Board of Adjustment for Zoning Appeals

view of board roomThe 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 on the File a Case page under the Available Relief Under the Denver Zoning Code tab.

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 Webb 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.

If you have recently had a hearing with the Board of Adjustment, please fill out our SURVEY to let us know about your experience.  If you have any comments or feedback on how we could improve the process, please let us know.

NOTE:  The Board of Adjustment's archival case records between 1925 and 1956 will be moving to the Western History division of the Denver Public Library.  They will be catalogued, processed, and made available to the public at a future date.  Any questions can be directed to the Western History division of the Denver Public Library.  

Current Events

After more than 20 years with no changes, the Board’s Rules of Procedures have been updated to reflect the Board’s current practices and the new Zoning Code.   Attached is the final draft of the revised Rules.

The Combined Year End Report for 2015 and 2016 will be available soon.


We are at once happy and sad to anounce that Janice Tilden, the Technical Director of the Board of Adjustment, retired at the end of March 2017.  She has been a tremendous asset to the City and County of Denver, and we will be sad to see her go.  However, we are thankful for her years of public service and we wish her well in her future endeavors.

     
    The Board of Adjustment is proud to announce that Victor Padilla has been appointed as our new alternate Board member.  He has a background working with the City and County of Denver and will be a valued addition to the Board.
