The Denver zoning code is a foundational document that evolves with the city as its needs change; it has undergone several text amendments based on identified needs and public feedback.
Text amendments to the Denver Zoning Code are generally initiated by Community Planning and Development staff and must be adopted by City Council.
Amendment to Clarify Rules on Growing Marijuana for Personal Use on Residential Lands with Former Chapter 59 Zoning
A text amendment to the Denver Revised Municipal Code, Section 59-2, that would apply the same rules on growing marijuana for personal use across all residential zone districts in Denver. In 2013, the city adopted limits on growing marijuana at home for personal use, but limitations only applied to residential properties with Denver Zoning Code zoning and not to residential properties with Former Chapter 59 residential zone districts. This amendment brings old code zone districts in line with the Denver Zone Code, so that regulations are uniform across residential zone districts.
