City and County of Denver: Zoning for Aquaculture

This layer is a subset of the zoning boundaries for the City and County of Denver, Colorado to reflect the zone districts in the ‘new code’ that permit aquaculture use as a primary use. ‘Aquaculture’ is an agricultural use in which food fish, shellfish or other marine foods, aquatic plants, or aquatic animals are cultured or grown in order to sell them or the products they produce. Includes fish hatcheries, growing tanks or raceways; the processing, storage, packaging and distribution of shellfish and fish; and accessory uses such as feed storage and water treatment facilities. A plant nursery may include accessory aquaculture use, when the aquaculture is integral to the growing and maintenance of the plants, and provided the accessory aquaculture occurs within a completely enclosed structure. See the plant nursery layer to determine the locations permitting aquaculture as an accessory use. Additional information on aquaculture can be found in Sections 11.6.1 and 11.12.6 in the official zoning code. The zoning boundaries data layer is governed by ordinance and is only changed accordingly. Please note: this layer applies to the ‘new code’ only. Zones carried over from the 1956 zoning code, as well as 'DIA', 'OS-A', 'PUD', 'PUD-G' zones, need to be reviewed individually.
