We are happy to announce that Phil Goodstein, independent historian, renowned speaker and one who knows where all of the bodies are buried….. will be our featured speaker at CPFAN’s June meeting.
Well known Denver historian and prolific author, Phil Goodstein will talk about where Denver is headed.
The city is in a crazy building boom. Vintage buildings fall victim to development as developers and the media tout trendy new builds in LoDo, RiNo, Hi-Lo, and more.I 70 expansion compounds environmental and social injustice.
What’s going on? How does development impact Denver residents? How does the city’s history affect current development decisions? What part does Denver’s energy economy and its boom-and-bust cycles play? How does Denver’s sports fixation affect its future?
JOIN us on Saturday, June 10, from 2 -4 for a backyard barbecue and support the effort of the neighbors of Globevllle , Swansea and Elyria to stop the expansion of inner city Highway I 70.
