Denver Zoning Code

The Denver Zoning Code implements the city's vision for the future of Denver, by calibrating regulations for structures, uses and parking by neighborhood context. The Denver Zoning Code was adopted in 2010.

For properties that were not included in the comprehensive update in 2010, zoning is governed by Former Chapter 59 of the Denver Revised Municipal Code.
