Small Lot Parking Exemption Vote – Councilman Wayne New

This survey made it clear that parking remains an important issue for residents of District 10. Even though 85% of the survey participants felt that no exemptions should be allowed, this is not the question before Council. If the original bill or the amendment did not pass we would default to the original zoning that does not require any parking on small lots. Therefore, Councilman Clark’s amendment, which provided the least parking exemption, was preferred. On Monday, I voted for Councilman Clark’s amendment which was passed by City Council with a 7 to 6 vote. A final vote and public hearing on this issue will be held in May.

Capitol Hill, Cheesman Park and Congress Park have the most STRs, but STR opportunities exist in almost all District 10 neighborhoods.On June 12, 2016, after two years of discussion, Denver City Council approved a measure to allow STR’s only in primary residences. The rules took effect on July 1st and gave hosts until December 31, 2016 to obtain a business license with the city, pay the city’s 10.75% Lodger’s Tax and come into compliance with the new regulations.
