How many people rent versus own, as well as median income and educational levels, are all factors that make neighborhoods vulnerable to gentrification.
Owning versus renting — it’s a match-up that many Denverites have an opinion about. Whether it’s the classic “renters don’t invest in the neighborhoods where they live” or “NIMBY owners don’t want us to have nice things,” there’s plenty to parse.
As always, Denverite strives to give you numbers for the city’s fraught and complicated issues, and today, it’s the figures for renting and owning in Montbello — plus a few other figures that the city believes may be precursors to gentrification.
When you’re Edelweiss Air, you don’t need journalists to come to you — you just bring five of your own to Denver International Airport’s “Discover Switzerland” event promoting your new nonstop flight to Zurich next year.
“These are the journalists from Switzerland. They came from the biggest newspapers from the biggest media in Switzerland,” said Edelweiss Air’s head of corporate communications Andreas Meier. “They will do coverage about Denver, the beautiful city, the beautiful mountains here.”
What you do need is people to come take your new flight. Though actually, the airport might want it more.
