Zoning regulates the use and development of private property in Denver, including the size and location of structures, allowed uses and activities, parking, signs, and more. Zoning is one of the city's tools for encouraging quality development in Denver reflective of the goals, policies, and strategies found in the city's Comprehensive PlanBlueprint Denver land use and transportation plan, neighborhood plans, and other small area plans. Adopted plans -- and the zoning codes that help implement these plans -- are created with community input.
