Please Attend the Hearing to Save the Historic Anderson House
In two weeks, the Denver Landmark Preservation Commission will rule on whether the historic Anderson House has enough historic importance to be designated a landmark by Denver City Council. Your attendance, and potential testimony, is crucial to ensuring the Commission saves the ‘grande dame’ of Denver’s Jefferson Park. Please attend the hearing on Oct. 6 at 1 p.m. in the Webb Building, Room 4.F.6, and prepare for what will be a battle to save a part of Denver’s character and history.

You Will Make a Difference
The developer looking to destroy the home has already shown he will rig the system by stacking votes, and together we can and must be prepared to bring the real Denver residents to the hearing to stop him from doing it again. The developer recently stacked a neighborhood association meeting with business associates housed from his office building to win a vote to destroy the Anderson House. As noted by Denver Real Estate Watch: “Many of those who voted to not support the designation share the same address of Denver-based Adams Development, which is trying to buy the house… .” Your presence or testimony will show that the community supports the preservation of the Anderson House and the history it represents. Your presence will make all the difference. If you plan to attend, or can help in other ways, please sign up: https://saveandersonhouse.wordpress.com/signup-to-save-the-anderson-house/
