West Side Petition
TO: Mayor Currigan and City Agency Chiefs
There is no getting away from the fact that parts of West Denver are rapidly developing into a slum, with a grand new hospital rising, an alien, to its surroundings, in streets that people are afraid to walk on at night.
How can the people hope that the new hospital will bring a new development era to this community, with slumlike and ghetto-like conditions existing immediately around it?
A group of thinking, concerned West Side citizens met recently with their Councilman, with members of the West Side Improvement Association, a police officer and members of the,Health and Hospital staff.
They did not have to tell thesb. men aBbut these conditions oh the West Side; all they had to do was look around them, at the garbage '.cans overftdwihg by thb frbrit porches, the littered yards and streets, the doers running loose, the congestion brought about by th& toOnclo^e houses, without yards or alleys, that are over-populated.
They did not have to say that this scene was reunffiscerit of' New York's lower East Side in its early days. All this, in the -Very shadow of the new hospital, in a young and growing city, the Queen City of the West.
There are some pebple whb would Be a credit to any community that they lived hr, and fortunately we have many of them Still left on the V/4st Side. Unfdrtuhateiy, there are increasing numbers of people who would tear down any community that they \ happened to live in.
They say that on the West Sid the Slum Lord is king, yet there is proof that these landlords have fixed up their property in some cases, only to have it rapidly deteriorated by tenants who are strangers to the hammer, broom and rake, whose children ate allowed to run around, the neighborhood damaging the homes of those who are working, and who laugh at and make a mockery of the leash law on dogs or the curfew on young children.
Some of the worst eyesores on the West Side are the business places of men making a good living here; surely they owe us decent-looking buildings and unlittered grounds;
Because we feel that this situation is so serious we are asking our Mayor by petition, to study this situation cmd find a remedy for these coriditoris before the opportunity, for redevelopment because dt the new hospital {kisses us by, and the West Side is a slum that will grow until tt becomes a Frankenstein overwhelming those who could have stopped its growth;
W& are riot telling our Mayor cmd our offiddls wftcxt to do. We hope we have elected officials with brains and concern for us here on thb West Side, arid that they will act in the best interest for us.
We do ask: them to do what they can to help build up this district again, to make/it safe arid attractive.
We do ask them to consider the fact that the economy on the West Side is so bad that most of its merchants are leaving. We would like to have more jobs, city jobs for its people to bring up this economy and their standard of living.1
We would like to have better police protection for our citizens, especially for- the senior citizens. Because of the two new homes for senior citizens, there are a great many of them concentrated in this area, and the; City has a responsibilityto them, to see that they, can walk about at will without being afraid of being attacked by hoodlums.
We would like to point out that though there are youth centers and community centers in West Denver, there is none in the area south of Sixth Avenue where d great many youngsters are concentrated* with no place to go, not even a yard to play in. ^ . ||
We thihk that a landlord should be forced to adhere to building standards, and that he should not be allowed to overcrowd a house. However, he shbiild be protected froiri destructive tenants and people who lie about their numbers when they move in.
Too long have we begged the City to tear down the crumbling boarded-up houses; now with redevelopment in the air, perhaps they will listen. Consider: here is a deserted eyesore, when it could be a new building dr a new home, an asset to the community and taxes Ifi thb treasury.
We hear that they are considering police substations in certain areas and ask that they. consider this one. The ,*-istirig sub-dtatiahs Ore quite a distance away from the West Side.
We ask that the city consider this peril of town for needed expansion. The more building going on in this locality, the more others will be encouraged to build.
In fact we are asking for help, help to save our community, with all avoidance of all political double-talk, or just a temporary flurry of interest from our city officials.
with inst one hope: that our Mayor and his staff will really listen to us.
Residents cmd property owners are ready and anxious to cooperate with and support programs for improvement of RfS West Side.

More than 100 employers, and some 12 community agencies' : will'1'operate booths at the Fair. The employers wilj interview job applicants, schedule additional interviews, and explain job openings and train? ing opportunities.
Committee officials in charge of the Fair explained that everyone old enough to work, including high school seniors, is invited.
It .was also pointed out that many housewives who are considering part-time or full-time employment may find such employment,, at the Fair.
For Coordinator Of Action Center
.and there w&re only two, the I committee decided unanimous-| ly to open the job to out-of-I house applications.
I
Procedures Set
The purpose of the Fair is to bring job opportunities to, the people in a convenient and-'effective way; to show .the1 wide variety of jobs available for qualified persons, regard-: less of race, color or creed; and to give hope' and encouragement to' people whose educational dnd cultural handicaps .have-.held them back.
The position of coordinator of the West Side Action Center is still open for applications.
The West Side Action Council was asked March 28 to allow Leo Rodriguez from the East Side Action Center to serve as temporary coordinator pf the West Side Center. This made it possible for Don Garcia, former West Side Center coordinator, to start his new job immediately as program analyst for Denver Opportunity.
Armando C. de Baca from the DO office attended the March meeting of the West Side,.group and made the request about Rodriguez. The Council voted to accept the latter as temporary coordinator until a permanent coordinator could be selected, s
Other business transacted by the Council in its March meeting, included acceptance of the proposed membership for the executive and personnel com-mittes.
__] Procedures for receiving applications, interviewing, and I selecting the best candidates were decided as follows:

Two Applications
At its) April meeting the Council reviewed the report of the personnel committee on its progress in hiring a new. coordinator. The committee had met, April 15 and elected Henry. Mctestes as chairman.

West Side Petition
TO: Mayor Currigan and City Agency Chiefs
There is no getting away from the fact that parts of West Denver are rapidly developing into a slum, with a grand new hospital rising, an alien, to its surroundings, in streets that people are afraid to walk on at night.
How can the people hope that the new hospital will bring a new development era to this community, with slumlike and ghetto-like conditions existing immediately around it?
A group of thinking, concerned West Side citizens met recently with their Councilman, with members of the West Side Improvement Association, a police officer and members of the,Health and Hospital staff.
They did not have to tell thesb. men aBbut these conditions oh the West Side; all they had to do was look around them, at the garbage '.cans overftdwihg by thb frbrit porches, the littered yards and streets, the doers running loose, the congestion brought about by th& toOnclo^e houses, without yards or alleys, that are over-populated.
They did not have to say that this scene was reunffiscerit of' New York's lower East Side in its early days. All this, in the -Very shadow of the new hospital, in a young and growing city, the Queen City of the West.
There are some pebple whb would Be a credit to any community that they lived hr, and fortunately we have many of them Still left on the V/4st Side. Unfdrtuhateiy, there are increasing numbers of people who would tear down any community that they \ happened to live in.
They say that on the West Sid the Slum Lord is king, yet there is proof that these landlords have fixed up their property in some cases, only to have it rapidly deteriorated by tenants who are strangers to the hammer, broom and rake, whose children ate allowed to run around, the neighborhood damaging the homes of those who are working, and who laugh at and make a mockery of the leash law on dogs or the curfew on young children.
Some of the worst eyesores on the West Side are the business places of men making a good living here; surely they owe us decent-looking buildings and unlittered grounds;
Because we feel that this situation is so serious we are asking our Mayor by petition, to study this situation cmd find a remedy for these coriditoris before the opportunity, for redevelopment because dt the new hospital {kisses us by, and the West Side is a slum that will grow until tt becomes a Frankenstein overwhelming those who could have stopped its growth;
W& are riot telling our Mayor cmd our offiddls wftcxt to do. We hope we have elected officials with brains and concern for us here on thb West Side, arid that they will act in the best interest for us.
We do ask: them to do what they can to help build up this district again, to make/it safe arid attractive.
We do ask them to consider the fact that the economy on the West Side is so bad that most of its merchants are leaving. We would like to have more jobs, city jobs for its people to bring up this economy and their standard of living.1
We would like to have better police protection for our citizens, especially for- the senior citizens. Because of the two new homes for senior citizens, there are a great many of them concentrated in this area, and the; City has a responsibilityto them, to see that they, can walk about at will without being afraid of being attacked by hoodlums.
We would like to point out that though there are youth centers and community centers in West Denver, there is none in the area south of Sixth Avenue where d great many youngsters are concentrated* with no place to go, not even a yard to play in. ^ . ||
We thihk that a landlord should be forced to adhere to building standards, and that he should not be allowed to overcrowd a house. However, he shbiild be protected froiri destructive tenants and people who lie about their numbers when they move in.
Too long have we begged the City to tear down the crumbling boarded-up houses; now with redevelopment in the air, perhaps they will listen. Consider: here is a deserted eyesore, when it could be a new building dr a new home, an asset to the community and taxes Ifi thb treasury.
We hear that they are considering police substations in certain areas and ask that they. consider this one. The ,*-istirig sub-dtatiahs Ore quite a distance away from the West Side.
We ask that the city consider this peril of town for needed expansion. The more building going on in this locality, the more others will be encouraged to build.
In fact we are asking for help, help to save our community, with all avoidance of all political double-talk, or just a temporary flurry of interest from our city officials.
with inst one hope: that our Mayor and his staff will really listen to us.
Residents cmd property owners are ready and anxious to cooperate with and support programs for improvement of RfS West Side.

Work in Many Ways

To most people on the West Side, Inner City Protestant Parish is a familiar name. But to many, Core City Ministries is a new one.
Probably few people realize that the two' are related and that Several other churches on the West Side are? active in 'the CCre City Ministries. \ v

- The Rev. A. McRaven War-ner, much better .known as "Mac," serves as director of the Core. City Ministries and works with groups of ministers and other interested persons form various churches and a-gencies..
This group is known as the
fprma-
iion of the Direct Action Task Force and its news release to the Denver. Post. April 9'. This release, contained a list of demands from Negro militants in Denver io the white commun-. ity and the press.
The part Core, City played in. this was to. act as an intermediary between the Negro militants and the white middle class. The .alienation between these two groups is so great that a go-between is necessary and Core City Ministries served
