As of Monday the number of adults who aren't related to one-another who can legally share a single-family home in Denver, is two.

But things could be changing.

There are new zoning code revisions that can be heard by the public on Tuesday, February 11 from 6-8 p.m. at Bruce Randolph School at 3955 Steele Street in Denver, before City Council voting begins.

The proposed revisions would allow eight unrelated adults to share a home and tiny-home villages would be permitted in any part of town zoned for apartments.

“We certainly think it’s very important to bring the code up to speed with the way people living together has evolved,” said Andrew Webb, the city planner who has managed the project on zoning for group living.

Some zoning laws are dated back to the 1950s, according to Denver Post.

Webb told Denver Post that part of the goal was ensuring that some of Denver’s most vulnerable citizens had homes with good access to public transportation and jobs.
