Trial Update

Trial is just one week away! We need to show the Judge our community is unified in this fight against arbitrary zoning. Please come to the court house for opening statements on August 21, 22, and 23 from 8-9am.

City and County Building
1437 Bannock Street
Courtroom 409

The judge has acknowledged this is an emotional case, but has asked that we remind everyone to act professionally and respectfully, even if you disagree with what the other side says. Failure to do so will get you kicked out (and will harm our case!). Some additional things to keep in mind:

  • turn off your mobile phone,
  • no eating or drinking,
  • sit quietly,
  • no audio or visual recording.

Thanks so much for your continued support.

Highlands Street Fair

Thank you for making this event such a great success! We raised over $300 and over 200 people signed our petition.

Donations are still welcome

The trial is still a critical juncture for the lawsuit and we need your financial support more than ever. Please stand with us by making a financial contribution to help offset court costs. We have a highly reputable 17th Street law firm who has taken our case challenging Denver's illegal zoning practices on a pro bono basis, but we are responsible for court costs and related fees, which have accumulated into the tens of thousands of dollars at his point. Your help means more to us than we can express in words. We, your neighbors and the plaintiffs, thank you for your generosity and support of the community. DONATE NOW!.
