Start a New Organization

Groups wishing to register with Denver, may do so in the months of July, December and January. Please make an attempt to work with an existing registered neighborhood organization in your area prior to considering registration of a new group.


















Note: City offices send notifications to registered neighborhoods via e-mail for optimal speed and convenience, unless the group provides no e-mail address, in which case city offices send notifications via mail.
















The City and County of Denver registers neighborhood organizations each year to enable them to receive notification of zoning map amendments, zoning variance applications, liquor and cabaret license applications and various other informational items. In order to be considered for registration, you must agree to the following:

I fully understand and will comply with the regulations of the Neighborhood Registration Ordinance (Revised Municipal code, Section 12-91) that state:

  • Our organization will be open to any owner of any real property or resident located within the neighborhood boundaries of the proposed organization.
  • The organization will be a general purpose group formed for the purpose of collectively addressing issues and interests common to the area.
  • Our organization will assign a contact person who can be notified by phone, e-mail and mail of upcoming events affecting our neighborhood.
  • Our organization will hold a meeting at which all members may vote at least once in each calendar year and at least 12 members must be in attendance at the annual meeting.
  • All meetings shall be open to the public.
