Lowry’s beautiful historic Eisenhower Chapel needs new siding.
Did you receive the mailing from the Lowry Foundation regarding their fundraising campaign? The Foundation is working to raise funds to repair the siding on the Eisenhower Chapel. This photo of the north side of the chapel shows how badly this project needs to be done if the lovely historic chapel is to endure.
Anything helps and if you give through Colorado Gives Day your donation is matched by the campaign’s $1 million incentive fund. Please consider a donation to help restore our beautiful chapel by clicking on the Colorado Gives Day link above. Colorado Gives Day is on Tuesday, December 5th, but you can schedule your donation today!
Three Board members will be elected at this meeting and the proposed 2018 Operating Budget will be ratified.
If you are unable to attend the meeting, you may submit a proxy form, click here to download. Submitting your proxy form is important because it helps us meet quorum, or the minimum number of members needed to elect Board members and ratify the budget at the Annual Meeting.
Who may vote? Any LCMA member (Lowry property owner who pays quarterly LCMA dues). One vote per household.
There are three ways to vote:
2. Leave Section 2 of the proxy form blank, which assigns your vote to the Board Secretary.
3. Assign your vote to someone else who you know is attending the Annual Meeting by specifying that person’s name in Section 1 of the form. Note that if the person you have assigned your vote to does not attend, your vote will not be counted.
***In order to verify your vote, the name and address portion of Section 3 of the proxy form MUST be completed.***
Proxy forms must be received by Monday, December 4th at 5 pm (or at the Annual Meeting itself) and can be emailed to email@example.com or mailed/hand delivered to LCMA, 7581 E Academy Blvd, Ste 211, Denver, CO 80230.
December 7 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Lowry Neighbors, please make sure you know the name and contact information of (at least) your immediate neighbors. Knowing how to get in touch with your neighbors helps make Lowry safer. We have created a simple contact sheet, which you can download below.
Here are some real-life situations that highlight why this is important:
- Denver Police have reported nearly 200 garage doors left open by residents who were not at home. Criminals drive Lowry looking for open garage doors – it takes seconds and garage theft is reported weekly by Lowry residents. Know how to alert your neighbor to a garage door left open and know who to call if you suspect you left your own garage door open.
- The LCMA, who does not have phone numbers for most residents, gets calls about urgent situations at neighbors’ homes regularly. Burst backflows with water spewing everywhere, sprinkler systems running non-stop, front doors left wide open – make sure your neighbors know how to reach you, especially when you are out of town.
- ‘Tis the season…for package theft from porches. If you know an important package has been delivered and you may not be home for a while, send a text to your neighbors to see if anyone is home to grab it for you.
- Criminals that have robbed a house have hidden in neighbors’ yards while police search for them. Know how to alert your neighbors to on-going criminal activity.
When a few homes are easy targets for theft and other crimes, it attracts crime to the entire neighborhood. Our meetings with Denver Police illustrate over and over again how absolutely critical it is to know your neighbors and how to reach them.

Dear Lowry Neighbor,
The Denver Police Department assigns Community Resource Officers (CROs) to specific neighborhoods to address crime and safety concerns and act as a liaison to the department. Lowry’s CRO is Office Mike Borquez. Officer Borquez has been very active in and around the Lowry community and is working with the LCMA and other concerned citizen groups to address crime and safety concerns in the neighborhood.
One of the things we were recently made aware of is that CRO time allocation is in part determined by the number of people in each neighborhood who are registered on PocketGov, the city’s on-line and app-based platform.
Lowry currently has one of the lowest neighborhood PocketGov registration rates in the city.
Please fill out the short and simple on-line form to register with PocketGov.org here
Be sure to include your address so that you are counted as a user from the Lowry neighborhood.
Once registered with PocketGov, you can view Lowry’s Crime Map and sign up for crime and safety alerts from DPD’s District 3. PocketGov is also a one-stop shop for lots of other city services – view Waste Management’s Trash and Recycling pick-up schedules, register to vote and find your voting location, contact your city officials, pay your storm water bill, report street light outages or park/street maintenance issues, or renew your vehicle registration.
