Safe and Sound Denver is a grassroots effort of Denver residents who advocate for the safety and well being of our neighborhoods.
The proposed Group Living Zoning Code Amendment is a massive, complex, 200-page amendment to Denver's Zoning Code. It will go into effect in February.
The revised changes will:
> allow density in all single-family homes to increase a minimum of 150% -- from 2 to 5 unrelated adults plus unlimited minor children -- in any size home, during a time of COVID-19 crowding concerns resulting in increased trash, noise, parking, and infrastructure problems
> allow new 1-10 person 24/7 homeless shelters in all neighborhoods, with expansion to 100 guests for 130 days, and no buffer from schools
> allow up to 3 homeless shelters within a 1 mile radius in single family residential neighborhoods
> allow unlimited cars per household
> remove buffer zones between schools and community corrections facilities
> prohibit ability of neighbors to object to homeless shelters; notification only
> commercialize single-family neighborhoods as service providers and investors buy limited, existing single-family housing stock
Minimal compromise on massive overreach is not acceptable:
it's a politician's game
