The LCMA is replacing the playground equipment at Sunset Park! The custom equipment has been ordered and installation will begin, weather permitting, the week of February 20th. Demolition of the existing playground and installation of the new playground will take about two weeks. The community, especially some playground experts from Lowry West, weighed in on the original design proposal to create a space with lots of free-play potential and adventure.
The playground is now complete!

Lowry welcomes Chop Shop, opening tonight Thursday 1/26 at 5 PM. Clint Wangsnes and Christian Anderson joined forces to concept this fun, family oriented, chef-driven fast quick/casual eatery. Wagsnes has decades of experience, most recently he left Zengo to concept Chop Shop that opened its Colfax location in 2014. We had the chance for a quick preview of the space, what they have done to transform Salty Rita which closed in 2016 is incredible. Wood, steel, bright colors, and light welcomes you to the restaurant. With a little bit of high-tech cooking techniques, a lot of hard work, decades of experience, and preparation the team at Chop Shop brings you fresh, delicious food fast.
Six beers, four still wines, one sparkling, and four house made cocktails all on tap promises that everyone will have a good time. An extensive menu covering things like 48hour short ribs to tasty salads as well as a great kids menu makes for excellent family choice.
Eric Honas is the onsite chef for Lowry and brings a creative twist of personalization to the menu that many may already be familiar with from their Colfax location. Bringing fresh, unique and rich flavors, to a fast dining/order at the counter atmosphere is a concept that makes chef-driven food more approachable for families, and our fast paced lives. Lowry, go check it out.

Be Prepared: Be Informed
It’s that time of year again – the drive to unsubscribe. The overwhelm of our email in-boxes seems to only get worse. You may already be familiar with Nextdoor. Here’s why Nextdoor is important and what you can do to streamline your Nextdoor communications.
The Denver Police Department and the LCMA use Nextdoor to alert the community about crime and safety issues. Nextdoor provides a way to send information out by neighborhood. The Denver Police Department has alerted neighborhoods about attempted child abductions, thefts and lockdowns in their area. Most recently, the LCMA used Nextdoor to alert the community about a series of mailbox break-ins in Lowry and the resulting replacement with more secure mailbox kiosks. Neighbors use it to alert each other of break-ins, car theft, suspicious people and more.
Nextdoor is also useful for connecting with your neighbors in other ways: notifications about community events, buying and selling items, finding babysitters, and recommending businesses and contractors. So how do you keep your Nextdoor notifications from clogging up your email?
Once you join and log into Nextdoor, click on the downward arrow at the top right of the screen. Select the “Settings” menu. Under “Emails When Neighbors Post” choose the Custom radio button. You can choose what kind of emails you wish to receive (or to receive no emails at all). It’s a good idea to at least receive individual emails about Crime and Safety issues and Urgent Alerts. At the bottom of the page, you can also select to get a Daily Digest instead of individual emails.
You can also choose to get mobile notification of Urgent Alerts, which are very rare, but usually involve critical safety information. In the same “Settings” screen, click the Mobile Alerts tab.
We still encourage you to continue to receive the LCMA’s weekly eNews. Not signed up? You can do so on our website, www.lowrydenver.com (see below). We also invite you to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (#lovelowrydenver).
No social media channel should used to get help in an emergency situation. In the case of an emergency, please always dial 911!

Resolve to save lives
As the holidays come to a close and schedules get back to normal, it’s important that we don’t take a vacation from blood donation. Blood donations decline as much as 20 percent during the winter months but the need never does.
You’re just our type to help ensure a safe and ready blood supply is always available for patients in need. Come in and donate at Bonfils’ Lowry headquarters any Monday in January and be entered to win a Colorado Winter Staycation Package.
In addition to Bonfils’ regular community donor center hours, Bonfils is offering expanded hours at the Lowry location throughout the month of January to make it easier for neighbors like you to make a lifesaving blood donation.
Qualify for the special staycation giveaway by visiting the Lowry donor center from 8 am – 5 pm any Monday in January to make a donation that can save up to three lives. Walk-ins are always welcome or you can visit bonfils.org or call 303.363.2300 to schedule an appointment.
Turn one happy hour into another. Make a blood donation at a Bonfils donor center or blood drive from Jan. 1 – 31 and get a complimentary pint at any Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom, Gordon Biersch Brewery or Rock Bottom Brewery. Visit bonfils.org/pint4pint for details.
