What is this Advisory Committee, who is running it, and how do I contact it? I'm appalled at this proposal which would ruin Denver's landmark historic block, add to the sterility and anonymity of the new development downtown, and make it like a Dallas clone. In the '50s and early '60s the city had plans to demolish all of lower downtown and put a freeway through it. How would that have added to the livability of downtown? Is anyone sorry they didn't manage to achieve their megalomanical plan? Larimer Square was a pioneering effort that showed historic preservation was a viable development option downtown. After having shown the way for so much of downtown's redevelopment, let's not now have it destroyed just to add more bland and overbearing new buildings.

It is being run by the owner and developer. Very little input by so called "advisory" members

Thank you for your comment and feedback. To your question of how to learn more about the Advisory Committee, Historic Denver has a page on their website devoted to this current issue. Dana Crawford, as well as Annie Levinsky of Historic Denver are on the Advisory Committee. 

I'm sorry to hear this. Thank you commenting. It's important to make sure residents know what is going on.
