This week on Denverite Now…

1) Politics reporter Erica Meltzer breaks down the results of the Colorado legislature’s 2017 session, including the compromise on construction defects reform and the “grand bargain.” Here’s the Denver Post piece Paul quoted, and here is Adrian D. Garcia’s report on the business side of construction defects reform.

2) Transportation and real estate reporter Megan Arellano discusses the results of her three-week, data-fueled journey into the world of public art and graffiti. Here’s the three pieces discussed in the segment:

These Denver neighborhoods had the most square footage of graffiti

Denver Urban Arts Fund awards 68 percent of projects to men

Trump-related graffiti has cost Denver more than $20,000 since the election

3) Food and entertainment reporter Ashley Dean did the hard work and found out which of Denver’s diners have the best milkshakes and french fries. Find her full report here.
