What House District are we in?

State house district, that is, for Colorado state legislature?  We're still in Congressional District 1 at the Federal level. 

And the answer is . . . we have been moved, due to redestricting, to House District 2.  Mark Ferrandino is our representative.

We are now in precinct 248.  

As of January 6, 2012, the city has ended the messy division of the neighborhood into precincts 330 and 331.  The boundaries of precinct 248 now exactly equal that of the boundaries of the Cherry Hills Vista (CHV) neighborhood.  Everyone in the CHV neighborhood, and only those in the CHV neighborhood, is in precinct 248.  

We need 
Block Captains 

This is someone who generally knows the people on their block and their contact information.  They would distribute neighborhood news as well as possible.  We also need newsletter deliverers.  For more information click on the "Volunteers Needed" tab above.   

If you can volunteer, contact:

George Gramer -- 303-993-8502

OR Nancy Flanagan

Our neighborhood is located in Denver, Colorado, U. S. A., near Denver University and Slavens School. It is that area of Denver bounded on the north by Yale, on the south by Dartmouth, in the west by Franklin, and in the east by University Blvd.  There is a small patch of the city of Englewood in the southeast corner of this area that is not part of this neighborhood (unless they want to be), which includes a business, a church, and a few houses near Dartmouth and University.  

Everyone in the neighborhood, or other local people interested in neighborhood affairs, is invited to join.

We are soliciting ideas as to what to post on the web site and ideas about encouraging neighborhood members to take a look at it. 

Want to Help Us Out?  Send us $10.

Dues to join the Cherry Hills Vista Community Association (which is open to all residents) are $10 per year.  Dues are basically just a donation.  We don't send out renewal notices, we just sort of pass the hat every now and then.  We just aren't that big of an organization.  But we DO appreciate all the help we can get.

You can send that $10 to our treasurer, Sue Mulhern, 2820 S. High St., Denver, CO 80210.  Make checks payable to "CHVCA" or "Cherry Hills Vista Community Association."   

We are on Facebook.
Check us out!

Also, a complete report of the survey results from surveys circulated last September are posted here.  

Our President, George Gramer, reports on the recent crime summit here.  

Watch out for vandals in our neighborhood, there have been several incidents over the past few months.

Also, watch out for coyotes and foxes -- there have been reports of coyotes attacking pets in the neighborhood.  Your web coordinator has personally observed a fox in his back yard.

We have curbside recyclingRead all about it.  You don't need to take it to "them," they will come to you.  

Household hazardous waste?  Don't toss paint, batteries, pesticides, solvents, and motor oil into the trash!  Call for a free pickup of your hazardous waste.

Fireworks are illegal in Denver!
