Denver residents sound off on bond package.
The Denver City Council on Monday considered just one amendment to a $937 million bond package that its members could vote to send to the November ballot next week. Several streets in northwest and west Denver — Central Street, Morrison Road and West Colfax Avenue — would share in money for pedestrian-oriented improvements from a reshuffling of $9.8 million that had been earmarked for a Federal Boulevard transit project, under a modification suggested by the two councilmen who represent those areas, Paul López and Rafael Espinoza. At 10 p.m., the council had not yet voted on that change, which wouldn’t increase the overall project total for the bond package.
The council considered the amendment after hearing from more than two dozen speakers during a public hearing Monday night.
