Questions on group living proposal answered

Since the release of the overview of updates proposed to the Denver Zoning Code's residential use regulations last month, we have heard from residents and community groups who want to know more about how the potential changes may affect their neighborhoods.

We have collected answers to the most common questions in a document that we hope will offer additional clarity. We encourage you to read the FAQs and share them with anyone interested in learning more about the proposal. We have also added two additional open houses in February and March , for a total of four, at which community members can learn about the proposal and share their thoughts in person. See complete details below.

About the Group Living Project
Denver is seeing increasing demand for non-traditional housing. With the evolving needs of our residents in mind, along with recent changes to other housing regulations, city planners will work with an advisory committee to evaluate the Denver Zoning Code’s rules for “group living.” This evaluation will include a review of land uses and definitions for: households, community corrections facilities, shelters for the homeless, residential care homes, new uses like tiny home villages, and more. Based on this evaluation, planners will recommend updates to the zoning code for some or all of these housing types.
