I grew up here in Denver! In fact, when I say I grew up here, I mean I grew up here!... in U-Hills! My parents still live in the house we grew up in. I'm a TJ Spartan! My family has lived in Denver for generations and this city means very much to me. When my husband and I recently moved back to Denver, we knew U-Hills was the place we wanted to raise our own family. My children attend Bradley International Elementary, which is a truly wonderful school and we are happy to be a part of the community there.
There are a lot of things going on in our city and in U-Hills that deserve our collective thought and guidance. I think our U-Hills community is wonderful and I want to work to preserve the things we value most about our neighborhood, like the High Line Canal, our Eisenhower Park, our U-Hills Library, our community garden, the quiet feel, the list goes on and on!
And, there are things I want to make even better. I want to improve walkability and bike-ability, for improved safe access to our local U-Hills businesses, the Light Rail, our schools, and more. I want to build an even stronger and more cohesive community so U-Hills continues to be the friendly neighborhood it is. I want to promote safety, awareness, and community collaboration so that our neighborhood remains a safe place to live. I want to make improvements to our area that attract more local businesses (like restaurants!).
While I do believe the recent investment in our neighborhood is exciting, I do not support the recent splitting of lots and I think there are ways we can come together as a community to help ensure development and investment in our neighborhood suits the area and the people of our community.
