The Denver Green Roofs Review Task Force agreed on final proposal to take to City Council. All agreed the proposal is a compromise that all can accept because it strengthens the existing ordinance while improving flexibility, allowing each owner of an existing large building and each new builder to find the most cost-effective ways to achieve the benefits of the original Green Roof Ordinance.

Here is a link to the final Green Roof Proposal.

The Denver City Council "Special Issues Committee on the Green Roofs Initiative" will meet on October 11, 2018, from 1:30 p.m. - 3 p.m. to consider an ordinance that is based on the Green Roofs Review Task Force consensus recommendations. The meeting will be open to the public and will have time for public comment. Check the online committee calendar the week before the meeting for copies of the proposed ordinance and background documents.

Any changes to the initiative will require the support of two-thirds of City Council, or nine votes.
