In , the diagonal streets of Auraria and original Denver were renamed, with the zero point at the original southwest corner of Denver, the intersection of West Colfax Avenue and Zuni Street, near the South Platte River. According to this system, still in place in modern Denver, streets running from northwest to southeast are designated as heading north from the zero point and are numbered, while streets running from northeast to southwest are designated as heading east from the zero point and are named.
The east-west avenues, originally named, were first numbered in , with modern East 35th Avenue designated First Avenue; however, this system was abandoned in , when the city passed an ordinance linking avenue numbers to the street numbers of the diagonal grid. Where a numbered street met an avenue at Broadway, the avenue was given the number of the connecting street; thus 16th Street provided the number for 16th Avenue, and so forth. The avenues were then numbered consecutively to the north, even where they began to deviate from the diagonal grid, so that 27th Street meets 26th Avenue in the Five Points intersection.
They are also extrapolated north of the grid, beyond Denver's main northern border at 52nd Avenue to th Avenue at the border between Adams and Weld Counties. Avenue numbers are also extrapolated south from Colfax to First Avenue. Ellsworth Ave is the 00 point, and south of here avenues are named.
In , a decimal grid was imposed. Instead of counting addresses up arbitrarily along a direction, this system specified a "hundred block" for each street. For example, First Street is the block, with all addresses on any named street between First and Second Streets ascending from nearest First Street to nearest Second Street. Named streets also follow this pattern, with Cheyenne Place designated the block and numbers increasing toward the northwest.
In the diagonal grid, even-numbered addresses are on the west i. In the rest of the grid, even numbers are on the east sides of streets and the south sides of avenues, while odd numbers are on the west sides of streets and north sides of avenues. For numbered avenues, the hundred block corresponds to the number of the avenue e. Strictly speaking, only the portions of streets south of Ellsworth need be designated "South" and the portions of avenues west of Broadway need be designated "West.
Street names were originally applied with no consistency; the same road designation might have as many as ten different names in different parts of the city, and many different roads might share the same name. This inconsistency created significant problems for the Denver Union Water Company , which had difficulties both providing service and billing because of the chaotic street system. A bookkeeper , Howard Maloney, collaborated with the city to impose an orderly set of names to the roads, with each unique name designating exactly one road.
In most areas, these streets are named in alphabetical order. The first set of changes took place in , with further renaming in In , many adjacent communities adopted Denver's system.
The City and County of Denver's zoning board classifies streets into three types based on functionality. Arterials are major routes, arranged in a network to provide mobility around the city.

The foot-plus turbines proposed by Apex Clean Energy would need setbacks of a half-mile, according to the new town law. Dan Fitzgerald, senior director of development for Apex, said the meteorological tower will help the company site the project, which could include 70 turbines in Yates and Somerset. The Met tower would measure wind speed and consistency.
Apex would also like to have microphones on the tower to help study the bat population, he said. Most of the turbines are planned for between Lower Lake Road and Route 18, with some south of Route 18 as well. Fitzgerald said a series of Met towers will help to pinpoint the locations to best capture the wind. That information will be released to the public after the company gains the wind strength data from the Met towers, Fitzgerald told county planners.
He said the moratorium from the town delays the company from gathering that information, and giving the public a more precise plan for turbine locations. Fitzgerald said the Met tower is a temporary facility for up to three years and should be considered separate from the larger Lighthouse Wind project.
The member Planning Board voted for Yates to give the variance. Planners said the Met tower is the most effective method for measuring wind strength with no other viable alternatives to getting accurate wind data. Martillotta-Muscarella is a well-known artist.

A 2-inch main was hit at the corner of Van Buren and Jackson streets after 7 this morning.
The company dug three holes — on Van Buren, Geddes and Jackson streets — to turn off the gas leading to the leak. This photo shows a closed off gas line on Van Buren Street.
Residents from two homes were evacuated due to high levels of gas detected on Van Buren, Reed said. He quit a good job in finance in Rochester to work alongside his father, John Sawyer, in building the ethanol plant. The two men rallied investors, community leaders and elected officials to get behind the project. The ethanol plant opened in November , and remains the largest economic development project in Orleans County history.
He served in that role until he died from leukemia at age 72 on Oct. His son succeeded him as CEO and president.
Many of the ethanol plants are financed by giant agricultural companies. The Sawyers used local money to get the project done. The ethanol plant has given local corn growers a major market for corn. Many farmers have upgraded corn storage facilities, and added corn acreage since the ethanol plant opened.
John and Mike considered other Western New York sites for the ethanol plant. The Medina site at the corner of Bates Road and Route 31A had rail access, low-cost hydropower, and space to develop the complex that turns 20 million bushels of corn annually into about 60 million gallons of ethanol. John had a successful farming career in Geneseo, where he raised his family.

But John grew up in Orleans County, and welcomed the chance to return to his roots. On a personal note, soon after Orleans Hub went live in April , Mike called me saying he and his employees enjoyed the news site. He wondered how it would survive financially because it depends on ads to pay the bills for the Hub.
WNY Energy has been an advertiser ever since. I was working for The Daily News in Batavia 12 years ago when the Sawyers starting meeting with local farmers and elected officials to build support for the first ethanol plant in the state. It seemed then that Orleans County often came in second or third place when companies were looking at mega-projects. Gabrielle Barone saw first-hand how Mike and his father pushed the make the project a reality. She is vice president of business development for the Orleans Economic Development Agency.
John was becoming more active in local causes until his death from leukemia. He was especially interested in local history and wanted to help fund a county museum. Mike also had a passion for competitive barbecuing, travelling the country for competitions.
