The Importance of Knowing Zoning

Zoning is an often complex and overlooked component in the realm of housing and development.

Your local zoning law and regulations are an important consideration when planning any improvement, structural change or addition to your home. Zoning establishes standards for the size, location of structures; uses within structures or unenclosed uses; and required off street parking for allowed uses. The Zoning Administration reviews plans and permit applications for compliance with code established standards.
When contemplating adding an ADU to your property, check with your local city or town’s website to determine if there are any limitations on the size or location of your unit. There may also be height restrictions. Zoning laws are constantly changing so check your local resource regularly.

Denver, Colorado’s zoning resource site is: www.denvergov.org/zoning.
