Community Open House

The Golden Triangle Zoning and Design project kicked off June 12 with the first community open house. The event gave attendees an opportunities to share their ideas for future zoning and design guidelines updates to realize the vision of the Golden Triangle Neighborhood Plan. If you missed the open house, download meeting materials and check out the survey results from the meeting below.

About the project

Community Planning and Development is working with area residents, business owners and neighborhood representatives to create new zoning and design standards for Denver’s Golden Triangle neighborhood. CPD will be evaluating all relevant zoning aspects including building form, height, uses, and street-level design characteristics to implement the recommendations of the Golden Triangle Neighborhood Plan.

The project will include updated design standards and guidelines to address more qualitative design aspects recommended by the plan, along with design review by the recently enabled Downtown Design Advisory Board.

The Golden Triangle (the Civic Center statistical area) is located on the southern end of downtown Denver, where it is home to the Civic Center Park, Denver Art Museum, the Denver Public Library’s Central Branch and several historic landmarks. The Golden Triangle offers a unique, culturally-rich mix of uses, history and character.

Advisory Committee

An advisory committee of 16 individuals representing a range of community interests will assist CPD in evaluating alternative zoning and design strategies. Additional community input will be incorporated through a series of open houses and other opportunities for comment.

Committee meetings will be open to the public. Meeting information will be posted here and materials will be posted in the archive at the bottom of this page after the fact.
