Learn about the Green Roof ordinance and what it is really all about. What are the next steps and what can you do when you need to repair or replace your roof.


A Green Buildings Ordinance was approved by Denver City Council on October 29, 2018, and took effect Friday, November 2, 2018. On November 15, Community Planning
and Development (CPD) held an open house discussing the flexible options available for buildings under the new ordinance.

The green buildings ordinance applies to the following:

  • New buildings 25,000 square feet or larger
  • Roof permits for existing buildings 25,000 square feet or larger
  • Additions of 25,000 square feet or larger

The ordinance does NOT apply to parking structures, temporary buildings, air-supported structures, greenhouses, single-family homes, duplexes, or dwelling units constructed in a group of three or more attached units, where each unit extends from foundation to roof and is not more than 3 stories above grade plane.
