Denver Public Works to Host 2nd Community Workshop for Broadway/Lincoln Corridor Study



Denver residents, business owners, employees and stakeholders are encouraged to attend a second community workshop on how to improve mobility and safety along the Broadway/Lincoln corridor.

Denver Public Works is leading a study that will evaluate new concepts to make Broadway/Lincoln a safer place for all travelers. Denver community members who walk, bike, take transit or drive the corridor are encouraged to attend this workshop and provide input on possible improvements.

Community workshop for Broadway/Lincoln Corridor Study:

When: Thursday, January 28, 2015

iPhone-HomeWant to be able to turn up the heat before you get home?
Wish you could turn the lights on before the sun goes down?
Want to be able to monitor your home’s security system while you are on vacation?
Now you can.
Home technology has vastly improved over the last few years, improving functionality and energy efficiency. But some smart home features carry more value than others. Here are the top features that will not only help you enjoy your home more, but will also make the home more appealing when it’s time to sell.

Nest Thermostat
The Nest Thermostat is controlled with your smart phone, and it learns the schedule of the home’s occupants. It automatically adjusts the temperature according to your schedule, which saves on energy costs, since heating and cooling will be reduced when appropriate. The Nest Thermostat has earned glowing reviews it is a great upgrade for your home.

Automatic Lighting
Lighting is an overlooked part of home security—leaving the lights on in the evening can deter burglars, because the lights suggest someone is home. With automatic and smart lighting systems, you can program your lights to come on in the evening, or use your smart phone to turn on the lights before you arrive at home.

Smart Alarms
Gone are the days of controlling your security system just from a panel inside the home. Now there are security systems that you can control from anywhere in the world using your smart phone. You can monitor your home from anywhere, without having to pay a monthly fee to a security company.

Leverage today’s technology to make heating, lighting and securing your home easier than ever. When you are ready to sell, these feature upgrades will be a real benefit to future buyers.

As your REALTOR®, I will guide you through the home selling and buying process. Let me help you find your new Denver home. Call me today at 720.675.7355 or email me at donnahansenion (@)

Denver Digs Trees

Cleveland Pear Tree

Cleveland Pear Tree

Even though the ground is too frozen for planting, it isn’t too early to start planning your tree planting for 2016.
Denver Digs Trees can help!

For the past 30 years the Denver Digs Trees program by The Park People has helped to provide over 48,000 trees to Denver residents.

You may apply for a ‘street tree’ or a ‘yard tree’. A street tree improves the area between the sidewalk and the curb. A yard tree is used to enhance your yard.

The standard fee is $35 per tree which is an excellent deal on a tree.

However, Denver Digs Trees target neighborhoods qualify for $10 trees.

Those lucky neighborhoods are:
Athmar Park, Baker, Barnum, Barnum West, Chaffee Park, Clayton, Cole, College View/South Platte, East Colfax, Elyria-Swansea, Five Points, Globeville, Green Valley Ranch, Jefferson Park, Lincoln Park, Mar Lee, Montbello, Northeast Park Hill, Overland, Ruby Hill, Skyland, Sun Valley, Valverde, Villa Park, West Colfax, Westwood, and Whittier.

With a little research you can enrich your property’s value, appearance and enjoyment by planting a tree.

Here are all the details and a link to apply:
