It’s usually crowded, so make your reservations early at 303-361-7310. 

In addition, the Tavern is a great place to hold your private parties and events.  There are two private events currently booked - which means the dining room and bar will not be open for the public on February 14 after 4PM and on February 15 after 6PM.

Zoning Codes

City Zoning Codes

The City is planning to change the Zoning Codes so that the majority of Conditional Uses will become Permitted Uses in order to avoid the time and expense of Public Hearings for some development applications. 

Since most of the development applications submitted in recent years carry at least one conditional use, this might be a long overdue change.  On the other hand, if almost all Conditional Uses are now Permitted Uses, that further weakens communities' chances of preventing developments they believe are incompatible with their neighborhoods.  View the proposed changes to Section 146 here.

If you want to attend the City's Neighbor to Neighbor Roundtable on Thursday, February 13, to learn about this issue, please call Neighborhood Services at 303-739-7280 to reserve a spot.  There will be a light dinner and networking at 5:30PM, and the Roundtable begins at 6:00PM in the Aurora Room, 1st floor, at the Aurora Municipal Center, 15151 East Alameda Parkway.
