The Denver zoning code is a foundational document that evolves with the city as its needs change; it has undergone several text amendments based on identified needs and public feedback.
Text amendments to the Denver Zoning Code are generally initiated by Community Planning and Development staff and must be adopted by City Council.
SMALL LOT PARKING EXEMPTION (Potential text amendment under evaluation)
The Denver Zoning Code currently exempts small lots (6,250 square feet and smaller as of June 25, 2010) in mixed-use commercial zone districts from providing off-street parking. The intent of this exemption is to provide flexibility for small lots and encourage reuse of existing buildings in limited areas of the city. CPD and Councilwoman Jeanne Robb hosted a focus group session February 11 to discuss the exemption and explore options for revising it. Click here for a meeting summary (PDF).
