DENVER — After a multi-hour meeting where citizens raised their concerns about noise levels around Central 70 project’s nighttime construction, the contractor came out on top. For the being, at least. 

Just after midnight Friday, Denver’s Board of Public Health & Environment said it will uphold its decision to continue the nighttime construction, but only for 12 months, instead of 52 months, and would need to be revisited after that year to reanalyze how it was working.

In partnership with the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative, the board pledged an open-door policy with the community during this time. It said it will continue to monitor all construction activities to ensure it’s being done within the standards and criteria that was set forth in the ruling.

The board said in the statement that it is committed to a transparent and public process, and listened carefully to the feedback from Thursday evening. Many of the suggestions from the public were either already listed as recommendations or were added.

The board said it wanted to extend its gratitude to the community members who participated in the process Thursday.
