Denver completely overhauled its zoning code Monday night. Some places are more easily developed now, some face more restrictions on development. Many neighborhoods that are basically similar in zoning require more nuanced adherence to established design standards. The movement to legalize Granny flats made considerable progress, although not as much as supporters had hoped.
The change was the biggest overhaul since 1956 and leaves Mayor Hickenlooper with that major task accomplished.
