Land Use & Zoning Committee

The Land Use & Zoning Committee is a group of community activists, urbanists, and engaged residents in our neighborhood that meet to discuss planning and development related issues in Uptown and Denver at large. The committee holds public meetings with developers of infill projects to learn more about how development will impact the neighborhood, and is lobbying the city to update our neighborhood plan. This summer our committee partnered with the Greater Paths committee to conduct a study of the pedestrian environment to identify opportunities to make the bicycle and pedestrian experience more enjoyable.

Development pressures during the 1980s were the spark for the formation of our RNO. Residents of our neighborhood were successful in preventing the encroachment of downtown office space into our neighborhood and preserving the mixed-use character we all enjoy; get involved with Uptown’s Land Use & Zoning Committee to learn more and help create positive change.
