Denver Direct: Parks are for … making money

Denver’s Parks and Rec Advisory Board considered, for a second time, the Mayor’s proposed Admission Based Events Policy. If you have 2 hours and 45 mins of free time, you might consider watching the proceedings here, as I did. (Hat tip to Channel 8). With 80 percent of the presenters opposed to the policy, the Advisory Board voted 10 to 7 in favor anyway. You will probably notice the difference in some parks when you see areas fenced off that you will have to buy a ticket for if you want to gain admission. My impression is that many, if not most, of these events will sell booze.
You can’t drink alcohol in the parks legally on your own, but if you pay the promoters, they will enable you to drink legally in the fenced off areas of the parks that you (the people) own.
BTW, businessman-mayor-gubernatorial candidate Hickenlooper has promised he won’t do to the State what he has done to our City if he is elected Governor. From Joanne Dittmer at the Denver Post:
I recently was at a mayoral event. The mayor greeted me, and I said, “John, if you become governor, keep your hands off the 42 state parks. People are worried.” Before he could answer, someone snagged him for a photo. But when he left the event, he came by to tell me: “I promise, if I become governor I won’t put admission-based private events in the state parks.”
