Calhoun: Wake-Up Call

Zoning code update to finally go public: Everybody must get zoned!

Denver's zoning code update, a project in the works for a half-dozen years, finally gets a public airing at a Denver Planning Board meeting at 1 p.m. today at the Wellington E. Webb Building, 201 West Colfax Avenue. Planning staffers will also be on hand from noon to 3 p.m. to answer any questions about the new code -- and there should be plenty.

Consider this great cartoon by Kenny Be, created after he perused the almost-final-final draft.
