Alliance Board Members

Greg Davis (Chair)

GregDavis_pictureGreg Davis joined the Alliance Board in April of 2012.  Greg currently works as a regulator at the Environmental Protection Agency.  He has been involved in projects along the Platte River and in City Park in this capacity, but his role in the City Park Alliance is one of being a community advocate. Environmental work and research in sustainability led him to the conclusion that society’s greatest social and environmental benefits can be recognized through the advocacy of local resources.  He and his wife Melissa are dedicated “locavores”, choosing to spend much of their free time promoting local businesses, neighborhood supported agriculture, Park Hill School, and events which bring the community together.

She currently is a Colorado First Assistant Attorney General representing the Colorado Department of Revenue. She is the membership chair and past president of the Colorado Potters Guild.

Mike Fernandez

MikeFernandez_jpegMMike joined the City Park Alliance board in December 2012. With his wife, Karen, and three sons, he has lived within a couple of blocks of City Park, in City Park West and Whittier, since 1984. From games with the kids, community meetings and helping build the Dustin Redd playground (1996) to year-round birding and frequently running the Mile High Loop 5K pedestrian trail, his connection to the park is long standing. His vision for the park is forward looking, mostly centered on continuously improving the park as a natural place of peace and respite within a bustling urban core. Mike has served on numerous local and state committees and foundation boards, focusing on education and neighborhoods. He is an avid wildlife photographer. City Park is one of his favorite places to shoot and you can find his City Park albums on Flickr. Mike is a Communications Manager for the Department of the Interior.
