Historic Overlays

Historic designation is one method of ensuring that changes to a neighborhood occur thoughtfully, preserving the fabric of a neighborhood that people love — homes with history, vital dwellings that preserve the past — while acknowledging modern lifestyles. Navigating the ins and outs of the designation process and what it means for your property, however, can be a difficult task. We’ve created a Historic Designation FAQ guide, which answers many of the questions we commonly receive from property owners.

    When Denver updated the city zoning code in 2010 it included a new tool, the Conservation District. Conservation District are different than historic districts because they do not regulate demolition of historic structures and do not require design review of modifications. However, conservation districts can create special zoning that supports the character of a neighborhood.

9 News:Denver’s Congress Park: City living with a ‘small town’ feel

The beginnings of Congress Park stem from the 1880s when the area was known as Capitol Heights. Its development coincided with the tramway lines along East Colfax, East 12th Avenue and East Sixth Avenue. Prior to the Pikes Peak gold rush in the 1850s, the area was Native American land. By 1860, the blossoming city of Denver had become home to 5,000 people. One of Denver’s founders, William Larimer, sited the area of Mount Prospect Cemetery, which would evolve over the next 100 years into the present-day Cheesman Park, the Morgan Addition, Denver Botanic Gardens, the Denver Waterboard Reservoirs, and the neighborhood namesake Congress Park.

Denver’s Busiest Parks to Get More Rest Several of Denver’s largest and most used parks will continue to get rest periods during the busiest times of year. The city’s Park Rest Period initiative protects parks and maintains a balance between recreational use and public events. In 2017, Denver’s Parks and Rec instituted a trial program wherein public event permits were restricted in the city’s six busiest parks. During rest periods a park cannot be permitted for a public event. The rest periods, occurring between April 1st and October 31st, ranged from two to four weekends per month, depending on the specific needs of the park.  Each year, the Denver Parks and Recreation Permit Office determines the exact rest dates after historical events are booked, but prior to the permit opening date in early November. These dates are published online with the Office of Special Events. If you have any concerns or comments please email Park.Permits@denvergov.org.
