along with metro partners. If you are interested in learning more about my visit to Houston, feel free to check out my conversation with 5280 Magazine. Until next time!

|South Central Denver Community Transportation Network (SC CTN)|
SC CTN Phase 1 construction will deliver 11 new bikeway corridors across the South Central network, including D10’s Alamo Placita, Capitol Hill, Cheeseman Park, Country Club, and Golden Triangle. Construction for this phase will start in Fall 2022 and continue through the end of 2023. Bikeways installed through the Community Transportation Networks play a critical role in meeting Denver’s goal of 125 miles of new bikeways by 2023, and include numerous improvements for people walking, rolling, and bicycling, resulting in safer and more comfortable streets for everyone.
