NEWS AND INFORMATION

Immigration Resources and FAQs

The recent Executive Orders regarding immigration, deportation and travel have caused sincere confusion and concern in our communities. In the coming days and weeks, Denver will be gearing up legal protections and supportive services and working with other providers to ensure immigrant and refugee communities have the resources they need and know what their rights are. That starts with empowering people with information and resources.

Denver has a history of welcoming immigrants and refugees and will continue to act as a welcoming city and an ally for all new arrivals.

Street Sweeping Season is here! 

Remember to always follow the sweeping time restrictions on your block and refrain from parking during the restricted times posted, even if it appears a sweeper has already cleaned the street, as sweepers may need to return to the area for additional sweeping.
 
Want a reminder about your street sweeping day?
  • Residents can sign up for street sweeping reminders through pocketgov, the City’s mobile web application. Pocketgov provides user-friendly access to city services via mobile device or a home computer. After creating a simple user profile, residents can receive both email and text notifications.
  • Request “No Parking” sticker reminders for your calendar by calling Denver’s customer service line at 3-1-1.
Street sweeping plays a critical role in keeping Denver’s streets, air and water clean. Denver Public Works’ Street Sweeping Program removes dirt, leaves and debris from city streets, which reduces air and water pollution and supports a clean environment. Last year, Denver street sweeping crews swept 143,112 lane miles of Denver streets and collected 62,848 cubic yards of dirt and debris.
