Paying online?

The City of Denver recently implemented a security enhancement to better protect our online payment processing system.  As a result of this enhancement, we are no longer able to accept payments from non-current browsers. If you are using an older browser version, please upgrade your browser to the most current version so that you can access the online payment service.

Design Standards and Guidelines

Design review is required through the establishment of design standards and guidelines through several zone districts, as well as separate rules and regulations applied to certain properties throughout the city.

Design standards and guidelines are frequently established through the general development plan process and encouraged through small area plan recommendations
