Saturday Forum on Camping Ban Ordinance
Sponsored by City-wide Denver Neighborhood Organization, INC

Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation (INC) will hold a public forum on Denver's proposed Camping Ban Ordinance as part of its monthly delegate meeting on Saturday, May 12, 2012, from 10:15 to 11:30 a.m. at the South Broadway Cop Shop, 407 S. Broadway (next to K-Mart, in the shopping center on the SW corner of Alameda and Broadway).

In a formal Resolution in April, INC had called on Denver City Council to postpone its May 7 vote on the controversial Camping Ban in order to give INC's member organizations time to study the complex issues surrounding the ordinance. The Council is now scheduled to vote on the issue on Monday, May 14. The forum program and participants are listed below:

    Didn't happen.

    Nobody there at 10:20AM

    Not an efficient way to build enthusiasm for either side of the issue.

  2. The Camping Ban ordinance is to prevent the homeless from sleeping on the sidewalk in Denver.
