City Council members weighing alternatives; Committee vote tentatively set for December 22
Members of City Council’s Land Use, Transportation and Infrastructure (LUTI) Committee are weighing potential changes to the group living proposal that would update and modernize the Denver’s rules on residential uses, following a series of discussions at the committee’s regular Tuesday morning meetings throughout the fall. The committee has scheduled a vote on a revised draft of these code amendments for its meeting Tuesday, December 22. The revised draft will be posted on the project website and emailed to our RNO in advance of the meeting. We will post it here on our website as soon as we receive it.
About the Group Living Project
Denver has an immediate need for housing. With the evolving needs of our residents in mind, the challenges of the ongoing pandemic, the renewed push for addressing issues of race and equity, and changes to other housing regulations, city planners has been working with an advisory committee to evaluate the Denver Zoning Code’s rules for “group living.” This evaluation has included a review of land uses and definitions for: households, community corrections facilities, shelters for the homeless, residential care homes, new uses like tiny home villages, and more. Based on this evaluation, planners will recommend updates to the zoning code for some or all of these housing types.
Community office hours appointments still available
City planners have been answering questions and taking comments on the proposed group living rules update at community office hours the last few weeks. Spots are still available for sessions scheduled through December 17. Use this link to make your appointment.
