For the last two years, city planners have been working with residents, policy experts, advocates and service providers for vulnerable populations and other community members to update the Denver Zoning Code’s regulations on residential uses, which govern everything from conventional households to group homes, shelters and assisted living facilities.
Some of the proposed changes:
- Allow more unrelated people to live together. Denver currently only allows two unrelated people in a unit, the new proposal would allow eight unrelated people in any unit.
- Allow residential care and group homes in more neighborhoods.
- Standardize permitting process and regulations.
- Require Community Information Meetings to notify and educate neighbors and foster positive relationships.
