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 under Forms of Relief Available.

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.
