9/23 UPDATE – VARIANCE GRANTED – See decision here: dec.71-126.96.36.199
9/16 UPDATE – DECISION TO GRANT A VARIANCE WITHHELD pending the receipt of a Power of Attorney form from the Co-Owner of Parkhill Properties, LLC., (Hannah Harris), to Jeremy Harris, who appeared at the hearing.
Attached is the Zoning Appeal Application for Case #71-20 (164 South Fairfax Street) which is scheduled to be heard on September 15th, 2020 at 9:00AM. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we are modifying several of our hearing policies. Please see this attached info sheet on BOA Hearing Policies.7.23.20 This email contains a lot of important info, so please read all the way through.
One of the largest changes is that the BOA will now be conducting hearings with a virtual attendance option through Zoom Video (starting September 1st), in an effort to promote social distancing. Physical attendance is still an option at the Webb Municipal Bldg., room 2.H.14, but we do encourage virtual attendance. Please refer to the BOA website for instructions on how to join the virtual meeting.
Another change is that we will now require any documents including exhibits and letters of support or opposition to be submitted no later than 8:00AM on the Monday prior to the Tuesday hearing. This will allow us to ensure that Board members, City staff, Appellants, and any interested parties will have digital access to all submitted materials. If you will be submitting additional documents digitally to be reviewed by the Board, please combine multiple files into a single file before emailing it to us. If you submit multiple documents as individual files, we cannot assure everything will be compiled in the order you intend it to be.
Also, if a Power of Attorney form is required because any legal owner of the property is not able to be present, we still require the original notarized form to be submitted (a scan is not sufficient), so please mail the form to:
Denver Board of Adjustment
201 West Colfax Avenue, Dept. 201
Denver, CO 80202
You may also drop it off in person. Although the BOA office is not observing regular hours and staff are largely working from home, you may just leave the POA form in the document dropbox at the BOA counter in the Webb Municipal Building. If you leave documents in the dropbox, please notify us by email either by replying to this communication or emailing [email protected]
In order to ensure a smooth and efficient Board of Adjustment hearing with optional virtual attendance, we will be conducting demo/training sessions of the Zoom Video platform. These demo sessions will be held every Friday from 11:00AM – 12:00 Noon. We do not yet have a link set up for the demo session, but look for an email in the days to come with that link.
Please let us know if you plan to attend a Friday virtual demo, and also let us know if you plan on attending the September 15th hearing virtually, so we can adequately prepare.
