The City and County of Denver is taking the next step to implement the Green Roofs Initiative by issuing draft Rules Governing Green Roofs for public notice and comment.  The ordinance was effective January 1, 2018. The draft rules are available here:  Draft rules and regulations 

The rules are intended to clarify the Green Roof Ordinance requirements and key terms to ensure understanding and compliance from developers, building owners, and the public at-large. The draft rules explain what types of new and existing building projects require either a green roof or green roof combination and what projects are exempt from the requirements. 

All interested parties are invited to attend a public hearing on January 17th and present oral or written comments. You may also submit comments via email to:

January 17, 2018 at 3 p.m.
Parr-Widener Community Room (#389)
City and County Building, 1437 Bannock Street
For all the details on the implementation of the initiative as it passed on the ballot go to:  Green Roof Initiative Website.
