Item No. 2 - Removal of Race-Based Real Estate Covenants

The City of Wheat Ridge was incorporated in 1969. At that time, it included a number of subdivisions which had been platted in the county beginning around the 1920’s. Some of these subdivisions contain private covenants precluding sales based on race. Councilmember Urban, during his recent term on the Council, raised the question of these raced-based covenants and how the City Council could approach their removal. Our office has researched techniques available to remove these covenants or expunge such language.
 This meeting will be conducted as a virtual meeting and in-person in City Council Chambers (7500 W. 29th Avenue) if allowed to meet in person on that date per COVID-19 restrictions.  Provide public comment here on Wheat Ridge Speaks until noon on June 27, 2022 by selecting the agenda item on which you want to comment.  Refer to the meeting agenda and "how to" document to learn more about participating in the live meeting or to view the meeting live or later.
