condo.construction.cover.565x300.jpg
Last year, we told you about the dearth of condo construction in the Denver metro area. Some say the reason that developers are steering clear of building condos is that most projects end up as the subject of costly construction-defect lawsuits. One of the local policy makers concerned about this issue is Denver Councilwoman Robin Kniech, who spearheaded a recent push to revise the city's Inclusionary Housing Ordinance to encourage developers to build more affordable units.

Does she think the revised ordinance will result in more condos in Denver?

Michael Schwairy. More photos below.
When we told the disgusting story of Joshua Vohs, whose crimes included using a shoe camera to take photos up women's skirts, we hoped we'd heard the last of this particular offense. But no: Michael Schwairy, 27, has been charged with doing the same thing, albeit using a higher-tech device: an iPhone. And to make the alleged crime that much creepier, the victim was a seventeen-year-old girl.

This week's Denver Cruiser Ride theme was "Road Warriors," and that was appropriate, since the weather was positively apocalyptic -- or at least it rained a bit. That didn't stop the Cruisers, though, and as a bonus, their end-of-the-world costumes helped repel the moisture. Check out Jake Shane's photos of the fun below.

The poster features so many funny reasons why folks shouldn't relocate that we decided to spotlight them one at a time. Count down our twenty favorites below, and to get a copy of your own (they're available for just $15), click here.
