Landmark Design Guidelines: Signs Chapter Now Online

The draft of the new landmark preservation design review guidelines is now posted in its entirety with the release today of the final draft chapter, which offers guidance on signs on historic landmarks and on properties and structures in historic districts.


The chapter is available here (PDF).


The full draft guidelines, posted chapter by chapter, are available on the project's webpage


Dotting Our i's and Crossing Our t's

Because the adoption of the new design guidelines by the Landmark Preservation Commission falls under its "rule-making" authority, the city is required to notify interested individuals about the commission's intention to do just that.


The official public notice has been posted on the project's webpage and is available here (PDF). If you would like to receive a hard copy of the notice or of the full draft of the new guidelines, email your request and your mailing address to


The commission will hear testimony from the community at the public hearing to be held during its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, July 1, at 1 p.m. in Room 4.F.6 of the Webb Municipal Building, 201 W. Colfax Ave.

About Us
Landmark Preservation is an important function of the Department of Community Planning and Development. Denver City Council enacted the Denver Landmark Ordinance in 1967 to foster the protection, enhancement, perpetuation and use of structures and districts of historical, architectural and/or geographic significance.


Landmark Preservation staff and two landmark boards carry out that mission through design review, historic surveys and landmark designations. Staff also assists owners of historic properties by providing guidance and resources for preserving, maintaining and rehabilitating historic buildings and properties. You can learn more about Denver's Landmark Preservation efforts on our website.
