Since March, the city’s Community Planning and Development department has been convening monthly meetings with a large panel of members from different arenas – architects, preservationists, developers, neighborhood representatives, and more – to discuss and update of Denver’s landmark ordinance. At the most recent meeting, on Oct. 9, the discussion dealt with incorporating “culturally significant properties” into the mix when considering landmark standards, while explaining the use of conservation overlays. The meetings began in mid-March, and will continue through December. There are some red flags sprinkled here and there in those meeting notes – if you care about preservation – but we’re curious to see how this plays out.
