Stapleton’s Zoning and Planning Committee favorably received a proposal, at its July 12 meeting, for a 9,000 square foot, free-standing building in Northfield to house a new business – Goldfish Swim School. The project is progressing through the city of Denver’s approval process and the owners/operators, Patrick and Amy Turner, anticipate opening their doors late in the first quarter of 2017. The building would be located at the northeast corner of E. 50th Avenue and Central Park Boulevard. Vehicular access will be off 50th Ave. and Beeler St. and 75 parking spaces will be provided. This is the first franchise location in Colorado for Goldfish Swim School, which is headquartered in Birmingham, MI. The school will focus on teaching children of all ages the fundamentals of proper swim techniques and will be available year-round for children four months to 12 years and for swimmers of all abilities. The Turners are eight-year Stapleton residents and live in the Eastbridge neighborhood.
