  1. Building a few hundred affordable units isn’t going to solve the problem. According to Denver Housing Authority’s Executive Director, David Nisivoccia, “the city is more than 50,000 units of affordable housing behind what’s needed for people making below 60% of the area median income.” There’s a big need – small bites, like the newly completed Stella project are providing housing for a few – but the daunting question is whether or not we can fix the problem with the same old solutions? (Denverite)
  2. Who found the water leak at Denver International Airport that caused $50 million in damages? The guy who found the leak, Robert Wilson, was working the graveyard shift – two hours into his shift – he noticed a big problem with DIA’s hot water system in the soon-to-open B concourse. “This was a really big leak and… I need to go locate it.” (CBS4)
  3. Denver residents should check out the final two redistricting maps that will be presented. Denver City Council members are moving forward with two potential re-districting maps that will redraw council districts across the city and sets the stage for the 2023 municipal election. (Patch)
  4. Lakewood house fire a total loss, one dead. A person was found dead at 2700 block of South Cole Court in Lakewood on Thursday. When firefighters arrived, the home was fully engulfed in flames. No word on the cause of the fire, or the identity of the victim. (FOX31)
  5. Primus and Ween will headline South Park 25th Anniversary Show at Red Rocks. Co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will be part of the Comedy Central show that will celebrate 25 years of Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kenny. (303)
