Group Living: Public Open House

5:30 to 8 p.m.Tuesday, August 14
McNichols Building, Civic Center Park, 144 W. Colfax Ave.

Community Planning and Development has launched a project to review the rules and regulations that govern “group living” uses in the Denver Zoning Code. These uses involve everything from elder care to shelters for the homeless, transitional or special care housing, community corrections, live-work spaces and new trends like tiny houses and single-room occupancy.
The public is invited to the first open house for the Group Living Text Amendment, where attendees will learn about the project and share their thoughts and ideas on issues related to “group living” uses in Denver. Attendees will have the opportunity to offer feedback on the problem statement document (PDF), which summarizes the work city planners have done with an advisory committee of local stakeholders to identify concerns to be addressed in potential text amendments to the Denver Zoning Code.
  Project website includes complete meeting details and email sign up.
