President’s Report – John Parvensky
FLSA Changes on Exempt Employees
John Parvensky gave an update to the FLSA change effective December, 2016. Originally it was
thought that 150 staff would move
from salary exempt to hourly which would have a
impact to the employee; delaying a week of pay due to base salaries being paid in arrears. It has
since been decided that those employees effected would move to salaried nonexempt, minimizing
employee hardship. There was a detailed discussion regarding the three classifications
: hourly,
salary exempt and salary nonexempt.
John shared with the Board that
the HUD
super NOFA (Notice of Funds Availability) renewal
process was underway. The Coalition receives approximately $8-9 million in HUD grant funding
annually. There was a detailed
discussion regarding the two tier renewal
and how the
local community rank the grants up for renewal, and its impact to CCH.
Social Impact Bond (SIB)
John shared with the Board that the lease up process for some of the participants has been
somewhat challenging; some participants aren’t ready to be housed at this time which has created
some difficulty meeting the goal of having 52 by the targeted date.
The construction delay for Renaissance Downtown Lofts (RDL), Mental Health of Denver project
on South Federal along with the delay of the St. Franc
is Center
housing is
also creating some
difficulty. A collaborative solution is being sought out to utilize housing vouchers at scattered
sites to get lease up back on track.
Organizational Development Workgroup Update
John reported that the list of the work in progress items garnered from the recommendation
presented to the Expanded Executive team from each Workgroup was shared at the full
Management team meeting today. An email to Staff and Board members will go out regarding
review of the
recommendations over the following weeks, with a goal to have a
formal response to each group during the All Staff Retreat in September. John welcomed any
feedback and suggestions for prioritizing after review of the recommendations, and
invited the
Board to attend the All Staff Retreat on September 14
at the Grand Hyatt Downtown Denver.
Renaissance Housing Development Corp Report – John Parvensky
Pizza Fusion Space
The space is currently on the market and has received interest from several business’, mainly for
restaurant use. Two offers being considered is a V ietnamese restaurant and the other a very
popular take out restaurant. Since Pizza fusion used a conveyor oven, if leased to a traditional
restaurant, modification to the existing exhaust configuration would be more extensive than if
modified for the take out operation. Modification estimate bids for both options are being sought.

Conference call in info: 303-291-6940 Bridge #9596
Renaissance Downtown Lofts
John shared that the financing of the project closed in July wit
h initial equity payments being
provided by Wells Fargo. Northern Trust funds were used to advance funds due from the Federal
Home Loan grant which are delayed; this avoids usage of the general funds for the project. John
also gave an update on other funding expected from Mercy Housing, the grant from the City of
Denver, and installments from Developers fees.
John reported that due to Kiewit’s warranty work
, Developer fees for Stout Street Loft in the
amount of $175,000 are being held. Once the work is complete, the remainder of the Capitol
contribution will flow and those funds will be released.
Advocacy Report – Cathy Alderman
Denver Affordable Housing Proposal
Cathy Alderman shared some highlights from the presentation “Denver’s Next Bold Step on
Affordable Housing” given at the Affordable Housing Public Meeting on Thursday, July 21st
2016. There was a detailed discussion of the Mayor’s Office of Housing & Opportunities for
People Everywhere (HOPE) plan. Some of the
highlights of the discuss
ion was the Mayor’s
strategy/performance framework; coordination of the Mayors vision; external
partnerships/communication and community engagement, and development of policy and budget.
(Refer to handout for details.)
Tobacco Tax Initiative
Cathy discussed the proposed constitutional amendment that will ask voters to increase taxes on
tobacco products in order to raise money for critical unmet health needs for all Coloradans. The
amendment is supported by groups such as the United Veterans Committee of Colorado,
Children’s Hospital Colorado, the American Heart Association and the American Lung
Association to name a few.
Cathy informed the Board that she, along with a few other CCH staff members will circulate the
tobacco tax ballot initiative for signatures if anyone is interested in signing. (See attached
presentation for details.)
