Anyone may submit written comments and/or speak in person on any items that come before the Denver Planning Board. These may include proposed map amendments (rezonings) or text amendments to the Denver Zoning Code, and plans.
In your message, please identify the rezoning case, text amendment or plan you are addressing.
Written comments are welcome throughout the adoption process for all rezonings, amendments or plans.
Once the date of a public hearing has been set, there are two time windows for submitting comments for the Planning Board’s review. We encourage anyone wishing to submit a comment to do so as early in the process as possible.
Comment Window #1: OPENS when public notice goes out, CLOSES at 5 p.m. 9 days before the public hearing. Comments submitted during this window are included in the staff report that is distributed to Planning Board members and posted online one week before the public hearing. (Note: If the staff report closing deadline lands on a city holiday, deadlines for comments to be included may change. Contact the case manager for information.)
Comment Window #2: OPENS at the end of Comment Window #1, CLOSES at 12 p.m. (noon) on the day before the public hearing. Comments submitted during this window are distributed electronically to Planning Board on a regular basis and by hard copy at the meeting.
Comments submitted after Planning Board public hearing: Comments received after Comment Window #2 or after the Planning Board public hearing are included in all staff reports prepared for subsequent meetings and public hearings on the case, according to the following deadlines:
The public is also welcome to speak at the public hearing and/or submit written comments for the record at the public hearing.
