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.
