Is the Board of Adjustment part of the Zoning Administration?
No. City Council decided it would be better to have reviews of Zoning actions done by a completely separate agency.
Who are the members of the Board and how do I contact them?
The composition of the Board can change from year to year. The Office is not authorized to give out their personal phone numbers and it is inappropriate to contact a Board member prior to the hearing.
Any concerns may be addressed to the Office staff. Please visit our Contact page for more information.
It's my property. Can't I just do what I want with it?
The Denver Zoning Code is enacted to preserve and promote the public health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the city, and of the public generally, and to encourage and facilitate the orderly growth and expansion of the city. To this end, certain restrictions on the use of property are in place to ensure the greater community benefits.
What if I have other zoning questions?
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. You can also visit the Community Planning & Development Zoning section for more information.
How can I let the Board know my opinion about a case?
You can email our office, send us a fax, send a letter, or come in person. You can find the specific contact information that you need for your preferred method under Contact Us. Please include your name, address, date, and the address and/or case number of the property on which you wish to comment.
NOTE: If you are contacting us about a case, we must receive the message before 8:00 AM on the day of the hearing. Any messages received after this time will not be presented to the Board.
