In the 1960's, the well-intended but misguided "Urban Renewal" craze swept away over 113 acres of Denver's past. Fortunately, lessons were learned from that almost immediately leading to an incredible regeneration of historic areas all over Colorado. One organization that is in the thick of it is Colorado Preservation, Inc which presently has an initiative to create a revenue and awareness-generating license plate. I saw this as a perfect way to intersect with them on a project dear to my heart and in my neighborhood-- Sullivan Gateway (see below).

Sullivan Gateway 

This is the project that first brought me to Colorado Preservation Inc. Not only is it part of my immediate neighborhood, it is part of the fabric of Denver's history that deserves to be returned to its original glory. Doing so also brings a heightened sense of culture to the area which increases its economic draw. I am committed to making that happen by creating an annual High Urban Hikes Homegrown Festival here (hopefully next year) which features not only 420 friendly service providers but will showcase only vendors who make products here in Colorado while also highlighting the many wonderful businesses in the upper Colfax corridor in front of Sullivan Gateway.

Kudos to Paige Smith and her public art project "Urban Geodes" which we are implementing in Denver on a small scale with hopes that soon she will be commissioned to do a HUGE beautiful one somewhere in our fair city. As HUH grows, we will create more and more of these precious urban gems in conjunction with our tour routes. More Public Art. YAY!
