Earlier this month, The Denver Post reported that the metro Denver area is now the eighth least affordable city nationwide. We feel this every day as the cost of daily necessities rises, and it becomes more and more difficult to live and thrive in our city. Policymakers must act swiftly and boldly to meet the needs of our community.
The East Area Plan was passed through Denver City Council on Nov. 16, with a 12-1 vote. I was the lone “No” vote, just as I was the lone “No” vote in October on the East Central Area Plan, which is in my district.
