Thanks to everyone who participated in last week's in-person open house at the Carla Madison Recreation Center. If you weren't able to make it in person, join the online open house, now live and with an extended deadline! You'll be able to respond to the same materials that were presented at the in-person open house. Feedback from the open house will be used to inform the project’s draft recommendations, expected to be released in the fall.

Why are we doing this work?

In 2019, the Denver City Council adopted Blueprint Denver, a citywide land use plan that was developed based on public input. Thousands of residents helped create the policy recommendations in Blueprint Denver, which includes specific recommendations regarding ADUs:


  • that barriers to ADU construction be removed, 
  • that zoning rules be reviewed and adjusted so ADUs fit into a variety of neighborhood contexts. 


ADUs can be a great way to increase affordable housing options, keep families living on the same property, and add gentle density to a neighborhood.
