Arvada CO residents can get involved in discussions about City plans and issues without leaving the comfort of their home! I've really enjoyed visiting arvadalistens.com.  I often see meetings announced where City council will be discussing some issue that's important to me, but it's at an inconvenient time so I can't attend.  But this way, I can get my 'two cents' in.

Some current topics that the City is seeking input on include: Vision - What is the one thing you would like to be different in Arvada in the next 50 years? Valued Qualities - What is one thing you would like to stay the same in Arvada for the next 50 years? Olde Town, Reno Park, and Stocke-Walter Histo...

What this report tells you:  The number of days Arvada homes in this price range stay on the market is up from last year, and in light of the fact that inventory is also up I decided to look back a couple of months.  I found that July's DOM is actually lower than June's was.

The city of Arvada provides a free service for senior citizens that is an emergency response system that could potentially be a life saver. It is called the “Lock Box Program”. The program is funded partially through donations and community grants. Officer Don Sikkema, who is the Arvada Police Department Senior Liaison, will install a “lock box” (similar to those used by realtors) to front doors that allows first responders access to homes in case of emergency. A “File of Life” sticker is applied to the front doors (of participants) to inform responders that there is crucial medical information attached to a magnetic pocket placed on the refrigerator. These lock boxes do not interfere with the normal use of the door or the lock. The address and the lock box combination are stored in a s...
