Maintenance and Public Right of Way Services
The BID works year-round to keep Cherry Creek North clean, accessible and green. Services like litter and trash removal, irrigation, lighting, infrastructure maintenance, and tree and flower care ensure that Cherry Creek North is a destination that people love coming to.
About Snow Removal: Snow removal is performed by the City of Denver, businesses, residents and property owners. All of these parties are responsible for clearing the snow. The BID provides supplemental services on the public right of way and sidewalks. Once snow has stopped falling, property owners have four hours and residents have 24 hours to remove snow and ice from public sidewalks adjacent to their property as required by Denver Revised Municipal Code. The City and County of Denver is responsible for plowing the city streets and has classified Cherry Creek North as a Level A Priority.
Streetscape and Landscape
Streets are places, too. The BID beautifies the area through seasonal landscaping and decor programs with 8500 flowers planted in the spring, over 21 miles of white lights hung during the holidays and 600+ trees maintained year round.
Denver's Art and Garden District: In November of 2010, the BID financed and managed the design and construction of The New North, an $18.5 million streetscape renovation effort created to retain and attract visitors and users, and to protect and preserve the District’s character, while keeping it a competitive retail environment. With a theme of Art and Garden, the streetscape frames and supports an active and attractive public realm. Improvements included new landscaping to beautify the area and conserve water, new lighting for safety and energy conservation, and better way-finding signs to enrich the pedestrian experience.
In addition, the BID implemented 20 distinct Art and Garden spaces throughout the District, each with signature street furniture, lighting, public art or other special elements to encourage people to relax more and linger longer. The District’s signature event space, Fillmore Plaza, also received a significant renovation, allowing it to host a wider range of large events. The project was completed in July of 2011.
