Lottery For Park Permits During Dem Convention Set For Thursday

A lottery to determine which groups will receive permits to use Denver parks around the time of the Democratic National Convention in August is scheduled to take place Thursday.

The process was halted Tuesday as city officials responded to complaints that members of a protest group were left out of the process.

A member of Denver-based Recreate 68 says her name was left off applications for four of the five days she sought a permit for Civic Center Park in downtown Denver. City officials then suspended the lottery while they verified their lists.

The dispute added another hitch to the contentious race for access to public areas near the convention, which will be held at the Pepsi Center west of downtown August 25 through 28.

    Denver PD had better have enough resources for crowd control. The more water cannons & tear gas you have, the better.
