To address challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, City Council has approved moving any action associated with landmark review of demolition and certificate of demolition eligibility (CDE) applications for properties deemed potentially historic to after August 3, 2020.
The intent of the landmark demolition review process is to allow for community dialogue when a potentially historic property faces demolition. The city’s efforts to slow the spread of the virus, including the closure of the Denver Public Library and ongoing limited access to historic resources often used to inform the process, has made meeting that intent increasingly difficult. This move is part of ongoing efforts by Denver Community Planning and Development to continue its work while making changes and providing additional time where necessary to prioritize community health. Landmark staff estimates that the pause will affect no more than 5 applications.
