Denver has adopted a brand new zoning code, it's first major revision in over 50 years. The new code is billed as form-based. We've posted before about Denver's process towards this new code. From the Denver Post: Denver Council Passes Overhaul of City's Zoning Laws.
The Denver City Council on Monday unanimously approved an overhaul of the city's zoning laws, making the first comprehensive change to the city's land-use rules since 1956. . . .
The new code would replace one that city planners characterize as inefficient and inflexible. They said the new rules would steer growth and density to areas near transit corridors and support existing development patterns in long-established neighborhoods.
