Denver Ballot Measure 2F: New group-living rules to survive electoral challenge

Denver voters were rejecting an attempt to undo recent zoning code changes that allowed five unrelated people to share a house and expand the available plots to half the houses, election results showed at 10 p.m. Posted after.

Of the nearly 74,000 votes counted by 10 p.m., more than 68% were in opposition to Question 2F, referred to on the city’s November 2 ballot.

The code changes left people in Denver divided from the get-go, and soon after the City Council approved them in February—after a marathon meeting—members of Safe and Sound Denver campaigned to repeal the Group Living Amendment. Plan announced.

If the measure ultimately fails, the city limits allow five unrelated people to live together in the same household. In addition, half houses and shelters will be allowed along commercial corridors such as Colfax, Broadway and Federal.

In addition, the remaining rules allow the renovation or reconstruction of larger shelters and shelters run by churches, nonprofits and governments to host 100 people for up to 130 days a year, instead of the old 120-day limit.

Proponents of the code change, which was first proposed in 2018, said allowing more unrelated people to live together could help more people find affordable housing in an increasingly expensive city. Expanding the spaces available to only half houses outside industrial areas is expected to allow criminal offenders to re-join the community and better access to things like public transportation.
