Repeal of the Cherokee (Gates) General Development Plan

An application (PDF) was proposed by Community Planning and Development in accordance with Former Chapter 59 Section 59-314 to repeal the Cherokee Redevelopment of the Former Gates Rubber Factory General Development Plan (GDP), originally approved in 2005 for the 69 acre site at the former Gates Rubber Factory, generally bound by South Broadway, West Mississippi Avenue, South Santa Fe Drive, and Interstate 25. 

The City and County of Denver determined that the GDP is no longer necessary to implement the vision established in the I-25 and Broadway Station Area Plan (PDF), adopted by the Denver City Council in April 2016. Updated regulatory and infrastructure tools, including a rezoning into the Denver Zoning Code, amended Urban Design Standards and Guidelines, an updated Infrastructure Master Plan, and development agreements, have been developed for the site to achieve the community’s vision for transit-oriented development.  As a final step to facilitate redevelopment, the existing and outdated GDP is anticipated to be repealed.

The Process

The GDP process provides for public comment at the time of application submittal.  The GDP repeal requires approval of the Denver Planning Board at a regular public hearing with a recommendation from the city’s Development Review Committee.  The Planning Board held its public hearing September 7, 2016, and the repeal was approved and effective in May 2017.
