Landmark Ordinance Update – Community Meetings

For the last year, Landmark Preservation staff have been working with a task force to review and recommend updates to the rules that govern the city’s Landmark Preservation program. Starting in March 2018, the task force met monthly to discuss various aspects of the city’s preservation ordinance and make recommendations on how to improve landmark processes, balancing property rights with city and community goals to preserve Denver’s history, architecture, culture, and neighborhood character. Now, after a year of work, proposed updates to the ordinance are ready for public review. Summary documents of the changes as well as a draft redline of the Landmark Ordinance, Chapter 30 of the Revised Municipal Code, are available on our landmark.

Additionally, Landmark staff is hosting community meetings, public meetings, and office hours in various locations around the city. We want to invite any RNOs or members of the community to attend, learn about the proposed updates, ask questions, and provide feedback. Below are a list of the locations and times for the meetings.
