Denver government buildings near state capitol will modify operations next week

Several Denver city government buildings in the downtown area and Civic Center will be on modified operations next week as a safety consideration because of anticipated demonstrations.

“Due to several anticipated demonstrations that could occur at the Colorado State Capitol” city buildings “will be open on modified operations schedules as a precautionary measure for the safety of city employees and the general public,” according to a news release from the Mayor’s Office.

Additional safety measures are expected through Friday, the release said.

“While city facilities will be closed during certain times, city service delivery will continue and has not been suspended,” the release said.

Street parking around the Wellington E. Webb Municipal Building will be restricted. People entering public buildings should expect heightened security, including fencing, screenings and adjusted operating hours.

The following facilities will be closed to the public on Wednesday and Thursday: The City and County Building, Webb Municipal Building, McNichols Building, Elections Division, Minoru Yasui Plaza, Police Administration Building, Downtown Detention Center and the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse. These facilities will operate on a modified schedule, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Tuesday and Friday.

People with business before the Denver County Court, or Denver District Court, next week should contact the courts for operation schedules, the release said.

Several city services remain on modified schedules because of COVID-19. For a listing of cancellations, closures and postponements, visit denvergov.org/COVID19.
