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.

NOTE:  The Board of Adjustment's office will be closed on Monday, February 20, 2017, in honor of President's Day.  Our office will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, February 21, 2017.

NOTE:  The Board of Adjustment is in the process of updating our database.  Forms and correspondence from our office will have a different appearance.  Please bear with us as we make this change.
