Park Hill Golf Course is the last large (155 acre) open space in Denver sitting along Colorado Blvd. between 35th and 40th Avenues. In 1997, Mayor Wellington Webb championed the preservation of this open space by purchasing a $2 million conservation easement from the Clayton Foundation to last in perpetuity. Clayton sold their development rights to Denver and Denver tax payers paid the bill. Only City Council can release the conservation agreement.
Denver has increasingly lost open space in favor of development and is on the rise for air and water pollution, and flood risks for lack of permeable surface. The schedule closing date for the sale of the Park Hill Golf Course is July 11th by Westside Investment Partners, a seasoned developer.
Denver was once known as a City within a park. Sign this petition in favor of upholding the Conservation Easement in perpetuity and let our elected officials know that the citizens of Denver voted for 2A and want to see action.
