Paying online?

The City of Denver recently implemented a security enhancement to better protect our online payment processing system.  As a result of this enhancement, we are no longer able to accept payments from non-current browsers. If you are using an older browser version, please upgrade your browser to the most current version so that you can access the online payment service.


Additions include construction projects for the expansion of existing structures or land development associated with existing structures for commercial or multi-family properties.

Minor Additions
  • A pre-application meeting/concept review is required. Development Services will determine if additional reviews are required. 
  • For most small projects, you may self-guide through the potential reviews and permits listed at the right.
  • Contact the Zoning Team for additional information.
Major Additions
  • A pre-application/concept review and site development plan review are required. You will be assigned a project coordinator to assist you through the review and permitting process. 
  • Contact the Projects Team for additional information.
