Update on April 30:
Thank you to everyone who supported the Beloved Community proposal for relocation. City Council approved unanimously last night keeping formerly homeless neighbors housed and paving the way for more housing in the community. Read the news article here!
Trinity provided transitional housing for residents of Beloved Community Tiny House Village through a Giving Tree last Christmas. The move of the village, necessitated by zoning requirements, was delayed over additional land use concerns on the property that had been designated as the new location. Finally, after months of working with the city they have a date for presenting the proposed move to City Council. Beloved Community will be going to Council on Monday, April 29 at 5:00pm and our support is needed once again.
In order to secure support from council, we need to let them know how much their vote matters, and that there is an outpouring of support for this vote from the community. We have been asked to help with the following:
- Write letters of support to City Council
- Show up for the City Council meeting on 4/29
For a draft letter or more information contact Deb Meyer.
Find your City Council-person's information here (you can send a letter to all of council too!)
If you don’t live in Denver, send your letter to Councilman Wayne New, who is the Councilman for District 10 where Trinity is located.
