The Denver Planning Board advises the mayor and Denver City Council on land use matters including planning and zoning. The 11-member board reviews and makes recommendations on rezoning requests, plans, certain district design standards and guidelines, view planes and other land use rules and regulations.
The Denver Planning Board is established through the Denver Revised Municipal Code, Chapter 12, Article II, Division 2. The Planning Board follows the ordinance and the Planning Board By-Laws.
