New Code Denver to Publish 4th Draft of New Zoning Code Wed, Jan. 20th

by Sean O'Hara on January 18, 2010

I just received the following information from Denver Community Planning and Development:

The 4th and Final Review Draft of the New Zoning Code and map will be published on www.NewCodeDenver.Org Wednesday, January 20th, instead of Monday, January 18th as originally scheduled. The remainder of the New Code Adoption Schedule (see below) does not change.

This schedule provides a full month for public review leading up to the Denver Planning Board’s formal public hearing on Draft #4 February 17th.  The location and time of the hearing will be posted on NewCodeDenver.org once they are determined.

Prior to the Planning Board hearing, staff from Denver Community Planning and Development will hold a fourth round of “New Code Office Hours” to answer questions about Draft #4 of the proposed new code.  These sessions offer the opportunity for one-on-one meetings tailored to specific questions from residents and property owners. They will be held Tuesday, February 9, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Thursday, February 11, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Both sessions will be held in the Webb Municipal Building, 201 W. Colfax Avenue, in the 4th floor conference room 4.I.4.  If you plan to attend the New Code Office Hours, please register at the following link so that we may schedule adequate staffing: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MXCCQLN.

Thank you for your ongoing interest and involvement in the New Code Denver effort.  As always, we are thrilled at the level of participation we’ve received from our residential and commercial communities throughout this process.  We have engaged more than 35,000 people through public meetings and association gatherings, e-mails, phone calls, letters and Website interactions.  This input has helped us improve each successive draft of the new code so that we can meet our community’s goal of having a clear, predictable zoning code that creates value and economic opportunity for homeowners and other property owners and preserves Denver’s economic vitality and outstanding quality of life.

The remainder of the New Zoning Code process is as follows:
