Postings of Recent Brother Jeff [Fard] Videos

Multimedia journalist, historian and community organizer Brother Jeff [Jeff Fard; brotherjeff.com]] has produced two recent videos in his online “Say It Loud” show featuring powerful interviews about the future of the Park Hill Golf Course land and its perpetual open space conservation easement.

In this most recent episode, Aug 4, Dr Calderon linked the homeless crisis to the inaction by Hancock and Herndon, using PHGC land issue and the charter amendment as a lens focusing on why this is a city-wide issue.

These Brother Jeff interview videos follow his November 2019 interview with Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca regarding the Park Hill Golf Course land.

You can find the videos of his interviews with Tony Pigford and Leslie Twarogowski using the following links:

 

 

 

Brother Jeff has also produced two in-depth and thought-provoking videos that chronicle his insights into gentrification while walking in and around two recent northeast Denver real estate development projects: (1) the Park Hill Commons and Fairfax Row development project on the east side of the 2800 block of Fairfax Street and (2) the Skyland Village development project on the old East Denver YMCA property at 3540 East 31st Avenue. Join Brother Jeff as he shares his experiences and observations about gentrification while touring these properties.  We thank Brother Jeff Fard for allowing us to share these videos.

 

 

 

 

Request To City Attorney To Provide Opinion To Council

On October 22 2019 Council Women Candi CdeBaca and Deborah Otega requested from the City Attorney Kristin Bronson that she  provide City Council with an opinion letter regarding the power of the City and Westside to terminate, release, extinguish, or abandon the conservation easement in whole or in part and the legal and/or administrative role of City Council in connection with any such action regarding the conservation easement. Council needs this legal input for reasons including the fact that their constituents have expressed strong interest in the conservation easement and the fact that issues could soon arise regarding the Park Hill Golf Course land in connection with the Large Development Review process of the Community Planning and Development Department.
