Board of Adjustment for Zoning Appeals

The Board's sole duty is to hear and decide cases regarding the Denver Zoning Code.  The types of relief that the Board may grant are summarized on  the File a Case page under the Available Relief Under the Denver Zoning Code tab.

The Board meets Tuesday mornings in a semi-formal proceeding open to the public in the  Hearing Room (2.H.14) located on the second floor of the Web Municipal Building at 201 West Colfax Avenue.
It is improper to contact any of the Board Members concerning an appeal outside of the public meeting, and to do so may result in one or more of the members recusing from the appeals hearing.
NOTE:  The Board of Adjustment's office will be closed on Monday, February 15, 2016, in honor of President's Day.  Our office will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, February 16, 2016.

Current Events

After more than 20 years with no changes, the Board’s Rules of Procedures have been updated to reflect the Board’s current practices and the new Zoning Code.   Attached is the final draft of the revised Rules.


The Year End Report for 2014 is now available.



The Board of Adjustment is proud to announce that Jim Keavney has been appointed as our new alternate Board member.  His background in architecture will provide an excellent perspective on future Board of Adjustment cases.





Alternate Board member Rafael Espinoza has resigned his position on the Board of Adjustment after having been elected to the City Council for District 1. We wish him good luck in his future endeavors and are grateful for his dedication and service.
